    Indycar 2018

    INDYCar is back testing for 2018 season

    Is anyone else as excited as I am for another season for Indycar - Hoping to get to the Races in Road America and IOWA this year

    The cars look amazing with the new Universal bodykits






    Please tell me I'm not the only person on this forum who enjoys watching Indycar?

    You're not the only one. Very much looking forward to the return to universal aero kits - the racing was excellent around 2012-2014 before the introduction of the manufacturer kits so will be hoping for a return to form.

    Indycar 2018

    Going to try to follow more this year, I struggle a bit with the oval stuff but watching the 500 (thanks Alonso) got me interested in circles again. Plus I think the cats look great on track

    Really, defiantly the wrong way around, Indy Car doesn't need to create fake racing via Stages

    Last years Texas race was a doozy

    Havenít seen the new aero yet but looks good from the pics in the first post. Last years aero made the cars look like sleds.

    No Helio Castroneves this year either. He might be doing Indy but not totally sure
    Sutherland Shires #1 Escort? is that like being the 4th best prostitute in Kazahkstan?

    Helio is doing Indy only the Captain is going to run a 4th car for him, JPM however won't be doing the 500 his year

    Indycar is a great way to get into oval racing. Very different to NASCAR as the races often become a battle between outright pace, tyre wear and fuel milage. You'll see cars coming and going as some run flatout for shorter stints, whilst others save the tyres and run longer. In a way, it's somewhat similar to the refuelling days of F1. Texas and Pocono are great for this, I recall one of the Texas races a while back where half the field was running flatout 40 lap stints while the rest of the field was going a full 20 laps longer. Made for a real interesting crossover. And race control doesn't get all ADD if there hasn't been a caution for 20 laps.

    The Indy 500 is a must watch event and is frequently one of the best races of any series each year.

    St Pete is a great little track too. Really looking forward to a return to pre-aero kit quality of racing, those were some great seasons.

    Foxtel or torrent - sometimes I find it easier to just download it and watch on tablet/laptop the day after.

    Interested to see how Robert Wickens performs - especially alongside James Hinchcliffe, as It think they'll make great teammates. Wickens is a race winner in GP3, FR3.5 and DTM. Also hoping that Sato can finally find some consistency.

    Not too badly it would seem! Wickens on the pole from Will Power.

    I read the other day that Indycar upload their races to Youtube the day after. Seems to good to be true. All the 2017 race are up on their channel.
    Daily - VF SV6. Former daily, now with more up on blocks - S15 200SX. Weekends - 149 EH Holden Special. Project - EH Premier. More schizo than ever!

    Can definitely see the improvements in the way the cars race - lots of side by side, attack, defense and some great passing moves. Good race!
