  • indycar signs 6 yr deal with surfers

    All right, you know what ... I ... We don't wanna talk, we wanna scream at people, but we don't want to listen or problem-solve. And that's what's frustrating about the dynamic of the group.

    I think this is a good move. Here is for moving it to the spring though.

      Agreed if only so it counts toward the championship. But overall good move. Surfers attendance wise has only been beat in recent years by Indy itself due to the Supercar double bill. Definitely a race worth having on the schedule.

        Now they will find out what Indy really means, the cars and stars of the Indy 500!
        It's always been about the Indy 500!
        I realize I have the right to remain silent, but don't have the ability or enough common sense to do so.:rolleyes:

          wont happen as long as The Grand Prix is still in March, that is the original reason it was moved to the Fall from its original "opening round" slot because F1 got the Spring Date

            Which Spring? There Spring or ours?

              One of my favorite races on the schedule. Midnight green flag normally and usually the kids are out and I have full reign of peace.

              Very bold signing. Shows TG is committed and wasn't sandbagging CCWS loyalists.

                I am surprised this happened so soon and for such a long contract. Just shows how committed the Indycar series is to this whole effort.

                  Yeah, hopefully it will quiet the critics?

                    So they inked a 6 year deal without setting a date?

                      Bernie has been talking like only he does...he's either going to shake them down for more $$$ or he will leave Oz.

                        Wait a minute...shouldn't F1 have been told they couldn't hold their race so close to an existing race? Isn't the FIA supposed to be independent?

                          To be honest, I would like Melbourne to tell Bernie where to go when their contract is up, as then the Gold Coast will be able to get back it's march/april slot, as that is the best time of the year to hold a race in South East Queensland as it does not have such unpredictable weather at that time of year (and why it was originally held then)

                            No promises for next year, but sometime between now and when before that contract is up for expiration.

                              Maybe come of the critics formerly known as CARTisans. But not those of us formerly known are IRListas who preferred a domestic focus for IndyCar.
