New IndyCar might be wingless and flexible

Could this be the wingless car designer Ben Bowlby is designing?

According to this SPEEDTV.com article, one of the new IndyCar designs fairly well advanced is a lightweight car with no wings and a 4-cyclinder engine that is not a stressed member. What that means is that the chassis will flex like an old flexible flyer snow sled and be a real handful to drive and setup. Couple that with no wings to balance the car and we could see cars moving and dancing all over the track. That could actually result in a more entertaining racing product because drivers will be more prone to mistakes.
