(IndyCar)   Can Hinchcliffe avoid hanging out on the course again? Will the invocation be as wacky and as memorable as last year? It's the 39th Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach (4 PM, NBCSN)   (indycar.com) divider line 145

Tony HInchcliffe? Son of the mob?

I got a new racing game for my Sega Dreamcast last week called Flag to Flag, it was officially licensed by CART, so you get to play the 1998 CART season. It was really awesome to race in Long Beach, and that final hairpin is real crazy. I hope we can get some good racing again this year.

The crazy invocation last year from the "pope of Long Beach" can be seen here (already set at 23:13)

I was there early last month (the aquarium) and tehy already were getting things prepared.  the streets/corners were red checkered, the stands were under construction, and they had already started diverted traffic around the crash walls.  crazy.  like 6-7 weeks of prepartaion (at least).
 
2013-04-21 04:22:13 PM  
Long Beach time.

Hi y'all checking in for the racing, Kenseth won the Kansas race.

I'm just glad NASCAR finished in time. Too many cautions

That seems about right, they set the barriers up on Lakeshore dr in Toronto about two weeks out. Lakeshore is a major route in and out of toronto. The stands get set up about 6-8 weeks out.

They really need to broadcast the celebrity race just for the lulz.  I'm sure it would get better ratings than Indy Lights.

That was kind of awesome.  Amen.
/sega dreamcast?  that's pretty old school.  Looks like there might be a dreamcast emulator so you can play on your pc.  So far as racing games go, you should check out rFactor for the F179 mod (F1 1979 season) which has the older version of Long Beach.

It was a cleaner race than lights too.

Wonder how many cars take themselves out in the first turn? With Walldebrand right in the middle of the pack, there might be some action.

THE POPE OF LONG BEACH NOT HERE THIS YEAR

*outrage!*

The #stp400 concluded at pretty much the ideal time for us to hit the east side of the LBC. Time to regulate, #IndyCar.

Speed will show the celebrity race repeatedly in the run-up to Christmas when they have nothing if the last three years are any indication. (they probably show it in a week or two also for the first time)

/Oops, forgot we're on NBCsports this year.  Just checked my Tivo, there doesn't seem to be any celebrity race in the schedule for the next two weeks.

I'm old school when it comes to games. F355 Challenge (also on Dreamcast) also has the Long Beach track from around the same time, as well as Atlanta and Laguna Seca, and a number of international tracks

How brave of Saavedra's tire to attempt continuing the race.
 
2013-04-21 04:56:37 PM  
Oh yeah, I forgot about Saavedra's derp-out yesterday.

Jay Penske backstabbing Legge is looking dumber and dumber by the day.

Lulz @ Saavedra's weekend. That was some straight up asshattery with the practice crash

Yeah, cut to the pits instead of showing the on track battle that ended up with two cars in wall.  Good call on that director.
 
2013-04-21 05:26:55 PM  
Nice job cutting away to the pits during a pass attempt
