McLaren-Honda unveils the New MCL32

Woking, United Kingdom, February 24, 2017 – McLaren-Honda unveiled its new machine, the McLaren-Honda MCL32, prior to its winter testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, for the upcoming 2017 FIA* Formula One (F1™) World Championship. The Honda RA617H, 1.6-litre V6 turbo engine with ERS, has been decreased the weight and lowered the centre of gravity to improve the balance of the car, while generating more output out of the ICE [internal combustion engine]. And the power unit will be fitted into the MCL32 for the 2017 season.

The MCL32 follows in the evolutionary footsteps of its two immediate predecessors, MP4-30 and MP4-31, but has been overhauled in every area as the design team has looked to capitalise on a series of new aerodynamic regulations introduced for 2017.

New Look for NHRA Pro Stock Camaro SS

Gen Six bodywork takes to the drag strip in 2017, chasing repeat Pro Stock title

INDIANAPOLIS – The Gen Six Chevrolet Pro Stock Camaro SS makes its public debut at the Performance Racing Industry trade show in Indianapolis on Thursday, Dec. 8.

The new model builds on the success of the championship-winning fifth-generation-based race car. It’s more athletic-looking and aerodynamically optimized bodywork draws its styling from the Gen Six Chevrolet Camaro SS.

“Our goal was to minimize aerodynamic drag within the NHRA guidelines and incorporate as many design cues from the production car,” said John Mack, Chevrolet Camaro exterior design manager. “The result is a sleeker and more aerodynamic Camaro SS.”

The new race car makes its competition debut this February in Pomona, Calif., at the kickoff event for the 2017 NHRA Mello Yellow Drag Racing Series.

Chevrolet Pro Stock Camaro drivers won 23 of 24 events in the 2016 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. Jason Line won eight events, capturing his third world title — and the third straight championship for Chevrolet. Runner-up Greg Anderson won eight events in a Camaro SS race car.

Track testing with the 2017 Pro Stock Camaro SS begins later this month.

In addition to the new Pro Stock Camaro SS, Chevrolet’s 2017 COPO program offers specialty race cars designed for NHRA’s Stock Eliminator classes, and earlier this fall Chevrolet announced a drag racing development program for production-based Camaro models.
