Honda's engine for the 2014 IndyCar Series, the third year of the turbocharged V6 era, is designated the HI14TT.


Honda and Chevrolet again will compete for the IndyCar Manufacturers' Championship in 2014.


Honda’s HI14TT is designed to meet INDYCAR’s 2014 technical regulations, calling for a twin-turbocharged engine with a maximum of six cylinders and 2.2-liters displacement.


Cylinder bore is restricted to a maximum of 95mm, while stroke is free.


Maximum engine revolutions per minute are a series-mandated 12,000 rpm.


In addition to using direct fuel injection and a pair of Borg-Warner turbochargers, other features of the HI14TT include “Drive-by-Wire” throttle technology and a series-spec McLaren Electronics Engine Control Unit (ECU).


An innovative Refueling Safety Interlock System, introduced by Honda for 2011, will continue to be used by both manufacturers. This system prevents the transmission from engaging while the refueling hose is attached to the car. It is designed to help prevent fires that have resulted from a car leaving its pit stall with the fuel hose still attached.


HPD engineers worked with INDYCAR transmission supplier XTRAC to introduce reverse-gear functionality within the ECU for 2010. This feature continues to be used by all teams in the series.







Dale Coyne is a true racer as he begins his 31st season as an owner/driver in open-wheel racing.


Starting in 1984 as a driver and owner, Coyne drove five seasons in the now defunct CART series where he was Rookie of the Year at both the Michigan and Pocono 500’s. In 1990, Coyne stepped out of the cockpit and turned his talents to the tutelage of several up-and-coming drivers. He is known in the open-wheel community for his ability to recruit and coach young drivers.


He was the only CART owner to serve on both the CART and USAC Boards. Coyne also was picked by his fellow owners to be the interim CEO of CART in 1994 and 1995.


In 1998, Coyne designed and built Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, IL. This state-of-the-art drag racing facility drew the attention of Indianapolis Motor Speedway CEO Tony George. George and Coyne, along with International Speedway Corporation, would go on to expand the facility by forming a partnership and building Chicagoland Speedway. Coyne served as president of the facility through its construction and opening season and along with George, served on its management committee until its eventual buyout by ISC in 2007.


Prior to making the transition to the IndyCar Series, the team competed in the Champ Car World Series. In 2007, driver Bruno Junqueira recorded back-to-back-to-back podium finishes (Zolder, Belgium, Assen, Netherlands and Surfers Paradise, Australia) on route to a seventh place finish for the year.


In 2008, the teams first year in the IndyCar Series, drivers Junqueira and Mario Moraes recorded five combined top-10 finishes and both drivers led several laps during the famed Indianapolis 500.


In July of 2009, the team celebrated its first win when Justin Wilson won at Watkins Glen. Wilson would go on to finish with seven top-10 finishes and ninth in the 2009 IndyCar Series point standings. On June 9, 2012, the team celebrated its second win and first on an oval when Justin Wilson won at Texas Motor Speedway. On June 1, 2013 the team earned its third win when Mike Conway dominated the Dual in Detroit Race #1, winning by 12.9 seconds. That morning he earned the first Pole for the team.


Dale Coyne Racing is based in Plainfield, IL, which is located about 40 miles southwest of downtown Chicago.
