    Wink INDYCAR LEAGUE Forming Now - Authentic Tracks, Oval Racing, No Assists

    The 2014 RACEDEPARTMENT INDYCAR Series Championship

    Organized around one of the oldest existing purpose-built automobile racing circuits in the world, the INDYCAR Championship has been the home of the most grueling, most dangerous tracks in the world, including many high speed ovals. Names such as Mario Andretti, Jack Brabham, Jim Clark, Emerson Fittipaldi, A.J. Foyt, Chip Ganassi, Harry Gant, Dan Gurney. Graham Hill, Arie Luyendyk, Rick Mears, Bobby Rahal, Johnny Rutherford, Jackie Stewart, Al Unser, Jr., Henry Ford, and Roger Penske all sit forever in the I.M.S. Hall of Fame. INDYCAR has also been a pioneer, during the modern era, by encouraging women and minorities to race. Janet Guthrie, in 1976, not only raced the Indy 500, but finished ahead of Dale Earnhardt, Sr. that same year at Daytona. Willy T. Ribbs broke the color barrier at Indy in 1991. To this day, diversity and fair competition remain the touchstones in IndyCar, with ten different drivers winning in 2014.

    The car is the 2014 DW12 named after the late Dan Wheldon, a beloved driver who lost his life at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2011. The DW12 was a true innovation, which slashed costs some 40% from the previous car, while maintaining the latest technology, including a “safety cell” that was sold by IndyCar and “aero packages” (developed by engine suppliers in 2015) that were fully customizable, fully tethered, variable per track, and entirely malleable by the teams, within limits. Honda and Chevrolet supplied the V6 Turbo engines, which produce a maximum of 700bhp, 300ft.lbs. of torque, and 12,000RPMs, with a dry weight total of 1,575lbs. Dallara was enticed to build a factory in Indianapolis and be the main chassis supplier, also reducing costs significantly. Dallara (which makes the chassis for the Haas F1 Team), chassis refinements, aero innovation and team tailoring led to the cars of 2016, which produce more downforce than a Formula One car.

    Hey Robert! Hope all is well in your world. Good to see you guys plugging along and getting the most from the game on X1. Best of luck with your Indy Car campaign.

    To potential drivers, as you can see, these guys are super professional and pay attention to detail when running their leagues. If you're looking for a fantastic group to join on X1 this is a great option.

    Hey @Ch1ps N Queso! Just saw this. Thanks a lot for that. We miss you, but I know you are busy with your own league. In fact, we seem to be trading car types. Great minds think alike.

    Saw yous IndyCar League. Hope it went well. Our oval experiment is coming up, and the only way we can have a shot is with damage off. (Tires and A.I.). Hope SMS gets they shite together and delivers on those ovals they promised. Otherwise, it's morphed into a damn fine game.

    Because of the lack of follow through with ovals, were were forced to run Mojave Coyote Noose w/ no pit stops and damage off. If you turn damage on, you cannot run A.I., as they crash on the front stretch and end up in pieces. We were hopin that SMS was saving the Indy 500 oval for a pre-500 release to celebrate the 100th running, but no such luck.

    I was hoping that as well. Seeing that the Indy track for pCARS is done(all layouts)... stupid licensing problems.
