Hopefully they don't botch the standing start.

Hopefully they don't botch the burnouts they are allowed to lay on their start boxes the lap before they do the standing start.

Just finished watching the drivers' meeting a few minutes ago.  Seb's questions about the restarts were pretty heated.
 
2014-04-13 03:37:53 PM  
Do they do the start like formula one?

soupafi: Do they do the start like formula one?


Yes.  Hopefully it doesn't lead to a trainwreck in turn one.

Good afternoon, all! Hope you guys enjoy the race today, and happy birthday to the LBGP ... here's to another 40 years!

We're starting near the back today but I think we have a deceptively good race car. Gonna be a tough one; hope we can manage a result from it.

Really.

Haha!!  we are starting in the front half (best place to be in a wreck is in front of it, or at least most of it).  Our car is awsome today. We are going to win it!

World Superbike, MotoGP and now Indy, it's a damn good day.

Good luck Ed!

I went back to last weeks thread, he is with Carlos Huertas' team now.

I love PT's "I don't give a fark" attitude.

PT: "I've been fired by Roger Penske, I'm not afraid of being fired by you."

Paul Tracy doing color commentary....so there's what a 30 second delay?

Hey guys. I've been battling food poisoning since yesterday, so my participation in this thread/race may be limited. But I'll be reading along when I can.

Little Al isn't so little anymore. I'm surprised he's not racing anymore. His dad was still running at his age.

I liked Diffy saying we missed the beginning of the command, we did because he won't shut that hell up.

decent start!

Clean and green. Well done drivers.
 
2014-04-13 04:54:51 PM  
Good start!

/I can't believe they didn't do enough practice for the drivers to be able to accomplish the standing start last year.  It was such a cock-up.

JPM completes the pass,  Rahal going off stratergery
 
2014-04-13 04:57:34 PM  
Juablo is on reds, Helio and DJ Willy P are on blacks, to answer PT's unspoken question.
 
2014-04-13 04:58:51 PM  
Ryan Hunter-Reay is checking out.
 
2014-04-13 04:59:37 PM  
Cool, didn't miss much.

/flipping back and forth between this and Bolts/Caps because Fark Montreal, that's why

Dueling Player's light blue cars into the fountain even.  Wheel to wheel.  That was cool, I think that the guy behind didn't make the pass.

I was just on racer.com, their current issue is "legends".  Pretty surprised to see three Unser's on the cover and zero Andretti's or Clark's.

This is the third time they've done a Legends issue since their reboot. Pretty sure Mario and Clark have been covered.

I miss Juablo in NASCAR. He can't get away with the bumping and blocking in Indy the way he could in a stock car

BIG hit from Bourdais!

SeaBass in the tire wall heavy!
 
2014-04-13 05:24:53 PM  
That is one wrecked car. Not a hard hit

OK, I take that back. A quick fix can get him right back on track
 
2014-04-13 05:26:25 PM  
These DW12s really are pretty robust under some circumstances.
 
2014-04-13 05:28:58 PM  
It looked harder than it was. that white piece of debris obscured the wheel, it looked like the front end was scragged.

Yeah, straight into the tires seems to do surprisingly little damage except for the busted wing.
