I guess AJ Fat, Jabba Floyd and Fat ToNy Stewart will never fit in one of these rocketships ever again :shakehead
INDYCAR has formed a partnership with Red Bull Advanced Technologies to design an Aeroscreen for enhanced driver cockpit protection that will be implemented for the outset of the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season, the two organizations announced in a joint news conference at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The Aeroscreen is being developed by Red Bull Advanced Technologies to reduce the risk of driver injury from debris or other objects striking the cockpit area. The driver safety innovation that will encompass the cockpit consists of a ballistic Aeroscreen anchored by titanium framework.

I'm all for it. It seems asthetically pleasing.
Now, if they could just get rid of the rest of that pig-ugly car.

Goddamn it. If AJ Watson had wanted a roll cage on an Indy car, he'd have welded one on there.

Just put fenders on the wheels and add a second seat.

Now you got an open LMP2 car.

No chance that Memo Heguy would survive the pond, in this piece of shit.
Trapped like a goldfish in a bowl.

And to think I was "Driven" to almost buy a used DVD of that movie, last week. What was I thinking?

The first-and only-time I'd ever heard the term "front wheel drift" was in that movie...
