IndyCar: Cosworth looking to make IndyCar return

According to Cosworth owner Kevin Kalkhoven, the British engine maker is looking at commercial opportunities to become a new engine supplier as early as 2015, joining Honda and Chevrolet on the IndyCar grid.

Kalkhoven has revealed that Cosworth has a fresh design waiting to be built. All the legendary engine company needs to go forward with its 2.2-liter turbocharged V6 IndyCar motor is a manufacturer to reach out and form a partnership.

“We have a Formula 1 V6 design, we have an IndyCar design, and our real issue is not so much our ability to build it as IndyCar’s ability to come to terms with a manufacturer,” said Kevin Kalkhoven.

“We’re in the process of building a new $40 million manufacturing plant in England that will be state-of-the-art, and we have a number of contracts for halo road car and racing engines.”
