And that's why they pack 3 races in the 2 weeks following the 500, trying to keep the audience.

It's now peeing it down there, can't see the race restarting

Boy am I glad I stayed on for Indylights, Dean Stoneman (who I've followed since F2) just won the at Indy in a finish that made the 2013 finish look huge!

Pretty sure I saw Newgarden's head hit the wall in one of the impacts, very very lucky guy particularly with so many impacts on the same side of the car.

T4V I knew someone would be triple screening it, though I'd have bet on Platty for that honour Just the F1 and Indycar for me today though, and all recorded due to work.

By the way, the BT guys are going to be doing the whole commentary for Road America on the 26th, not just covering the ad breaks

Just noticed the grey number 84 on the LM24 score board and had a quick look at what up with it. Turns out its this year "Garage 56" car which is the slot they have for a specialist prototype and this year it's an LMP2 Nissan modded for use by a quad amputee!

Blimey, the same number of cars wiped out as the entire F1 grid! I'm kind of amazed it doesn't happen more often in pack racing.

In other news Formula E had to cancel free practice this morning due to a power cut But they're qualifying now. Championship final in London on ITV later this afternoon.

In these restrictor races at the super speedways , Daytona, Talladega , it happens nearly every time , 3 and 4 wide at 200mph never gonna end well

Well the last Formula E race was a farce.

FORMULA E 2016/17 CALENDAR

Hong Kong October 9
Marrakech November 12
Buenos Aires February 18
Mexico City April 1
TBA April 22
Monaco May 13
Paris May 20
Berlin June 10
TBA June 24
Brussels July 1
Montreal July 15/16

Very nasty start-line crash in BTCC just now, a car was launched into a camera position and knocked it down. Fortunately they're currently saying the cameraman is OK.

Yes that pass for the lead with the 2 Penskes was awesome.

NOW if you haven't already get over the Demand 5 and watch the Rally Finland highlights. Breathtaking is the word!
