2014 IndyCar Grand Prix of Houston (Double Header)

It’s Race Weekend for IndyCar after two-week break! A double header around the 1.6 mile reliant park street course. Last year It was a mad,entertaining race with full of crashes. Not my favourite race track but still hoping for a good weekend.

IIRC, 90% of the trouble was related to stalled cars. Sato always finds a way to meet the wall though :p24th June 2014, 18:39 at 6:39 pm #264373Keith CollantineKeymaster
Not hugely looking forward to this one after Franchitti’s injuries last year, plus I’m growing less and less fond of the double headers. I’ll still be watching but I hope they wean themselves off these two-race weekends eventually.
I would imagine Houston in late June is pretty hot as well! Tough one for the drivers – especially having to do two races back-to-back.25th June 2014, 13:41 at 1:41 pm #264404

@KeithCollantine – numerous changes have been made to the track and its surroundings, that said I would like Shell to take their money to another venue. Their HQ is nearby though and the contract runs through 2017…29th June 2014, 6:14 at 6:14 am #264828

Not sure what Rahal was doing on the last restart. Just seemed to mistime it, really badly. I was hoping for a last-lap dash, wanted to see what Montoya had for him. Glad for the rookie though.29th June 2014, 10:21 at 10:21 am #264835Magnificent GeoffreyParticipant
A lot of fairly amateurish driving in that highlights clip…
Seemed yesterday was a pretty good day for Colombia, overall.29th June 2014, 13:54 at 1:54 pm #264840
Played out like the 2003 Brazilian GP.29th June 2014, 21:43 at 9:43 pm #264866Iestyn DaviesParticipant
Is it fair to say that Rahal is the Maldonado of Indycar?
…or more Max Chilton?29th June 2014, 23:12 at 11:12 pm #264876JackySteegParticipant
Awesome race! Awesome result too, I love seeing Schmidt and Herta’s teams doing so well. Loved the raw racing toward the end, although there were a few examples of rather amateurish driving. Castroneves has been racing for far too long to be chopping other drivers in the braking zone…30th June 2014, 8:34 at 8:34 am #264882Keith CollantineKeymaster
@JackySteeg Agree 100% on Castroneves, and it was excruciating watching him try to defend that move while staring down the barrel of the camera. You cannot move like that in a braking zone, and of course he should have been aware Bourdais was close.
A good race though, a deserved win for Pagenaud and some hugely impressive driving by Hawksworth. Glad he finally got a podium to show for what has been an excellent rookie campaign so far.30th June 2014, 10:50 at 10:50 am #264892
