  • HVM Out of Business??

    Hope that this is only a rumor, but I am hearing that HVM has closed the shop and the landlord has changed the locks on the doors.

    I hope not too, but now that you mention this I recall seeing a lock company van at the gate yesterday on my way home from work. I also noticed this morning that the gate was closed/locked when it is usually always open, at least on the one side.

      That would be a big bummer, especially for Simona fans.

        I'm hearing some rumors to this effect as well. Hopefully, something's figured out.

          They could have had a break in or fired someone, to change the locks. Doubt it though. Sucks, especially with one race still left. I guess she's not going to Homestead?

            If I am another team I taking a hard look at hiring her. She really is a rising star and gave the big boys in the red cars a run for there Money on the Twisties. Shame if she misses Homestead though with the ROY on the line.
            You cannot wrangle chaos. You can only try to plan for it.

                    Hope this isn't true, but at least there's only one race left, and Simona and the team just don't seem to have the speed on 1.5 milers, so at least we're not missing much, although every lap of track time at an oval is helpful to her progress as an IndyCar driver

                      How would missing the last race affect the TEAM money?

                        I think you're allowed to miss as many as four races, so it wouldn't be an issue. Although if the team is truly out of business it's not like the series is going to get a refund from them anyway.

                          The series "fines" the team for not showing up. The TEAM money is appearance money; if you don't appear neither does your check!

                            Interested to know where these 'rumors' are coming from? Until they become either fact or quashed by a 100% reliable source, ie HVM Racing inc. I would personally take them with a pinch of salt.. You know, twitter for example, is the modern day equivilent of chinese whispers For the record, the team usually get the Friday off on a non race weekend, which would perhaps account for no one being around. jmo

                              TSO's the one reporting it. It sounds like they've been missing some rent payments to the landlord (hence the doors being locked according to TSO sources), which isn't good at all, but they aren't reporting that the team is done.
