Honda is introducing the Super Speedway Aero Kit developed specifically for this year’s Indianapolis 500 IndyCar race.
Created in North America by Honda Performance Development (HPD), the latest aerodynamic package tailored to the Honda-powered Dallara Indy car chassis was elaborated for the 99th edition of the Indy 500 race where Honda wants to obtain its 11th victory since 2004. It was developed using the latest advancements in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technologies while for validation they used Driver-In-Loop (DIL) simulators.
The new aero kit was tested in a full-scale wind tunnel and after that further testing was conducted on the track to finalize the package’s characteristics. HPD’s Super Speedway Aero Kit will be shown for the first time this Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The official practice session for Indianapolis 500 is scheduled for May 11 while the race will be organized May 24.
