Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare...
Indy cars, the fastest most dangerous racing machines on Earth. GT sports cars, the fastest most expensive road cars. These two extreme forms of racing are designed to push man and machine to the limits and beyond, these high performance monsters are built for just one purpose, to beat the opposition.
The IndyCar Series is the premier level of American open wheel racing. Every IndyCar is hand built, half a million dollars’ worth of precision engineering. The rules make sure that each driver is given an equal amount of power, every car has a turbocharged 2.65 litre V8 engine. We follow two top young drivers from the Tasman Motorsports IndyCar team, Brazilian André Ribeiro and Mexican Adrián Fernández, competing in the fastest race in the world, the Michigan 500. It’s a race at the Michigan International Speedway that will give one of these drivers the greatest triumph of his career.
IndyCar engines pound out about 900 horsepower, nine times more than a similar sized passenger car engine. The only way of generating such awesome power from such a small engine is to use a turbocharger to force feed its cylinders with air. The principle is similar to that of a jet engine, a turbine system sucks in cold air building up high pressure above the cylinders, this is called the boost pressure.
