    All 11 Chevrolet drivers will get ten-place penalties on the grid for Sunday’s race at Long Beach after engine changes:

    Chevrolet engines to be changed prior to Long Beach

    So that’s:

    Will Power
    Helio Castroneves
    James Hinchcliffe
    Rubens Barrichello
    Marco Andretti
    Ryan Hunter-Reay
    Ryan Briscoe
    JR Hildebrand
    EJ Viso
    Tony Kanaan
    Ed Carpenter



    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA wow…. I don’t really know how to respond to that



    Autosport said Bourdais as well. 12 drivers…



    @SteveMovieVoice Bourdais isn’t running a Chevy engine though, he’s running a Judd (from now on I’m no longer calling it a Lotus engine).



    @victor_ro I never said that the engine for Bourdais was a chevy. I do realise he is in the Lotus badged Judd, that has been playing up. I was just adding that it’s 12 drivers who will get penalties, not 11.

    Lotus are now a byword for joke, although Chevy are running them close in IndyCar with this debacle.



    And we thought Lotus/Judd were having trouble with reliability! Best chance so far for the Target cars to get pole, I guess.



    @welshf1 but the title of the post is ‘Grid Penalties for 11 Chevrolet drivers’. Whether anyone else has a grid penalty is neither here nor there in the context of this thread.

    @welshf1 In fairness to Chevy, they have won the opening two races, so they’re hardly a joke. This ain’t good though.

    Dixon for the win on Sunday? Pagenaud could be a bit of a dark horse too – podium maybe?


    Joel Holland

    Oh, and that Franchitti fella might be able to kick-start his season now too ;)



    I wonder what the issue was with the engine(s)?

    Better to be safe than sorry I guess!
