Tony Cotman, 42, has vacated his post as Indy Racing League vice president of competition. The much-respected Cotman will
continue to consult for the open-wheel series, but will no longer work for the IRL full time.
Instead, Cotman has decided to launch his own enterprise, NZR Consulting, where he will design and build racetracks. Cotman said with the IRL moving to more road and street racing, this is the perfect time to start the firm.
Cotman was hired by former IRL boss Tony George in 2008 after spending four years overseeing racing for the Champ Car series.
Currently, Cotman is spending most of his time in Brazil helping design the course for the IRL’s March 14 race in San Paulo.
