On Wednesday three NASCAR-participating manufacturers will unveil the final version of their new “Next Gen” brand which will be the basis for its Cup Series platforms from the 2022 season. Camry, Mustang and Camaro all models have their own design, but in all of them the series and engineers are said to be pursuing “features that reduce reliability of aerodynamics and increase interest in automotive design.”
This covers the same standard shape, integrated equipment, design, large wheels and a height of 2 cm from the ground than the previous ones. It should also be affordable for teams to operate as they will require fewer vehicles per driver, as they are built to allow one vehicle to operate at different speeds.
But eventually a major change could come down, as NASCAR sees a change in hybrid power, following the Formula 1 use of hybrid engines for several years. The goal is to make a car that NASCAR said it will be “future proof” to make this change as easy as possible.
President Steve Phelps said: “The next car will definitely have a chance, if we decide to go for the hybrid electric vehicle or hybrid engine, that the Next Gen car has a chance to crash the engine there. … It could be ’24. “There is also speculation as to whether it could work on an electric motor or not, but that potential does not go far enough.
Other changes fans have noticed in the Next Types include larger tires, larger brakes, a stand-alone rear suspension and a front-facing camera to help drivers see their rear view. The latter is important because of the new waves under the roof. The new vehicles have also enabled advertisers to have car cameras in every vehicle in the race, as NASCAR Senior VP for newcomer John Probst said. “
