AERO KIT TESTS
IndyCar moves to a new universal aero kit for 2018. Previously, the engine manufacturers had made their own.
The new aero kit is expected to bring closer racing between manufacturers while producting less downforce
and requiring greater driver skill.
The new kits were first tested last year on ovals and road courses by IndyCar. That testing concluded Sept 26
at Sebring Raceway.
Next, the engine manufacturers were given 5 days to test the new kits before Dec 17th.
Each engine manufacturer is also given 2 days to test their engines until March 29th.
Firestone is given 4 tire test days, 2 before March 30th and 2 after.
Each IndyCar entrant is permitted five team test days --
three in the offseason window (Jan. 8, 2018 - March 29, 2018)
two during the in-season window. (March 30, 2018 - Sept. 16, 2018)
Team with rookie drivers get three additional test days.
Full-season IndyCar teams get an additional day during the offseason and in-season to test an Indy Lights driver.
Teams new to the series get two additional test days.
