In the wake of the ICONIC Committee members announcement last week, a group put together to recommend the new 2012 formula to the Indy Racing League CEO Randy Bernard, another Committee has been formed. Effective immediately, the IRL has launched a "Technical Review Committee" which features league and team representatives who will hold weekly meetings to discuss and review all technical proposals submitted to the IZOD IndyCar Series. The committee members will then make a recommendation to the President of Competition and Racing Operations for the IRL, Brian Barnhart, who will make the final decision. All of the decisions made by Barnhart, as well as the proposals to the committee will be posted to a participant-only website, giving each team equal access to the rule interpretation information.
"Given the overwhelming positive response to the formation of the ICONIC Advisory Committee in the search for our next-generation car, we have decided to create a similar process for all technical proposals presented to the league that will allow discussion in a more transparent forum," - Brian Barnhart
