Honda and Chevy to compete for 2015 Indy Lights engine supply In Toronto this year AR1.com saw Honda making a pitch to Anderson Promotions about supplying a Honda engine for the new Indy Lights car in 2015.
Now Reigning IndyCar Series Manufacturers' champion Chevrolet is among several possible engine suppliers for 2015, as RACER reports, who spoke with GM Racing boss Mark Kent about the brand's interest during the recent Mid-Ohio event.
“We've actually had conversations [with IndyCar] over the last three years on Indy Lights,” he confirmed, referring to the series' recent and ill-fated attempts to overhaul Indy Lights. “IndyCar was trying to re-define Indy Lights. We've actually had some dialogue exploring it. There was an opportunity for us to get involved in Indy Lights that made business sense to both of us.
“That sort of went away, but [IndyCar and Andersen Promotions] has reached out to us recently to explore our interest in a new formula. In all honesty, we have not had time to go back to it, but we will. We wonder if the Indy Lights series will re-emerge and if it doesn't make sense for Chevrolet to be involved.”
“Really, the interest from Chevrolet being in Indy Lights would be an opportunity to potentially demonstrate a different technology, where there would be an opportunity to demonstrate our EcoTech four-cylinder turbo, for example," he explained. "So we need to sit down with IndyCar and understand the direction they're going and if there's a fit.”
