Let’s face it – the winter months as a Verizon IndyCar Series fan, observer or onlooker can be tough. There isn’t much going on.
Which is why when cars are on track, even if it’s just the first day of testing and it’s only manufacturer testing with ability to see the video obscured by a camouflage James Bond movie-style intro wrap, it’s still a glorious thing.
Thanks to Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s Twitter feed and sports car veteran Guy Cosmo – who’s recently expressed an interest in one day driving an IndyCar – we have that most mega noise of the 2.2L V6 turbos cranking at the Sebring International Raceway short course for a Honda manufacturer test day.
Enjoy the below videos. And if you’re particularly eagle-eyed, see if you can spot the visual differences on the new-for-2016 Honda aero kit, which is making its debut this test with RLL Racing (Graham Rahal) and Andretti Autosport’s trio of Carlos Munoz, Marco Andretti and Ryan Hunter-Reay.
