catastrophe averted: Mztlplx: I think Sato will catch Power. But can he catch Pagenaud?

Pagenaud still has to pit one more time. He needs to widen the gap to at least 30 seconds just to try and maintain lead.


Too late, both Power and Sato just got him.
 
2012-04-15 05:56:08 PM
Yeah! MOAR POWER!!1
 
2012-04-15 05:56:59 PM
Pagenaud pits. Power to the lead, Sato in second, Barrichello in third, Pagenaud returns in 4th.

Go Rubens!

Sato's doing surprisingly well too

DanZero: Jensaarai: I got filter owned in an MMA thread by saying UFC followed by the word "knows." Example:

"Every fan of the Ufarknows that Brock Lesnar has no chin"

So you cant even put FC and K together. nice. Feels like grade school here -- can't upset the sponsors!


Its more to keep Fark from being flagged by corporate web filters.

At least you don't have to finish behind Schumi now!

To be fair, I think the admins keep the filter around as much for the laughs as anything. For instance, there have been many April Fools days where they'd just subtly tweak it to fark with us.

/Go Sato!
//Deserves that win sooner or later

Yeah, I remember when the AF filter would add something to everyone's posts like "I'm shaking it to the left and to the right"

and THIS

True. If he can pass Power, I will applaud him. He's due for a win.
 
2012-04-15 06:01:53 PM
Simon P might still win this thing.

Announcer: Only 14 laps to go

Ticker: 11 laps to go

Hopefully the announcer is right, to extend the lulz of this race.

10 laps to go. Anything can happen.

That's one hell of an F-Bomb delay there.

NBC, this isn't NASCAR; you don't have to go to commercial every three minutes.
 
2012-04-15 06:04:00 PM

Tsrwedge: NBC, this isn't NASCAR; you don't have to go to commercial every three minutes.


But at least they are doing more side by side than NASCAR ever would
 
2012-04-15 06:04:32 PM
Pagenaud's last lap was 1.5 seconds faster than Power. Will be an interesting finish.

This is true.

If the top 3 maintain current pace, it all depends on how quickly Pagenoud gets through Sato.

7 laps to go, 7.62 seconds behind. I don't think he'll quite get there.

Hildrebrand almost treated TK like he was turn 4 at Indy

Drive, Will, drive!
 
2012-04-15 06:11:03 PM
Oh boy, Power's gotta pass E.J. Viso. This is going to get interesting.
 
2012-04-15 06:11:18 PM
Simon gained 0.8 that lap, gap is 2.6s, Power told to go.
 
2012-04-15 06:11:24 PM
2 laps, 2.6 seconds. It's gonna be close.....
 
2012-04-15 06:12:07 PM
Viso's playing spoiler
 
2012-04-15 06:12:15 PM
LOL VISO
 
2012-04-15 06:12:41 PM
Props to Viso for getting out of the way.
 
2012-04-15 06:13:17 PM
Makes you wonder if Rahal had been paying attention.


Oh no! Sato spun!

A double deuce to all fans

Great win for Power, great drive for Pagenaud.

Sato, you idiot!, and faceplams galore at the hairpin.
 
2012-04-15 06:15:08 PM
Great race. Fantastic finish.

Dammit -- just needed to finish that off

I take it that Indy Cars don't have much of a reverse gear.
 
2012-04-15 06:16:09 PM
Guess Will Power will just have to celebrate there.

Reverse is always arduous to get into in a racing car, plus anti-stall isn't working on all the cars yet.

The old man who can't get an interview will just run out on the track

I think they are supposed to this year, along with anti-stall bits in the engine computer, but doesn't seem to be working too well.
 
2012-04-15 06:19:04 PM
That was just a really wacky race. I hope next weeks is just as entertaining.

IndyCar will never have reverse. Too much weight.

Awesome race, fun (and informative, thanks peoples) thread :)
