Lotus leading GP2 points. SDS looks to the heavens and considers performing The Hamster Dance.

Indy Lights race has been pretty fun. Particularly the "grab two guys off the street" style pit stops.
 
2012-07-22 01:54:26 PM  
Let the hamster death commence!
 
2012-07-22 01:57:02 PM  
Which would win? An Indy lights car, or a Lotus Indycar?
 
2012-07-22 01:57:22 PM  
Gotta love the penalties being handed out on nearly a weekly basis here.

New engine? 10 spots.
Unauthorized change? 10 spots.
Misplaced tool found near engine? 10 spots.
One slight quarter turn of bolt that wont affect anything? 10 spots.
Hamster change? Ok, no problem with that Lotus teams

HVM does get penalized, but it is hard to lose 10 spots when you start last.

Well I never heard of a car that starts 1 lap and 10 spots down, but Lotus just manages to do it on their own every week

how are you going to penalize Lotus worse than their engine already has?
 
2012-07-22 02:03:40 PM  
10 spots down doesn't matter when you usually qualify 22nd or 24th.
 
2012-07-22 02:04:18 PM  
Go Gretzky!

"Scott and Will are back there with us with us with us with us with us."

(Anyone else's audio screwing up?)

Mine did that too

Yup. did that during the Lights post-race segment, too.

Reminded me of those silly "a how how how how" headlines that get greenlit whenever ZZ Top or La Grange gets mentioned

Lotus should be increasing the boost and cheating any other way they can. Might as well make it more exciting. Getting caught would just mean losing points, but they are already in last.

Agreed.
 
2012-07-22 02:16:57 PM  
Are they seriously showing how this works on a LOTUS?

PUSH 2 PASS = LOWER CARROT ON WHEEL
 
2012-07-22 02:17:16 PM  
Between the Tour de France and prepping for MotoGP I haven't been paying attention to any other racing. Probably going to miss today's race, but I'll check in here for the occasional update.

It's my only day off for the next couple weeks.
 
2012-07-22 02:17:45 PM  
Funny that they used Simona's car to describe push to pass. That car isn't going to be doing any passing while it is hamster powered.
 
2012-07-22 02:21:21 PM  
Emma Dixon - faster than a Lotus.
 
2012-07-22 02:22:46 PM  
Do we really need a sob story before the race?

Show some replays of past races or paint drying.

I'd start it

"In my quest to get into the Top 3, I don't care what I do or who I bump into or piss off to get that sweet sweet win. That's why I use FlexPen."

I'd climb in her cockpit, but I'd blow an engine on the 1st lap

The running Miller is back!

Miller is fun. "He gets too much airtime"
 
2012-07-22 02:42:31 PM  
Alright, make your prediction now. Who will be the first to have their complaints about blocking broadcast on air?

I call Power.

rhiannon: Go Gretzky!


I gotta say that as an Indianapolis Racers fan, I am having a real hard time saying 'Edmonton Indy'

Still cheering for the hamsters because I like hopeless causes...

This new Indycar is pretty damn durable for an open wheel car. How Power is still rolling, I don't know.

I'm sure he'll complain about the wall blocking him.
 
2012-07-22 03:18:31 PM  
Wow... this has got to be one of the most boring "road" courses ever. Cleveland is better for an airport course.

Woot. Indy on the teevee, Danica 300 on one of the widescreens courtesy of RaceBuddy. The way things should be (aside from having a few more races on).

Is there a Nationwide thread in the hoppah?

That wall's always been a wanker.

I guess so!

fark it. Feel free to discuss it here. I was planning on watching the recording, but even with the new configuration, Edmonton is by far the worst track still on the Indycar schedule.

/Detroit doesn't count, since most of the track is sitting in a dumpster.

And as I say that, N-wide goes green.

RHR is farkin' pissed.

Will Power thinks that wanker was trying to block him from behind.

I quite agree, this track layout is horrible.
