Dallara Automobili is an Italian chassis manufacturer for various motor racing series, being most
notable for its near-monopoly in Formula Three since 1993. Dallara also produces the chassis
used by the IndyCar Series, Indy Lights, FIA Formula 2 Championship, World Series by Renault,
GP3 Series, Super Formula, Formula E and ADAC Formel Masters and is one of the manufacturers
in the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series. In recent years the engineering activities have
expanded considerably (now represents 40% of total sales), both in terms of the racing cars and
high performance road cars.
Dallara was founded in 1972 by Gian Paolo Dallara and is headquartered in Varano de' Melegari,
The IndyCar Series, known as the Verizon IndyCar (as of present) Series for title sponsorship
reasons, is the premier level of open-wheel racing in North America. Its parent company began in
1996 as a competitor to CART known as the Indy Racing League (IRL) which was created by then
Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner Tony George. In 2008, the IndyCar Series merged with the Champ

be adding/updating track.ini and setups for both users and A.I. and they will be available for
There are two different type cars for this mod and MUST be used in this way for the mod to work
properly due to ride-height issues.
Chevrolet - USER Roadcourse. Cars you will personally drive on roadcourses
Dodge - USER Oval. Cars you will personally drive on ovals
Ford - Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) Roadcourse. Cars the computer will drive on
Pontiac - Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) Oval. Cars the computer will drive on ovals
If you wish to use an A.I. car for your own, You will need to export both car and pitwagon paints
in-game from the "Opponent Manager" screen, create a "NEW DRIVER" and use "Chevrolet" for
Roadcourse or "Dodge" for Oval then import the paintings.
The rear wing and front spoiler will fall off if damaged enough. The front spoiler will fall off
in halves (one side or other) or the entire nose as a whole. You will also see the front wheels
removed if damaged in all views including cockpit view.
The center rear view mirror will reflect the rear wing (oval or roadcourse), the rear tires,
the wheel ramps, the alcohol blue backfire flames, and rainlight box. If damaged and removed,
you will also notice the rear wings missing in center rear view mirror.
There is a damaged sides model on the vehicle. If slapping the wall, you will see a carbon
texture as if to simulate the decals and paint being scrubbed off due to friction.
All guages work in cockpit view.
There is a brand new 2018 Chevy Camaro ZL1 pacecar with new pacecar lights pattern with this mod.
The pacecar comes with 7 different textures for the various tracks. More textures will be
available for download at a later date.
There are 4 different types of tire textures. Firehawk, Indy500, Redwalls, and Standard. Standard
is the default.
There may be a Short Oval configuration option in the future.
 KNOWN ISSUES
This mod was modeled using artists concept photos and photos of testing at Indy in late 2017 and
early 2018. The nose is too narrow due to artist concept photos being incorrect. This part of
the car was started day one and all body parts were continued on from this. Changing the nose
would mean starting all over.
The damage model and drag flaps work as planned in .cup format, however when converted to .pta
these do not function properly. They do work but not as designed.
The maximum cars tested at one time was 34. Any more cars than this may result in poor graphics
or game crashing.
