Brian Wayne shares photos and video from February 27 IndyCar test at Sebring


As teams begin the final round of preparations before their season-opener, a large portion of the Verizon IndyCar Series grid was on-track at Sebring International Raceway on Tuesday, February 27.  Somewhat of a comparable circuit to the streets of St. Petersburg that the series will race on during the March 9-11 event weekend, drivers were pushing the limit.

Brian Wayne, also known as Lanky Turtle on social media networks (and a friend of, was on hand to take some incredible photos and compile a video of various IndyCar Series pilots reaching the edge of that limit in the new UAK-18 Indy car.

Check out some of the wonderful images and video work that Brian captured while roaming the historic Sebring circuit yesterday, including James Hinchcliffe’s spin which damaged one of those coveted universal aero kit front wings.

  1. Small correction: the Wickens/Rossi wreck was not on a “GWC attempt. Indycar does not do that and will finish on a yellow flag if need be. It was on a restart with one lap to go. I think the new car is awesome. The race was entertaining and very competitive. How much it will remain so as the crews and drivers become accustomed to the aero kit remains to be seen, but it certainly is a car that is more racy and has more equality between engines.
