IndyCar: First test of larger twin-turbo engine slated for next week

The first on-track test of Honda’s and Chevy’s larger 2.4-liter twin-turbo V6 IndyCar engine will happen on the Indy Road course and oval this coming Monday and Tuesday.

The test will be without the hybrid portion of the power unit, i.e. the KERS system and the electric motor and battery.

With the hybrid engine rumored to be delayed until a new chassis is introduced because of weight issues, it really would make sense to implement the larger engine (without the hybrid add-on) into the series first, since the drivers complain that the already overweight car is too slow.

The 2.4-liter engine will, of course, make more HP than the current 2.2-liter engine.
