IndyCar teams will no longer be penalised for engine failures during certain testing situations after the series announced a new addition to its regulations.
Under the new rule 15.5.8, an engine that fails during a team test, rookie test, manufacturer test or straight line test may be replaced by another engine from the pool without penalty.
Failures that occur at open tests at Pocono, Mid-Ohio or Sonoma will still be subject to the standard penalty for unapproved engine changes.
Open tests are scheduled for July 4 at Pocono, July 31 at Mid-Ohio and August 21 at Sonoma.
