    irloyal's thread on the Mistakes at Las Vegas

    Ok folks, I’m going to do this one time as its own thread. I did not mean to hijack threads in the past, I just think that the Las Vegas incident was a very sad and poorly handled situation that has profoundly impacted the IICS, and I want to answer some of the questions that I have raised related to Las Vegas.

    1 – Life lesson learned.
    Automobile racing is a very dangerous sport, at ALL levels. Big Boy (and Girl) racing even more so. Every time the participants strap on a...

    Well, I had a fabulous Sunday at the track

    Well, I had a fabulous Sunday at the track. Got hooked up with suite tickets at pit out, and access to the official Indycar Paddock (the catered suite). I was also allowed in the pits and on the track. I arrived by 9:30, and was walking outsde the fence on my way to the credentials suite to pick up my ticket, when I saw three of the 2-seater Indycar come roaring past--then Arie looped it. As he tried to get going again he stalled it. I ran into him at the Indycar Paddock. He was very nice. ...

  • Rahal bus trip from IMS: Observations

    Rahal bus trip from IMS: Observations

    My daughter and I did the one day trip. No complaints, it was a great experience. We left at 6 sharp, arrived about two hours before the race was supposed to start which meant we had to hustle a bit to stand in line to get the paddock passes, but no big deal. There was a bit of uncertainty about when the bus was leaving because of the rain, but we only left about 40 minutes late and that was because of the traffic, our bus driver said. Not really any concert fans I guess, but no one wanted to...

  • My Tracy take from last year (2002)

    My Tracy take from last year (2002)

    Originally posted on May 24, 2003: I know 'wrench thinks this topic is a broken record but screw him.... From May 28 2002: OK racefans Over the last two days I've seen many trolls, flames, opinions and just general bs aimed at my boy Tracy concerning the results of this past weekends events. Since I am the designated "CART guy" around these parts, and a Tracy fan to boot, I figure it's about time I bored you all with my take on what happened. Sunday afternoon I was banging on my sc...

  • My 2008 Magnificent Colossal Indy 500 Photo Blog Thing Pt 2

    My 2008 Magnificent Colossal Indy 500 Photo Blog Thing Pt 2

    Originally posted May 7th, 2008 Team Penske has performed admirably and as expected so far this month at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Helio “TwinkleToes” Castroneves is doing what he does…driving flawlessly and getting good results. Helio is a company man. The other Team Penske hot-shoe, Ryan Briscoe, has proficiently executed his duties at IMS, but has had some problems in earlier events this season. He has destroyed countless thousands of dollars worth of formerly shiny an...

  • Straight line speeds at indy

    Straight line speeds at indy

    Originally posted January 1, 2004 If the chassis is working well, the average lap speed is between 4 and 6 mph lower than the average trap speeds entering turns 1 and 3. This is a very close "rule of thumb" which try's to take out the effect of the wind direction. Because of V2 (you will loose more speed heading into a head wind than you gain with a tail wind) this 2 mph window is close approximation) With the 1995 Menard motor (1050 observed h.p, i was at the dyno test) The trap speeds w...
