Love seeing the IndyCars in action on this undulating track. Here’s today’s practice:

2012 Lights champion and Mazda factory driver Tristan Vautier also took on test driver duties. Further sessions are scheduled at Mid-Ohio next month.

@Joey-Poey Many Indycar drivers race in other series over the course of a season. Bourdais and Power have run up front in V8 Supercars before (and that’s hardly a field of hacks), not to mention the amount of wins guys like Conway and Pagenaud have racked up in LMPs. Having the skill set to jump into tintops part-time and win almost immediately…[Read more]

You guys have no idea. $40 for infield passes to the Indy 500. One of the most historically important races in the world and you can make a day trip of it for less than the cost of a big screen TV (if you live close enough). I’ve been to Mid Ohio before and it’s a great track that puts on awesome racing. I went when ALMS last raced there and saw…[Read more]

Didn’t realise they start on the back-straight at Mid-Ohio. But those entry fees are great! £40 for the weekend!

I like this track. Found an old on-board video of it-
Hoping for a good one.

“It feels pretty awesome,” Hawksworth said. “It was a lot of fun. We had a great battle with Bruno (Junqueira) and ended up with an RSR 1-2. We were both slicing through the traffic. I just got my chance and I took it.

The loss of the network (ABC) deal in 2008 (that used to cover the whole schedule) didn’t help. F1 gets low ratings on NBCSN as well, only NHL hockey tends to draw consistently well on that channel.
The ratings for ABC coverage have been good, even Indy 500 qualifying had north of 1 million viewers.
IndyCar’s long path to any kind of serious popularity remains its greatest challenge, six years on from reunification.
The condensing of the 2014 schedule into an intense burst of races across five months was partly done to increase its impact, and this note in press release is a sign it may have had a positive effect.
It’s a clear sign the…[Read more]

Indycar doesn’t have Bernie-style sanction fees, for one thing :p no surprise that Mid-Ohio’s attendance is historically good.
Despite the obvious jokes, no doubt to be repeated when Nelson brings out his first safety car, I think he’ll do quite well in Formula E..
@craig-o Probably a few will in time, but they might find it hard going, unless some of the older drivers are losing their speed.

$60 for the whole weekend with a paddock pass for $20!? That’s not bad at all given the number of support races there. I’m looking forward to seeing how RHR bounces back after yet another poor weekend. I’m also looking to see whether Bourdais or Conway can continue to upset the frontrunners.

Considering how composed Montoya looked in the wet at Barber, I did not expect to see him be the first to stuff it in the wall when it rained. The other Colombians in the field had a poor day as well, especially Huertas being in the middle of that melee near the end.
Poor weekend for Hunter-Reay too, he lost a lot of ground with the mistake in…[Read more]
