    I think I remember seeing somewhere that Hinch’s scheme is temporary and will be redesigned for the season, even though it doesn’t need to be.

    Saw that too. Hopefully it's even better because that is hard to top.

    I'll be curious what they do to Wickens' car and what the sponsor is.

    I feel like I might be the only who isn't in love with Hinch's testing livery. Something about the lines on top of the sidepods and the flames just doesn't do it for me. The Penske test mule looks good, though.

    Power tweeted me back and said 2 is just the test number/livery, nobody is running it.

    that little pic of Hinch's car in speedway trim is the coolest one yet I've seen of the new car- awesome!

    Andretti Autosport traditionally has very good paint schemes! i can't wait to see what they do with an attractive car

    Although the unsponsored schemes that Rossi and Marco have run in recent years have been downright hideous.

    I'm not sure burnt sienna and teal really work together, but hey, 2018 car, woo!

    I like it.

    For me, any race car that is neither black-and-red, white-and-red, nor white-and-blue is a winner at this point. However, I really, really wish Andretti would get rid of the stupid chrome nose already.

    I can't wait to see the Menards, ABC Supply and NAPA liveries.

    Veach's car??? At least the body kit is pleasing the the eye.

    Also, nice to see it appears the wicker bill on the nose wont screw up all the decal application on the diecast. I was worried about that.
    Just wait 'till next year!

    pardon me if this has already been posted elsewhere, but is it confirmed that the numbers will be on the tiny rear wings? I was hoping that the numbers would go right in front of the rear tires like some of the designs i have seen here on TrackForum from fans with their own designs.

    Having said that i happen to like Veach's livery, i think it looks good.

    The comments I've seen from IndyCar folks have been that the support in front of the rear tires is too valuable as sponsor space to be used for numbers. I think it's placing short term financial gain in front of long term brand recognition for their drivers, but I've come to terms with it.

    I asked Cavin & Kevin a few weeks ago and referred them to an example of the number on the tire ramp. Cavin confirmed that the number will be on the endplates.

    Idiots, total idiots. So like in the example most of the ramps will be empty because there are no sponsors and the fans can’t see the numbers. Only thing that the old IRL did right for the NASCAR crowd.

    It would be helpful if Indycar would tell teams that if they don't place a sponsor on the rear wheel ramp, then they have to put the number there (at least in speedway trim). Then maybe fans and series officials would be better positioned to pressure other teams to follow suit.

    I don't think they want something that isn't uniform for all cars.

    Why did both CART and the IRL switch from engine covers to rear wings for the speedways in the early 00s?

    The livery is more important to driver I.D. than the number.

    I don't think the number placement matters much. Cars are recognized as much by the paint scheme as anything else, especially at speed. I am probably part of a small minority who make it a point to know all the drivers, their numbers, teams with whom they run, sponsors, liveries, etc.
