INDYCAR’s 2024 Hybrid Future Sees Successful Test at Sebring

As anticipation builds for the final three races of the 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season at World Wide Technology Raceway, Portland International Raceway and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, an important step toward the 2024 season was made this week at Sebring International Raceway. For the first time on track, the 2.2-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engines used by NTT INDYCAR SERIES cars were paired with their hybrid components in a successful, extensive two-day test Aug. 16-17 under extreme conditions in central Florida. Using the eight-turn, 1.7-mile “short course” at Sebring, both drivers combined to pound out over 800 laps and approximately 1,400 miles to put the INDYCAR SERIES engines with hybrid technology to tests they’ll see in competition starting in 2024. “I’ve been a big part of the testing of the new hybrid – running on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course without regeneration power like we’re running here. Teams and drivers already are discussing how the added horsepower and efficiency of the hybrid units will affect race strategy and planning.
