On February 10 we unveiled the new DW12 IndyCar at the Canadian Motorsports Expo and, at the time of posting this article, the vehicle is proudly displayed as part of the Honda Canada pavilion at the Canadian International Auto Show. Participating in both events has not only been a wonderful opportunity to debut the new chassis in Canada, but also to interact with customers, race fans and car enthusiasts.
