INDYCAR to introduce next phase of cockpit safety

Indycar announced Tuesday the planned introduction of the next step to improve cockpit safety for all drivers in the NTT IndyCar Series.
All cars participating in an April 24 open test on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval will be fitted with Advanced Frontal Protection (AFP), a titanium piece made by Dallara.
“Safety is a never-ending pursuit, and this is INDYCAR’s latest step in the evolution,” INDYCAR President Jay Frye said.
A halo-type device was considered, but it cannot be fitted to the current version of INDYCAR’s chassis.
