Chevrolet Presents All-New 2015 IndyCar Aero Package

Chevrolet-powered racecars competing in the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series will feature new aero packages developed by automaker. Chevrolet has introduced the road course/short oval body design at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, with the new package gaining new front wing elements, sculpted side pods and a new rear wing.

Chevrolet will also introduce a speedway configuration for the aero kit, designed for high-speed ovals, ahead of its competitive debut at Indianapolis in May.

“We focused on developing an aerodynamic package that delivers an balanced combination of downforce and drag, along with integrated engine performance. It’s a total performance package,” said Jim Campbell, General Motors U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports.

Compared to the previous design, the new Chevrolet road course aero configuration delivers greater aerodynamic performance, allowing drivers to enter and exit corners faster, while maintaining high speeds on the straights.

Chevrolet has tested the aero kit race tracks including Homestead-Miami Speedway, Circuit of The Americas (Austin, Texas), Texas Motor Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway.

Major changes over the 2014 DW12 aero package include a front wing that features new pedestal-mounted “front uppers” toward the outer edges, new sculpted “wheel wedges” in front of the rear tires, more compact engine cover and side pods, new larger rear bumper pods, as well as a multi-element upper rear wing along with louvered end plates.

The new aero package will be raced for the first time on March 29 at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, Florida.
