Indianapolis, IN—BAT Engineering’s Alan Mertens and Bruce Ashmore were recently profiled by MotorsSport’s Gordon Kirby in the latest edition of his highly respected insider column, “The Way It Is.” BAT Engineering has made a proposal to the Indy Racing League for the 2012 IZOD IndyCar design.
Kirby, who has seen the full arc of the IZOD IndyCar Series through his decades of contributing to the sport with his journalistic coverage, pressed the designers about their design, the infrastructure that will be required to support the teams, and the various ways to feature efficiency with the design.
Safety is a key focus of the BAT Engineering design, and as the clock ticks on while the process moves forward, the conversation moves to the drastic need to move forward in 2012 before yet another back injury is suffered with the current design.
The two Indianapolis 500-winning designers also shed some light on the comprehensive production, spares, and team integration plans that the BAT Engineering business plan holds as well as the long-term plans for the organization.
