  • Eliseo Salazar Update N° 4

    Eliseo talking about the engine:

    In the following days we will see the new car, along with the physical part. ­

    What seems to him that it has been chosen to use Chevrolet motors for this year? ­

    Excelentt. It was demonstrated at the end of the previous season that if we were located in the fifth position, it was by fault of the motors.

    About several races that we were leading failed to us, and by the same we thought that he would be determining to project the mechanical participation of the next year with new and better than Chevrolet certainly it offers to us. ­

    Where will prove the car?

    In the circuit of Miami and in the oval of Phoenix, Arizona, that are ideal to testing resistance and speed. ­

    Do you believe that could win the Indy Racing League?

    Yes. In the 2002 I go by title.

    Cheers!!!

    Indy in the Paseo Ahumada
    By Eliseo Salazar

    Today at noon we will present the colors whereupon we will participate in this season 2002 of the Indy Racing League.

    It will be in total Paseo Ahumada, so that all our fans can see the surprise who we have prepared with great enthusiasm for this year of the category, that begins next the 2 of March in the oval of Miami.

    To the change of image in the painting of the vehicle a significant modification in the motor is added, since as of this season we will use power plants Chevrolet.

    The greater automobile factory of the world has signed a contract with A. J. Foyt, the owner of my Team, so that this he is one of the four official equipment of the mark of the humita necktie.

    Another interesting technical aspect will be the limitation in the number of games of tires that will be able to be used in the course of the season.

    This, with the objective to maintain the parity mechanical of the Indy, since the entrance of powerful equipment - like team Penske- with budgets of tens of millions of dollars, it puts in danger that stability in the yield of the single-seaters.

    Each car will be able to use a maximum of 183 games of tires Firestone Fire Hawk in the season, being 138 of them for the fifteen races, fifteen for open tests (tests opened to all competitor) and thirty games for private tests.

    This last limitation is excellent, since Teams that they have budgets limitless for development in track will have top of 120 tires Firestone for those effects and here it is important to mention that these rubbers are so sophisticatedly designed, that its More efficiency is planned for which lasts a fuel pool, reason why loses sense to prove small modifications in the car when that limit has gone.

    In summary, when people ask to us how many tires we occupied in the year, now we have the exact answer: 730 units Firestone Fire Hawk.

    Returning to the one from the presentation of today, fulfilled already that proceeding I will travel today same at night to the United States to restore to me and to prove there in track at the beginning of February.

    In the physicist, I will continue training this year with Carmichael Training Systems, with those who I obtained important progresses the last season.

    With regard to the strong requirements in this aspect, in these cars that circulate permanently to more than 200 kilometers per hour, reviewing Internet I found declarations of the English pilot Johnny Herbert, that has won in many disciplines of motoring, including Formula 1.

    The English, which there is been proving a car of the Indy Racing League, declared that the required concentration to handle in an oval is, in certain aspects, more demanding than in Formula 1, because the races of the Indy are longer and at a much more high speed.

    Herbert continued: In addition it becomes more difficult, because you are passing cars permanently during the race. About my experience in tests the proximity does not worry to me about the walls, but we do not forget that still I have not beaten to him to any.

    Perhaps then I will change of opinion.

    Wise words, Johnny.

    In a bath of Indianapolis there is bordering that says: The pilots of the Indy divide themselves in two, those that already beat to him to the wall to 350 kilometers per hour and those that are going to him to beat sooner or later.

    Need more??
    Cheers!!!

        quote by Cristal Fan...Excelentt. It was demonstrated at the end of the previous season that if we were located in the fifth position, it was by fault of the motors.

        I enjoy and respect your enthusiasm...BUT...It might have also been the driving over the top of dismore's foot box at 215 mph that also had an effect on the final positions.

        "There's no doubt he (Herta) spun on purpose," said Dan Wheldon, …one of the Andretti Green Racing mechanics confessed he was "ashamed" that his team resorted to those tactics.

          'The greater automobile factory of the world has signed a contract with A. J. Foyt, the owner of my Team, so that this he is one of the four official equipment of the mark of the humita necktie."

          Does this mean that Chevy will supply Foyt...if so, are we getting close to CART like leasing and or suppliers...

            I think your reading too much into that qoute, things tend to get lost in translation. I believe it means they are running the chevy motor and maybe switched builders those they hope for improvement.

            Is it May yet ?

                Will you now change your forum name to "BANK OF CHILE FAN"?

                That is a good question regarding Foyt.

                  My guess it was a courtesy to Elieso, besides A J had a birthday today and needed his strength to gulp down a tenderloin

                          Beech in the 14 car.Remember when AJ put Donnie in the pits "attending" the last race.

                          Foyt is a man of word.

                          What is I, I know it clearly. Never, never I will let myself intimidate by a American, a German or a Japanese. I prefer to finish in the wall. Eliseo Salazar.

                              This is a commentary made by Eliseo after fighting itself with the Chilean press, after the crash with Mark Dismore...

                              Only for Chile...
