    New car on display at Mid-Ohio Indy event this weekend. I'll see it in the morning. That pic is most likely in a pit stall at Mid-Ohio.

    It has been a long time since I thought an open wheeled car looked good. Nicely done Indy.

    So, no more bumpers behind the rear wheels?

    They look great. Everything looks purposeful....unlike modern F1 cars.

    Wow, what a high-tech garage...did they develop this new Indy car in a barn? HAHA


    I like the looks of the new car, it's certainly much better looking than the current Indy car IMHO. I hope the finished product doesn't deviate too much from what we are seeing here.

    Aie yi-yi.... Methinks you've got it backwards. They "look" great, that's fer sure. But as screwy as each F1 car "looks", everything on it has a purpose, otherwise it wouldn't be there; unlike the mandated body and chassis of IndyCar. ;)

    It looks fantastic without the rear bumper. Well done! Let's hope the final product closely resembles this.

    I think the Lola T93/00 (with the higher downforce aero) like Mansell raced is one of the best looking open wheel cars of all time:

    Of course everything on an F1 car is there for a purpose, but it's their mandated proportions that look ridiculous.

    There's no need to defend F1, I am a huge, but objective, fan. The current crop of cars look like rolling jokes. They look like **** and sound like ****.

    And . . . . the following year none of the Penske's qualified . . and Tony George created the IRL. So yeah . . . if that's what you call success.
