A casual fan could look at a current Dallara modified to accept a turbo engine (no airbox), and not be able to distinguish it as different than the red Lola.

Without the ugly shark fin, the blue one doesn't look much different.




The casual fan will recognize this as an Indycar. The long time fan will see it as a natural change, something more like what an Indycar would have evolved into beyond '97 had the boxy first generation IRL chassis not been used. The Lola also has it's direct correlation to Indy Lights. Delta Schwing does none of these. Gimmicks like lights on the side aren't going to bring in new fans. Someone who wasn't into racing isn't going to get into Indycar because of lights on the sidepod.
