    If you could decide the IndyCar calendar, what would it look like?

    Here’s my (fairly realistic) effort:

    1. 24th March – St Petersburg (Street)
    2. 7th April – Barber Motorsport Park (Road)
    3. 21st April – Long Beach (Street)
    4. 5th May – Laguna Seca (Road)
    5. 26th May – Indianapolis 500 (Oval)
    6. 9th June – Milwaukee (Oval)
    7. 16th June – Iowa (Oval)
    8. 30th June – Road America (Road)
    9. 7th July – Pocono (Oval)
    10. 21st July – Mont-Tremblant or Mosport (Road)
    11. 4th August – Mid-Ohio (Road)
    12. 25th August – Sonoma (Road)
    13. 8th September – Rockingham, UK (Oval)
    14. 15th September – Imola (Road)
    15. 6th October – Mexico City (Road)
    16. 19th October – Auto Club Speedway (Oval)

    @bmwf1 Only 16 races? this year they have 19. A 20 race schedule is better imo as most of the races are held in one country USA. I would like add Watkins glen, COTA, Road Atlanta and a race in Japan/Australia to your calendar.

    Sixteen tracks though. Three are doubleheaders.

    I would rather add new tracks to the schedule than have doubleheaders on the existing ones, and also get rid of these month long breaks between two races. Waiting till 5th of October for next race now :(

    Here we go. I applied it to 2014:

    30.03 – Miami Bayfront Park Street Circuit (Street)
    06.04 – Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca (Road)
    20.04 – Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, Mexico (Road)
    04.05 – Twin Ring Motegi, Japan (Oval)
    18.05 – Watkins Glen International (Road)
    25.05 – Indianapolis Motor Speedway (Oval)
    08.06 – Milwaukee Mile (Oval)
    15.06 – Pocono Raceway (Oval)
    29.06 – Belle Isle, Detroit (Street)
    13.07 – Mount Panorama Circuit, Bathurst (Road)
    27.07 – Exhibition Place, Toronto, Canada (Street)
    03.08 – Cleveland Burke Lakefront Airport (Street)
    17.08 – Brands Hatch, UK (Road)
    24.08 – Autodromo Nationale Monza, Italy (Road)
    07.09 – Road America, Elkhart Lake (Road)
    14.09 – Daytona International Speedway (Oval)
    28.09 – Streets of Baltimore (Street)
    12.10 – Sonoma Raceway (Road)
    19.10 – Texas World Speedway (Oval)
    02.11 – Surfers Paradise Street Circuit, Australia (Street)
    16.11 – Streets of Long Beach (Street)

    21 race calendar – Oval – 6, Street – 7, Road – 8
    I stand by my opinion that IndyCar should end the season with a reputable street race instead an oval race with 3/4 of the grandstands empty.
