I don't mind Monaco. It's one of the few tracks that you actually see the cars moving and get a genuine visual on how the drivers push, touching the barriers just so.
The race is usually meh, but just watching a single lap is awesome.

Thanks for a 76 lap driver's parade.

What a crock.

I notice that they seem to thing F3 cars are too quick around Monaco for young drivers and plan on changing to the slower, less powerful, Euro versions.

While it's good that revenue is up the article does not provide a profit/loss figure so hard to fully compare.

Could very well happen, although I think Scott Dixon is already saving fuel!   :D

It has been an interesting year wherein the teams of the series owner were caught being naughty in Round 1 and DQ'd.  How do you punish the owner of the series?  Well, I guess you let him punish his own team.

I just hope this year's 500 doesn't try for the "must end under green" unwritten rule like last year. 

On a sidebar, there looks like some rain in the forecast.  Some media outlets are actually talking that the race might be run on TUESDAY, for Monday looks like a total washout.  This could impact Kyle Larson doing the Indy/NASCAR double.  I can see him playing it by ear, but I am also guessing the 500 will be run at all costs and NASCAR moved to the back burner.

Let's hope for a good one though!

it's on my bucket list, together with a trip to the Jim Beam distillery, a nascar race and WOO sprint car event.

Dunlop Super2 Series / Re: 2024 Super2 and 3 Seasons ...

the different visions give very different views.

wondering if the wide view judicial camera makes it look like he was further across than he was prior to contact

https://www.supercars.com/news/murray-responds-to-perth-super2-disqualification?fbclid=IwZXh0bgNhZW0CMTEAAR2ET7g-_g3i3ev6Rd0q0b_SH_kEPvKuQBAK_DM2g95n7HsKDwZ8OxsfM0Q_aem_AZYeSSWiGbnlz05vAzzjHNm4GbdYxv0btXm0ZN9r_GOlTNmd8uqjSAkM6TaT3jKuVZEGJ3R_igxzzFURW-NYYibb

pretty clear at 28 secs in with contact that he was not in front as the judicial video suggests

(I toggled it to watch @ 0.5 speed)

thoughts?
