Thanks to Driver-In-Loop (DIL) simulators, Honda can minimize waste at the prototype stage. They allow aerodynamic direction to be simulate prior to the creation of full size components. After that, each component was tested in a full-scale wind tunnel to make sure actual aerodynamic performance characteristics as well as create aero maps to be used during on-track testing.
Honda IndyCar Series Aero Kits provide drivers and teams to tune the cars to their desired characteristics as well as provide visual variety to engage with the fans. Aside improving the performance, aerodynamic safety was also primary focus in the development process. Honda has well established history of utilizing its development resources to produce a safer racing environment.
