  • Gomez/Lloyd Chicagoland World Record

    Saw this on indycar.com. The finish of the Chicagoland Pro Series race last season with Logan Gomez and Alex Lloyd has been recognized by the Guiness Book of World Records as the closest margin of victory in an auto race. Gomez won by .0005 seconds and had his car 1.65 inches ahead of Lloyd at the line.

      Something to ponder...Can anyone, I mean anyone, produce a photo of the finish that has the start/finish stripe in the frame? I have not seen that yet, nor do I think we ever will.

      I am not questioning the finish to a great degree, but there might be a bit of a conspiracy theory in play.

      Help me out, show me the line!

        I am proud to say that i was there to witness that finish...!
        Understeer: you hit the wall with the front of the car.
        Oversteer: you hit the wall with the back of the car.
        Horsepower: how fast you hit the wall.
        Torque: how far you take the wall with you.

        Oversteer is when the driver finds his limits. Snap oversteer is when the limits find the driver.

          I was standing inline with the line that day.

          I had to look at the scoring pylon to tell who won.
          Badges? We don't need no stinking badges.

              I too was there, though that is really not the point since you could not tell from the naked eye who won.

              The picture posted above is what was on the IRL site with the computer generated line. I need to see the painted stripe on the track...That is the true line at that track and every other track and is where the timing and scoring beacon is located.

              It is what it is I suppose, but the harder you look, the more you will question the outcome.

                Was a very exciting race. We had to look at the pylon as well, then some of Logan's family and friends down below us started jumping up and down, celebrating.
