What if IndyCar Aero Kits Look Ugly, Silly Or Old Fashioned?

???????????????????????????????

IndyCar’s long anticipated debut of new aero kits will come in mid March at Barber Motorsports Park in everyone’s favorite state Alabama. The changeable chassis parts’ appearance – wings, noses and the like – remains to be seen, though that hasn’t prevented speculation, concept drawings and some leaked long range photos from surfacing. Nor has it soothed our growing toothache over the matter.

Exactly what the aero kits will look like is anyone’s guess, although the ideas behind them include greater speeds and differentiation between the cars which have been identical in appearance for many years now. These are both noble concepts, as visual beauty is over half the point of IndyCar, separating it from other forms of racing. With much time to ponder the possibilities this off season, some questions occurred to us regarding the countenance of IndyCars in 2015. Most pressingly, what if our beloved chariots of speed appear ugly, silly or old fashioned?

The scant early evidence hasn’t been heartening, and any such major change is bound to look odd to the eye, at least initially. This certainly was the case with the DW-12’s debut, as the car appeared bulbous, bulky and duller to race fans who’d become accustomed to the previous generations of open wheel cars. As always, the fans had a point. The recently leaked Chevrolet pictures have led observers to believe the impending aero kits will continue this alarming trend toward less sleek and sexy cars. Ugh.

So it’s a distinct possibility that they’ll be ugly. Silly looking? Also quite possible. As far as appearing old fashioned, the kits’ look most assuredly will be anything but that. While to some the phrase ‘old fashioned’ may be the most repellent of the three likely possible outcomes of the updated appearance, considering the evidence and initial eye reaction there’s good reason to be longing for IndyCar’s good old days of yore.
