Lyria I think you have Indycar on skysport 3.


Anyway while folks in F1 are on vacation Indycar is racing...last race was in New Hampshire Motor Speedway – Loudon and there was some controversy :twisted: to say at least, here are some reports put chronologically to make things clearer, I hope :hihi:

Listen, it was hard enough to drive those heavy old cars back then under normal circumstances, but with a crazed monkey clawing you at the same time, it becomes nearly impossible! http://www.timflock.com/jocko.htm

Great post. Thanks, I missed that race as I've been a little busy. IRL still has a tendency to devolve into a crash and yellow flag fest. This looks like one of them. If I was Will Power's boss, I would be having a talk with him. On the other hand, I am rooting for Dario.

Here's nice insight in new 2012 car.
http://auto-racing.speedtv.com/article/indycar-inside-the-2012-dallara/P3
Different aero-kits are delayed for 2013, so everyone will have default aero package made by Dallara in 2012.
This week race is at Infineon Raceway, Sonoma.

I'm not. We had already scheduled to go to the outer banks, if it is not blown away this weekend. Do have some friends that are going though.

Anyone alive here, three races (one road circuit and two ovals ) to go, Dario and Will are really close in points.

Sounds like a bad experience man. Sorry to hear it. They shouldn't sell seats like that if there's no visibility.

Alive...but been a little distracted. I've always figured Dario will win it again because he is not wound as tight.

Looks bad for Wheldon, fearing the worst.
On-board pictures are sickening.
I feel like I am going to throw up.
