Indycar series 2023 preview
The Indycar Series is back for another portion of tire-guzzling American motorsport action, with this season the latest before some major rule changes.
Last year’s thrilling series saw Australia’s Will Power crowned Drivers’ Champion after winning just one race, while Team Penske teammate Josef Newgarden finished second despite winning in five races.
Two-time champion Newgarden has finished second in the title race three years in a row and will be determined to take it one step further this season and pry the title away from Power in what looks to be another fascinating battle between the two teammates.
Veteran racer Scott Dixon, meanwhile, will be in the hunt for a seventh IndyCar Series title as he aims to tie AJ Foyt’s record for most open-wheel championships in North America.
This year’s series is the last for a switch from 2.2-litre engines to hybrid engines for 2024, but there are also some major rule changes for this year. Double points for winning teams have been dropped for this series, while 100% renewable fuel will be introduced for the cars in the new season (take that, Formula 1).
With 17 races at 15 tracks across North America, the 2023 Series kicks off, as usual, on March 5 in St. Petersburg, Florida, with the season highlight being the Indy 500 on May 28, before the final race at Laguna Seca in Monterey , California on September 10.
