  2. 1) thanks for the clips.sooo much going on this weekend and not nearly enough time to catch it all.

    2) Is it just me, or do the Indy cars look terribly, horribly underpowered (as compared to, say, F1 cars)? If I didn't know better (and I don't) I'd dare to say the road/endurance formulas look faster and dare I say ore exciting? It's no wonder open-wheel road racing is unappreciated in the US when our premier formula looks so...'meh'.

    1. Apparently they're over 8 seconds a lap faster than the Daytona Prototypes. In a racing sim an '05 McLaren laps Barber about 13 seconds faster than the Indy Cars.

      The IndyCar race was pretty exciting! Way more passing than I would have expected on a circuit like Barber. The broadcast needs some adjustments- having the driver names up on a little placard by the car like F1 to help with identification would be nice to start- the announcers fumble and waste time with it. The younger announcer is a bit painful to listen to at times.

  3. Great to see my video, "Pole Lap - Estoril 2012...", linked here as I'm a big fan of your work here in the Blog. Don't miss two other videos I uploaded recently, Race 2 @ Portimao and Race 2 of Estoril, there is lot of action and good racing!
    Cheers,
