Developments at Art Center, January/February 1982 issue: This term advanced transportation design majors are at work on a unique project, jointly sponsored by General Motors and PPG Industries, Inc., to design a pace car for the CART (Championship Auto Racing Teams) Indy Car World Series. As in a professional design studio, the individual students will initially generate their own concepts, but the class will end by working as a team to perfect one final design selected by the sponsors. This pace car, which will be fabricated in Detroit over a 1982 Camaro Z-28 chassis from the specifications submitted by the students, is destined to serve as a traffic control and track inspection vehicle during the 1983 season, as well as a display vehicle for promotional purposes before and after races. The principal supervisors of the project are Jerry Palmer, chief designer for the Camaro/Corvette studio at General Motors, and Jack Schwartz, a color development designer at PPG Industries, which sponsors the CART Indy Car World Series. The instructors are Keith Teter and Richard Hutting.
