Speed Channel: INDYCAR--ORECA Considering 2012 Aero Kit

At present Dallara, Honda & Lotus have thrown their hats into the AeroKit ring for the 2012 IndyCar season.......according to Speed's Marshall Pruett, French sports-car constructor ORECA is also considering building an IndyCar aero kit for 2012.

Quoting from the article..............
Speaking to SPEED.com from the paddock in Sebring, Florida, ORECA technical director David Floury says he’s had the aero kit regulations on his desk for some time, and believes the Hugues de Chaunac-led company is ready to deliver a competitive aero kit directly to a team or an auto manufacturer.

“We do a lot of body kit design and production for sports cars, and now with what the [IndyCar Series] is doing for next year, this is exactly the kind of thing we would like to do,” he said. “I used to work for Dallara and am very familiar with Indy cars. Plus, I love very much racing in the USA; our entire team loves the way racing is done in the US. This is very appealing for us, and with what [the IndyCar Series] will do with the new Dallara chassis and engines, investigating the aero kits are something we are interested in.”

According to Pruett's article, ORECA officials have already met w/IndyCar boss Randy Bernard & other IndyCar officials and are examining the aero-kit specs' for the 2012 season, the first under IndyCar's next-generation chassis rules. Considering the success that ORECA has had in other formulas' this has to be another piece of good news for the IndyCar Series............. :)
