That depends on where you measure the speed and simply picking speeds from speed traps will not do. In the corners I would hazard a guess it would be somewhat different. On so called 'street courses, an entirely different kettle of fish.Pierce89 wrote:Also to Seg: to paraphrase, you said " At the speed indycars are traveling they have a lot more energy than Nascars". That's essentially only true in the center of the corner. I saw Nascars over 210 mph plenty of times this season.
A NASCAR car to car comparison is not apt. What is more apt is the aerodynamic nature of oval racing. Look at the Daytona Prototypes. The nature of ovals (or just very high banked corners with extreme speeds) means that any slight change in aerodynamics can have very very catastrophic effects on a car. This is a picture of a daytona prototype that flipped wildly while testing at the Daytona 24hr road course just a few months ago.munudeges wrote:Doing a NASCAR comparison doesn't help the argument.
Money. IndyCar has a large sanctioning fee that street course venues are fine paying. They also tend to draw the biggest crowds at Indy. The Sao Paolo race was sold out.WilliamsF1 wrote:Why does indy have so many street races? They are expensive and safety is always compramised.
It has, it doesn't want to be an American GP2. There's no one "holy way" to build an open wheeler and the European mindset of open wheel design is certainly not anywhere near "the best" way as the racing has proven recently.munudeges wrote:
Indycars need to decide what they want to be.
Sushant008 wrote:@lizardfolk Just saw your Youtube video. I'm so sorry mate . This is pathetic. But I just beg you please don't stop uploading IndyCar Race videos [-o< . There is absolutely no coverage in my country, the only way I can follow IndyCar is you and the same can be said for almost every other follower of yours. Just use another channel like IndySnakeV2 or even use Dailymotion. Hoping for the best mate. Good luck!
Anybody know?ChrisF1 wrote:BTSport and ESPN are supposed to be doing the UK Coverage this year, but there is nothing listed on any channel according to my Virgin media box.
I go away on holiday in 8 hours and need to set the recording - anybody know anything?
