The most ironic thing about IndyCar and one of the biggest reasons why it's being held back is that the series has too much political instability and too much on track stability.gixxer_drew wrote:I really wish we could get a real decision about this so everyone can stop holding their breath or developing stuff they know has the risk of being throw away. I anticipate a huge drop in lap times on the road courses and I think it gives the series credibility to be top tier performers.
That's a shame, you'll miss Will Power sucking immensely at it and losing the entire championship because of it LOL.MOWOG wrote:Since F1 moved to NBC, my wife and I have actually watched an IndyCar race or two. She likes seeing a woman driver being up near the sharp end of the field, but could care less about whether the chassis is ugly or whether it is oval ready. We wouldn't watch an oval race under any circumstances anyway, even if it featured Danica Patrick driving backwards while stark naked.
Great personality to boot as well! Simona's been doing well because this is actually the first year where she's in a proper team. The past 2 seasons she's been in the williams of IndyCar basically so she's still a little rough around the edges but she can really race unlike Danica.MOWOG wrote:
Personally, I enjoy watching Hinchcliffe race. I respect a driver who can climb into any car and be quick, as opposed to those one trick pony prima donnas in Formula One.
I think it's fine that IndyCar maintains some kind of oval heritage. I mean the current it's part of what makes indycar not a copy of European open wheel series.Sombrero wrote:http://auto-racing.speedtv.com/article/ ... -bad-idea/
I'm a little bit disapointed with this...
And much as it pains me to say so, it was very amateurish.This weekend had a double header race at Detroit.
On the surface, a correct statement. But almost all the mayhem happened on Sunday, while Saturday was much more crash-free. There is a reason, on Saturday the track was green and very low on traction. As well, the drivers did not feel any need to push hard, they had the next day to make up for any shortcomings. On Sunday it was do-or-die, the big names in Detroit were there, and the aggression level was much higher.strad wrote:And much as it pains me to say so, it was very amateurish.This weekend had a double header race at Detroit.
How many unforced errors?...How many first lap incidents?
