The Indianapolis Star reports that KV Racing Technology co-owner Jimmy Vasser favors delaying the introduction of IndyCar's planned new aerodynamic kits until 2013. Although the $75,000 cost of each kit is part of his objection, the Star reports that Vasser also thinks the series should have something new to offer in 2013 following the introduction of the new chassis with its standard Dallara body.
However, Mike Hull, managing director of Ganassi Racing, said that the kit system is key to IndyCar's objectives of engaging new engine manufacturers by providing a way for them to differentiate themselves visually.
"We want to engage these manufacturers, and if they want to identify themselves with an aero kit, why should we deny that?" Hull said.
