Can I just point out how unwatchable American motorsport is? ads so damn constantly… I always bang on about it when I watch the big races (both 500s), but come on… really… Food, food, pick up truck, more food, insurance…
“We’ll return to this commercials, after this motorsport break”.
Winning a race seems oh so random at NASCAR anyway that it’d feel deeply unfair to that lucky guy being given a chance to snatch the championship because he got lucky in the later part of the season.
The chase cup thing has been implemented in Argentina aswell and oh boy it sucks bad ! championships are all-year affairs, a long endurance of races. Why the heck does the championship need to start again in the latter part of the year?
I’d love to enter but the dates couldn’t have been any worse for me. Half the time I won’t be available :(
Kudos to Maldonado for ending this nonsense of avoiding the 13 !
@keithcollantine maybe… but they could just ship the Citroen for him. They’ve been testing in Abu Dhabi the past few days. It’s a huge difference between the two cars anyway…
That’s cool ! for me the Super Touring era was the essence of racing. I’m very much into touring cars and those were the best of the lot, by a long way. I’ll be watching that, for sure !
It’s not a driver’s championship anyway. All eyes should be focused on the cars.
It’s far from ideal, but for a very first season, from the total unknown, maybe all those gimmicks are not bad. I mean, street racing: not ideal in terms of motorsport, but in terms of promotion way better than racetracks. Twitterboost: it’s the opposite of ideal, but it’s all about promotion… they need that for a first year, even if we don’t like it.
or 010… with the 1 being a longer than the other numbers… you get the picture
only 2 even numbers. Wonder if that trend is going to continue…
not that it means much, but it’s just interesting :)
@journeyer even if I don’t like him, he’s very good. He’s super competitive in touring cars too, and he’s been racing very sucessfully in our touring car series here.
You heard it here first
Yeah, exactly, Accel/braking starts in April, Cornering in May and Vertical oscillations in October.
I was terribly excited about those courses, even if, to my dispair given that I’m now on Uni holidays until April and I’d have loads of time to kill til then, the courses start at a tricky part of the year for me.
But still ! I’m certainly looking forward to it all !
More to the point, Lopez has just been stripped from his TRV6 title so unfairly that I suppose he’d love to get out of here as soon as possible…
and he really is travelling to Paris right now…
Huge rumours that Lopez really is leaving to compete full on with Citroen. Neil Hudson has been tweeting all week about it.
