  • When was the last time no spins/wrecks in T1 all month?

    Notoriously the most difficult corner at IMS always bites at least one car in practice or the race, but despite all the big wrecks in May 2019, none of the occurred in turn one. Not even a simple spin.

    Bet you have to go back to the '20s or teens to find any instance where that has happened before.

    I don't know how long it's been, either, since that's happened (or not happened, as the case is), but it wasn't lost on me as my seats provide a pretty solid look into T1 and the south short chute. All in all a pretty quiet day down on the SW portion of the track.

    FWIW, Ericsson did hit the oval's T1 wall in the GP race. Not that that counts at all toward your point, however.
