IZOD Indy Car Surprise Good News on the Manufacturer Front

Filed under: The Disciple Blogs — Disciple of INDYCAR @ 10:26 pm

Howdy readers…my apologies for missing a day or two. I decided to head west for some early season skiing and had a great time. While I was gone I noticed the hot rumor making the rounds is that Chevy will return to Indy Car racing in 2012.

No one has confirmed, but no one has denied, either. The best rumor is that Ganassi will be the flagship for Chevy. I like that idea.

My thought is that Honda (not to mention fans) would really like a Japanese manufacturer (Honda), a European manufacturer (probably Fiat) and an America nameplate (Chevy). Gee, for a series supposedly on its deathbed things are looking up, eh?

I really enjoy hearing good news after having been off the grid.

  1. Welcome back. Hope you found some early steep and deep.

    It is great news. It’s good that Ganassi may be the flagship team for Chevy; I’d like it better if it could be one of the ‘lesser’ teams (KV, Panther, D&R), instead of a rich getting richer thing, but beggars can’t be choosers. Although to me, one key is that the rumors identify ONE team as the flagship, suggesting that Penske wouldn’t be also getting Chevy motors; the idea of a rivalry not only by team, but also by engine (and hopefully aero package) would be huge.

    A third manufacturer would be outstanding, especially if that went to Penske. Let the masses keep affordable Honda power, and the power teams assume the R&D costs for the new manufacturers. I wonder if Randy can convince Gerry Forsythe to unwad his official ChampCar souvenir panties and get Cosworth to partner with a manufacturer. It’d be great to get them back in the mix.
