Chevrolet in IndyCar, back to 2005
With the deep renewal of technical rules in IndyCar planned for 2012, numerous rumours have
emerged lately. Nevertheless, one of them is increasingly insistent and a well-known brand of GM
Group could come back.
GM is to reinforce its presence in motorsport from next year on in Grand-Am and, as the rumours
say, with Cadillac in SCCA World Challenge. Many people asserted that IndyCar would be the next
step. Notably, Racer reopened speculations by pointing out that Chevrolet would come back in the
main single-seater discipline across the Atlantic - with a V6 turbo that would be allowed as engines
in 2012. The announcement could be made tomorrow in Indianapolis.
The directors of brands and the discipline are still remaining silent currently, by insisting that
discussions are not limited towards a single motorist or discipline in particular. Nevertheless, what
we see here is the interest that constructors have when rules are built on new foundations. With the
aerodynamic kit and new engines that are to change, many constructors and motorists echoed an
eventual interest. Formula 1 should think about it before possibly losing their status of motorsport's
competition pinnacle, which they gained thanks to competing in every domain. This is decreasing in
F1 whereas it is increasing in IndyCar.
Nevertheless, let's make concessions. At the end of 2005, Chevrolet left IndyCar, officially declaring
that they were not able to invest as much as Japanese contenders. Even though investing in IndyCar
is not as consequent as doing it in NASCAR or even Formula 1, let's hope that Chevrolet's eventual
comeback would not be a flash in the pan only.
