Returning to Turbo Power

Helio Castroneves IRL Indianapolis 500 Motor Speedway - 2008 Indy 500
Originally uploaded by J4F1950 reports the IRL will be changing their engine program to incorporate turbochargers by 2011. Before the nasty seperation, the use of turbochargers were used in CART for many years. I remember going to the Long Beach GP back in the day and love the way cars sounded. Besides the use of turbos, a drop in cylinders to either 4 or 6 has been mentioned. Which I think will probably benefit the consumer since technology in racing will always trickle down to the consumer. Let's hope that there will be more manufacturers stepping up to the plate in the rebirth of open wheel racing in America.
