charliex commented on the post, Newgarden resists Dixon to open IndyCar season with win 2 years, 7 months ago
Exactly! In the past, this race had been plagued by multiple crashes. The cars were spaced further apart than before, probably due to the standardized road racing aero parts but there were more riskier passes […]

One that’s not on the list: Pikes Peak Hill Climb, the race to the clouds.

Let’s kick that can a little further down the road.
I want to take the counter-point to the schedule change as I am an American F1 fan and live further south of COTA in San Antonio. Right or wrong, I think everyone inside the paddock wants F1 to prosper in the US. […]

Put a call out to Indycars for assistance. They do it all the time.
It will never happen at least for the Monster Cup series. There is a deep seeded rivalry between COTA and NASCAR’s state venue Texas Motor Speedway which continues to complain about the USGP’s date interfering […]

I recall many, many years ago Hankook made a serious bid to replace Firestone in Indycars when it was CART.

When I read the headline, I prepared myself for another article screaming for something like the halo for Indycars. While that issue comes up, I am in complete agreement with the author about the incredible high […]

The 2003 car was named the F2003GA, GA for Gianni Agnelli.
If the constructor points system is overhauled, 1-car teams may be a pretty good idea. You might see other teams take the plunge in F1(coupled with some other cost cutting moves). F1 should really think hard on […]
Wait till they show up at the Circuit Of The Americas later this season. The MotoGP riders were complaining vehemently about the re-surfacing done there to smooth out bumps caused by the F1 cars. Some didn’t […]
Pick any road course in the US and none of them will invest the money to upgrade their facilities to FIA standards. And there is little chance of F1 ever returning to Indianapolis Motor Speedway. So that only […]
I have been to Miami a few times and it’s all right to visit as a tourist but not live there. As sports goes in that city, it’s almost a desert. Away from the Miami Dolphins and University of Miami football […]

Don’t change the track, change the venue. Take it back to Adelaide.

Yes, let’s go back to Adelaide!
NBCSN also had badly-timed commercial breaks but, usually, their commentators filled in the gaps. But for ESPN, last night’s broadcast was a sign of things to come from the House Of The Mouse(Disney). I almost […]
