E.J. Viso, who competed last season for KV Racing Technology, was the first driver to be fitted in a mock-up monocoque of the 2012 IndyCar Safety Cell at the Dallara Automobili factory in Italy this week.
Drivers of different heights will provide feedback regarding comfort, pedal positions, sight lines, headrests, steering wheel positions and leg room as part of the development process. Graham Rahal, among the taller IZOD IndyCar Series drivers, is scheduled to visit the facility in mid-November. Additionally, Dallara personnel will measure their upright position relative to each other.
