CART Renders

A full field of cars from the 1998 CART season from chassis manufacturers Reynard, Swift, Penske and Lola.

The class of the 1998 field, the Reynard 98I was the benchmark the other manufacturers aspired to. It won both championships in the hands of Alex Zanardi and Target Chip Ganassi Racing, with Zanardi’s teammate and 1996 Champion Jimmy Vasser taking second in the driver’s championship. 18 out of the 19 races on the 1998 calendar were won by the Reynard chassis.

Swift’s 009c chassis represented the latest iteration of the San Clemente, CA manufacturer’s CART chassis. Newman-Haas and Della Penna ran three examples between them, all powered by turbocharged 2.65L Ford Cosworth V8s.

The Penske PC27: The final open wheel car of Penske’s own design before they switched to Lola and later Reynard and Dallara chassis.

Lola’s all-new-for-98 T98/00 was only campaigned by one team; Davis racing ran a sole car for Arnd Meier with limited success. However, the car formed the basis for development for all of Lola’s Champ Cars until their final season of competition in the 2006 Champ Car World Series.

Speedway and Super Speedway graphical aero configurations were also created for all chassis to complement the full road course packages, along with eleven steering wheels and high detail cockpits.
