Oh, and Pastor Maldonado was an interested visitor to the paddock…
It’ll be interesting to see what he can cause from there. If he can find sufficient funds I’m pretty sure he could be at Sauber next year.
Looking at the qualifying results from Iowa today it’s pretty obvious which engine and aero combination you want to have:
1. Simon Pagenaud, Penske, Chevrolet – 185.855mph
2. Josef Newgarden, Carpenter, Chevrolet – 185.639mph
3. Helio Castroneves, Penske, Chevrolet – 185.433mph
4. Max Chilton, Ganassi, Chevrolet – 185.419mph
5. Charlie Kimball,…[Read more]
The Light-Rail was built to help accommodate the upcoming 2018 Commonwealth Games, an even runs directly beside the track after the first chicane.
On Google Maps the light rail isn’t available yet, this is the revised layout however: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6897131
It’s probably worth pointing out, for those who don’t know, that they cannot run the full track any more. A couple of years after IndyCar left, they decided to build a light rail track, which runs down Surfer’s Paradise Boulevard (the road that the track ran down from the exit of the first chicane all the way down to Turn 3 (the first non-chicane…[Read more]

Was just about to post.
It’s a win-win except for TV audience and/or attendance – NASCAR has probably one of its biggest and most successful events on that weekend, the Southern 500 in Darlington. If there’s one oval I like and a track of that mold which is as revered as The Glen among the road courses, it’s Darlington.
I hope the retro feeling…[Read more]

The Watkins Glen race has been confirmed. There were rumours a multi-year deal was in the offing but a 2016 race is all that’s been confirmed for now:
IndyCar announced today that the Verizon IndyCar Series will return to Watkins Glen International for an event on Sept. 1-4. Tickets for the Labor Day weekend event – which will also feature Indy…

A top-category open-wheeler on The Glen is stupid fast, especially with the recent repave – and that’s not a complaint either. The Glen is one of the top 5 best race tracks in the world.

Reminds me of the Champ Car GP of Korea that was attempted three times from 2004-06 and failed each time. Thanks OWRS.

I don’t understand* why they don’t look at a return to Surfers Paradise. I think they would be welcomed back with open arms (it was a great event, and there’s also Queenslander Will Power who is at the top of his game in the series), and while the original circuit is sadly no longer an option, the current shortened circuit is still an awesome…[Read more]

With the Boston race cancelled it now seems IndyCar will go to Watkins Glen instead:

No complaints here about that, it’s a belting circuit. However the possibility of a post-season non-championship race in China has ‘I’ll believe it when I see it’ written all over…[Read more]
Well, this makes me sad. I really love IndyCar but they seem to be having a tough time at the moment.
Personally, I hope they put something together at Milwaukee. OK, not exactly in same area, but it’s a historic track (older than Indianapolis by 6 years!) that has also produced great oval racing in IndyCar in the recent past. Unfortunately, it…[Read more]
This is my order if the grid stays the same
7. Celis jr
Also it’s Matevos too. But my tip for the title: if Vaxiviere, it’s definitely Egor Orudzhev
