Mecachrome expanding engine business?
The engineering firm Mecachrome, last seen in F1 with their Renault-based Supertec engines, has been trying to drum up interest of late in an IRL engine they plan to build. Representatives from the French company have been attending IRL events in the hope of selling the engine to a maufacturer.
Our spies tell us the company is also in talks with the Skip Barber Racing School to provide a suitable engine platform for their next generation carbon chassis school and race series cars, which would be branded by a manufacturer. Tatuus and '07 Champ car builders Elan technologies are in the running to produce the modular concept chassis.
