Enhanced Push-to-Pass Feature for 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series

Pine Belt 2 Enhanced Push-to-Pass Feature for 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series

More power will be seen at the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series as the push-to-pass feature will be getting an increase in available ponies. Drivers activate the feature by pushing a button on the steering wheel. Once activated, the twin-turbocharged 2.2-liter Chevrolet/Ilmor V-6 engine will offer a brief moment of increased boost pressure from 150 kPa to 165 kPa when attempting a pass during the race. Last year the horsepower increased by 20 ponies when the feature was activated, but 60 additional horsepower will be available for the upcoming racing season. IndyCar President of Competition and Operations Jay Frye stated, “This technology update is part of IndyCar’s ongoing initiative to enhance the overall level of competition and excitement even more.” Pine Belt Chevrolet in Lakewood is excited to see how the upgrades will affect the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series.
