RHR is currently the most successful American IndyCar driver with more wins than all other American drivers combined.

IndyCar driver Ryan Hunter-Reay talks to Road & Track about the technology behind the current IndyCar steering wheel and why the price of the part can cost up to $25,000. The video is a great overview of the gadgets available on the steering wheel, for example, Ryan discusses the paddles used for clutch control and the fact that their type of car doesn’t have power steering.
