RHR was amazingly fortunate in that crash, the car skimmed his roll hoop and took off the camera.

They're about to restart this race shortly, hopefully a clean race from here...

General Motor Racing Thread MkII

Sebastian Bourdais was less than infused about the restart and you look at the fence repair and you can understand but he’s there, now we have to hope BT stick to the finish, I’ve found a Youtuber if they don’t

Pretty sure I read on Twitter he broke both legs and his right arm. Amazing really that he wasn't killed.

Next year Indycar Calendar is out, no ovals till Indy itself so no real reason for Alonso to get any more experience in taking the full season.

I LIKE ovals, they can be very entertaining races, quite often more so than “road courses” but there are only 5 next year, I remember when it was almost the whole season on ovals.

The final Indycar race of the year starts at Sonoma in around one hour... don't think I'll be able to watch it all tonight though!
