An open-wheel what-if: The sound of the Panoz DP01 at IMS (VIDEO)

In 2008, IndyCar absorbed the remaining Champ Car assets, and the mergification of North American open-wheel racing was complete.

What didn’t come along was the Panoz DP01 chassis that served during the 2007 Champ Car season.

Thanks to the vintage race at IMS last weekend, we now have visuals – and more importantly, audio – of the turbocharged Panoz-Cosworth at IMS.

Yes, it’s only a 12-second long clip, but it offers a glorious, tantalizing “what if” prospect if these cars could have been carried over.

Even now… equivalency formulas, anyone?

    Now THAT’s a real race car.
