General Motor Racing Thread MkII

F1 may not be getting the Halo but after what Castronevis just went through I wouldn't be surprised if Indycar had it next year!

Can't believe they are going to send him out again.

Holy **** that's nasty, a wheel straight to the face. It's quite a spacious pit lane too. We saw a big pit lane crash earlier in the year too, might have been at the Indy 500.

Unfortunately I've missed the race due to BT's idiocy about rescheduling so I'll have to catch the repeat - I looked at the schedule last night and BT Sport 2 would only have had to not show classic boxing, and some carp fishing from 2014 - so I speculatively recorded BT Sport 1 & 2. So obviously they shuffle the schedule on BT Sport 3 instead and put it there

First race in the chase for the sprint cup just starting from chicagoland speedway , unlike F1 nobody knows who's going to win

Yes that'd be novel not knowing who's going to win! At least I've got the Indycar final at Sonoma later, though it doesn't start until midnight our time or something crazy. I'm not watching myself, but enjoy the Sprint Cup!

winning car fails post-race inspection. what a surprise. it happens too much (2nd week in a row for truex), and nascar are loathe to hand out penalties that mean something. it just devalues the sport for me - cheat to get in the next round of the chase and you're good to go. just as kyle busch cheats to win truck series, or JGR cheat to win nationwide races. the people officiating this sport need to grow a pair and start taking away wins. added to the problem of cheating, cup drivers racing in and being shoe-ins for wins in the lower series helps to add up to putting me off nascar altogether.

Formula E is back on Sunday on its new channel, Channel 5 from 8:30. Meanwhile Mercedes are considering an entry next season.

I'll dig out the 2016-17 race list in the morning

Only just seen this. Done.

What was wrong with the original list? I noticed it was slightly different at the end.

Mark Webber has announced his retirement from racing:

http://www.motorsport.com/wec/news/w...r-2016-838165/

Didn't see that one coming, but all the best to him for whatever he's going to do next. Probably a pretty decent media career if he wants it...
