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.
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.
@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…
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…
@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.
