@Mikemat5150 Much as I’d like to see IndyCar back at Road America/Elkhart Lake, and as much as I have doubts about Qingdao, I’d rather they got to cash the cheque they were promised according to that article.
Of course if they could take the payment without a race (as F1 did with Bahrain last year) and still go to Road America, I’d be just as happy!
The last major single-seater race at Road America was Champ Car’s 2007 visit, emphatically won by Sebastien Bourdais. The year before that Katherine Legge – now his team mate at Dragon – survived this terrifying crash:
The layout doesn’t seem all that inspiring from an overhead, but I concur with AJ, it’s incredible to drive! The great thing is it tends to promote very good racing, too. Plenty of passing opportunities and some wonderful elevation change. Plus, the lead up to Canada Corner is a gorgeous blast through the woods with trees on both sides.
