Dallara DW12 (IndyCar)


A mitad de septiembre acabó la temporada en la IndyCar y con ello la primera temporada del nuevo monoplaza diseñado por Dallara, el DW12. Se trata de la cuarta generación de monoplazas que el fabricante italiano ha desarrollado para el campeonato americano. El nombre de este coche rinde homenaje al piloto Dan Wheldon, fallecido en la temporada 2011 debido a un fatídico accidente en el óvalo de Las Vegas.
