Latest look at revised 2015 Dallara Indy Lights chassis

By

RACER has the latest renderings of the new-for-2015 Indy Lights chassis that will be produced by Dallara, and shown here in oval trim, the Dallara IL-15 features a wider front wing, lower, slightly narrower rear wing, new end plates, a re-profiled nose, and alterations to the floor ahead of the sidepods.
2015 Indy Lights car project leader Tony Cotman spent last week at the Dallara factory in Italy working through these detail changes, among other items, for IndyCar’s top-tier training series.     
The Cooper Tires-shod category revealed its choice of engine late last month, announcing England’s Advanced Engine Research (AER) firm will supply a 450 hp 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder powerplant. Based on its P1/P2 sports car motor, the lightweight unit features port injection and a 50hp Push-to-Pass option.
Initial testing for the car has been moved up from August to July, according to series boss Dan Andersen.
“Testing will now start in July, first in Italy for its shakedown then here in August in the U.S. at some tracks that are on the IndyCar schedule,” he told RACER. “We are also planning to display a show car at the Indy 500 in May.”
Andersen is also considering holding a test with the car in Europe to introduce the new Indy Lights package to interested drivers and team owners.
