The current cars aren't pretty but if memory serves they looked much better when they were first shown than they are now with current body kits and aero bits.

I wonder how much of that will happen to the new version...

The front wing looks like it pretty much came from 1985.

I like the cleaner look, especially when the car has been designed with more downforce.

Pretty car - now for my racing rant.

These standard cars have ruined racing both indy and NASCAR. The whole inventiveness that drove the sports is gone as well as too me all of the fun. Each team should be able to build and field whatever it wants, yes one team will be better. And yes team with the most money wins.

We have turned racing into a safe space where everyone is afraid to tell drivers and teams they didn't win. Everybody now gets a participation award with points and segments and on and on.

Communist racing is no fun. They will continue to tear don grand stands to make the tracks look fuller and look back at past glories and wonder why snow ones comes anymore.

ok my rant is over,

They look a lot better, but the wheel pods in front of the rear wheels still look too big. I can't wait to see the road course bodywork. I thought they had one on display at Mid-Ohio and they were supposed to test their today, but I haven't found any pics yet.
