2016 Dallara DW12 (IR12) Mk. II – Honda Hunter-Reay

For 2016 season bodywork updates were issued by both manufacturers to their aerokits. Compared to the Chevrolet aero kit, the Honda kit saw numerous changes, with the front wing being altered from a stacked triple element, to a simpler dual element section, with a new endplate section introduced. In addition, new sidepods were introduced on the road course kit, while a new tyre ramp was introduced with it, and vents were added to the rear wing endplates. In response to the flipping incidents of Chevrolet powered cars at the 2015 Indianapolis 500, domed skids were reintroduced to the series. Zylon bodywork tethers were also added to the cars, to prevent loose bodywork from leaving a car, and striking another competitor, following the death of Justin Wilson, who was struck by loose bodywork.

For Andretti Autosport, the 2016 season turned out to be quite controversial. In the championship, the team’s drivers did not fight for victory either in the overall standings, or, as a rule, in individual races, but the only victory of the season fell on the most prestigious race – Alexander Rossi won the Indy 500. Ryan Hunter-Reay scored three podiums finishing 3rd at St. Petersburg, in the second race at Detroit, and at Pocono. He was 12th in the final point standings of the season.
