(IndyCar)   Can this brand new course at IMS last more than a year? Will most of the drivers find ways to screw this race up too? It's the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis (3:30PM ET, ABC)   (indycar.com) divider line 195

Sadly I'm not going to be home (or back in time) for this race today. I'll be here for Kansas later. I hope this will be REALLY good but knowing the clownshoes we've had at every race this year, it should be interesting. Enjoy it all

Standing start, 2,200' straight run into a tight turn 1. How many does Sato take out? Marco upside down? Helio with a penalty and Power with none?

They finally put in the chicane that Ferrari didn't want.

King Something: They finally put in the chicane that Ferrari didn't want.


And put the start grid way back behind the bricks at Schumi's suggestion. That was a good idea.

RHR backed it into the wall in possibly the least destructive accident at Indy ever during qualifying. Indycars, like hover boards, don't work too well on water. What's the forecast?

So everyone got their clown shoes on?
 
2014-05-10 03:32:37 PM  
At work so I've got it recording. Gotta see if the servers here can put up with a stream.

Should be fun, looks like a lighter crowd than expected though.

I remember when today would be pole day for the Indy 500, the crowds were huge. I still can't figure out what they were thinking having this race at all.

Im predicting a massacre at turn 1
 
2014-05-10 03:46:05 PM  
Alright, let's get this one started. Course looks good, and don't be fooled by the stands. The viewing mounds are jam-packed (per folks at the Speedway).
 
2014-05-10 03:49:49 PM  
Oh hey, the two seater is working.
 
2014-05-10 03:51:44 PM  
Looking at the start list, Tony George's desire to promote American drivers sure worked out well long term didn't it?

For the inaugural Brickyard 400, something like 80 drivers tried to qualify. Indy has an inaugural race here, and we're still wondering if we can fill the field for the 500.
 
2014-05-10 03:52:21 PM  
Is takumo sato gonna have to slap a biatch into a wall?

We do have 33 starts confirmed.
 
2014-05-10 03:54:52 PM  
Oh man...
 
2014-05-10 03:54:58 PM  
Yep

Called it too early
 
2014-05-10 03:55:05 PM  
Hahaha that didn't take long...jesus christ
 
2014-05-10 03:55:11 PM  
Major accident on the start
 
2014-05-10 03:55:17 PM  
Not even turn 1.
 
2014-05-10 03:55:37 PM  
Wow...
 
2014-05-10 03:55:40 PM  
And there it is... wow

My name is Juan Pablo Montoya, you killed my racecar, prepare to die
 
2014-05-10 03:56:14 PM  
Lemme guess. They didn't even make it to turn 1.

/hello race fans
 
2014-05-10 03:56:20 PM  
Man one car stalled on the start and chaos after that.

I'm pretty sure they have a full grid for the 500. And we may actually get a bump or two. There have been rumors that there may be one or two late additions this week. I heard Katherine Legge is trying to get something together.
 
2014-05-10 03:57:02 PM  
Well, I was thinking they could get to one...

Leave it to them though.
 
2014-05-10 03:57:05 PM  
Conway slapped the pit wall in that as well.
 
2014-05-10 03:57:29 PM  
That escalated quickly.
 
2014-05-10 03:57:52 PM  
Scott Goodyear approves of these type shenanigans

She was running at Seca last weekend in Tudor, wasn't she?
 
2014-05-10 03:58:56 PM  
That sums up IndyCar. 11000 RPMs to 0.

In the Delta Wing, yes.

What is the emotion of watching this interview?

Sebastian Saavedra is pisssssed.

Sato is still out there?
 
2014-05-10 04:03:20 PM  
I know this kind of stuff can even happen in F1...but somehow it just seems so much worse at these races. And really why not save the side by side for later on in the race versus wasting it now under yellow?
 
2014-05-10 04:04:43 PM  
Indycar is so bush-league.  What a farce.  A league for wannabe's and washouts.  What a shame that CART was ruined for this crap.
 
2014-05-10 04:05:32 PM  
Worth noting JPM was restarted before the field came back around. Still on lead lap. Oh holy crap diabeetus had a nasty view of that.

/Scott, F1 only races on street courses? Huh?
 
2014-05-10 04:05:33 PM  
Killer instincts by RHR. He was well prepared for that scenario.
 
2014-05-10 04:06:28 PM  
Well having two chassis written off at a start, that keeps costs down.
 
2014-05-10 04:06:29 PM  
Dear Indycar. you kinow whats more fun even than standing starts? Lemans starts. Please make it happen.

I kinda took that to mean no ovals or courses built on ovals (like this one).
