Yes, an excellent race at a track that’s very hard to overtake!
Too bad the TV audio isn’t utilized on the video highlights. They use the IndyCar radio audio mixed with the TV video and the narration doesn’t always match the camera selection.
I must say I’ve become a fan of the rear bumper as it has eliminated needless rear tire punctures, and seems to have greatly reduced damage to front wings. They did a bit of bumping yesterday and the only car I saw with some front wing damage was Marcos.
Yeah, this track has a history of having very few places to overtake. And there were some moves made (successfully) in multiple places I never thought possible! It looks like if anything, the new cars are very much promoting passing (even with the new blocking rules). Let’s hope this trend continues because if so, it’ll be one helluva season.
That was the first Indy Car race I sat down and watched properly and I wasn’t disappointed. I was on the edge of my seat, taking it all in. Once names started sticking I could relate to it a little more.
Did Dixon really lose it because of his issue in the pits? It seemed to me that Power would have streamed past him anyway.
