SAFEisFAST VIDEO – SAVING FUEL… AND STILL GOING FAST + RAHAL’S ARGETSINGER AWARD CEREMONIES COMING UP

SAVING FUEL… AND STILL GOING FAST

Being asked to save fuel isn’t one of the real fun parts of being a race driver, but the ability to conserve fuel – while still going fast – has won an awful lot of big races.

In IndyCar racing, it allows us to often run a different strategy and take advantage of the caution periods, make quicker pit stops, or even make one less pit stop than the others.

In our latest video a group of top IndyCar drivers, led by the legendary fuel miser Scott Dixon, reveal their fuel-saving secrets. Simon Pagenaud, Sébastien Bourdais and Graham Rahal add to the menu of techniques to stretch fuel.

It’s a skill that all drivers will have to call upon at some point in their careers.
