IndyCar has been searching for a new way of cockpit protection since the late Justin Wilson’s death in 2015. There have been a few different attempts since then and not all have worked, so what do you do? Keep trying new ways for a solution.

  On Tuesday it was announced that IndyCar juice out a new different type of cockpit protection for not only testing, but actual use in race condiotions starting with a series test on April 24th at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, with the first race featuring the new device being nonother than the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500. 

 "Safety is a never ending persuit, and this is IndyCar's latest step in the evolution, said IndyCar President Jay Frye. "There are more details to come about the phases to follow." 

  The new device will be a little slot that sticks up about 3 inches from the edge of the cockpit and is about three quarters of an inch thick. 

 There had been previous tests with a windscreen style device at Phoenix International Raceway and the Indianaplois Motor Speedway with Scott Dixon and Josef Newgarden, both had reported no issues and the windscreen was looking like it was on its way. But rumors of further testing said to have proved that it would not be the ideal protection device when it was to accidents involving making any contact with the crash wall, rahter than being struck by debris.
