Is This the Future of Indy Cars?

I had chance to talk to Ben Bowlby, the chief technology officer for DeltaWing Racing about this new concept car they've created. DeltaWing Racing is part of the Ganassi Group, and this is a concept car they have submitted to ICONIC, the race car design oversight committee for the Indy Racing League.

If DeltaWing's design is accepted, they will make their designs available to the public, students, the media, and the racing community via their website. Anyone will be able to make any changes, improvements, or suggestions. Racing teams can take the designs, make their own improvements to it and have their very own car design on Race Day 2012.

I was especially interested in the effect social media (my chosen profession) has had on their way of thinking.
