hello all,
i just wonder, since indy car look so popular at america, is it so few available in hot wheels die cast?
i found from here Category:Indy Cars | Hot Wheels Wiki | Fandom powered by Wikia , only 8 model available. well actually 7, 1 is toon model
the latest is at multipack exclusive on 2016
is it too costly of license to make it as mainline in card?

There were a couple of Indy car series a few years ago.
I can't recall the years.
They weren't big sellers, I remember seeing them at 5 Below stores.
If you Google "Hot Wheels Indy Car Series", you should find something I bet.

I think that Greenlight has most of the "rights" to Indy cars.

Hot Wheels did do a racing series a few years back that included Indy cars. I think I found both of these at Big Lots.

Wasn't there one series that had a picture of the driver's face on the card as well?

They originally didn't move well at the big box stores, so they got shipped them off to Big lots and 5 Below.

You're not talking about the one from the Mainline a few years back are you?
That one didn't, the other ones I don't know about because I wasn't interested in those.

I think those were Racing Champion cars, Hot Wheels did some in the Pro Circuit Series.



Another 1 from the IZOD cars series...

No, I wasnt. I remember the mainline one had the Union Jack as the card face right?

I have 3 of the 4 Grand Prix Red Lines, which are from 1969.


1969 Hot Wheels (6262) Grand Prix Lotus Turbine


1969 Hot Wheels (6263) Grand Prix Indy Eagle


1969 Hot Wheels (6265) Grand Prix Shelby Turbine

You are correct about it having the Union Jack on the card.
Nice Redlines by the way.

Found this on the internet...

"...Then thereís the fact that F1 just isnít as popular in the US as it is everywhere else, which likely discourages young Americans from participating. Yes, F1 is in Austin and is being broadcast live on the NBC Sports network, but even the well-rated broadcasts are insignificant compared to the juggernaut that is NASCAR, for example."

Hot Wheels tried to do NASCAR for a while and it didn't work... maybe the same with Indy car models. I guess that's why all the posts of cars here are from older series that went away
