Was a nice race, but next year I gotta watch live again.
It's just not the same watching tape delayed.
Damn, they scattered a lot of debris :lmao:

Sorry for my latish 2 cents, …I was on vacation in Italy :)

In deed that was once again a fantastic 500! Image …what an outstanding performance from Juan Montoya.
This guy is a racing icon; a real treasure and representative for IndyCar and for his sponsors.
On my way to Italy (the day after the 500) I shortened the long car trip listening to several hours of (prior 500) IMS-radio stuff (ESPN 1070thefan to be exact radio-station-wise :wink: ).
So I stumbled over this Montoya (pre-500) interview which made me crack up at 4.30AM behind the wheel :rofl:
:arrow: https://krotix.net/94cf7c7b585964b4

Well, it got even better that day! Believe it or not, Kevin Lee (IndyCar broadcaster and co-host of the radioshow The Talk Of Gasoline Alley on ESPN 1070thefan) took my E-Mail question on the air to ask Indianapolis Speedway historian Donald Davidson! Image
Check this out :D

I’m pretty sure that I’m not even distantly related to Johnny MAIS. His lesser-known birth name is Johann Anton Mais. You can find more of his remarkable life here
:arrow: http://kansasracinghistory.com/tripod/Roller/Mais.htm
Generic automobile pioneer's life ...if the site’s stats are correct, he received US citizenship not until the 30s.
...guess we run a little bit off topic now :oops:

C U on track, Kelvin

Just for the record, I'd be 100% in for another Indy 500 race with you guys again. I'll never forget the finish of the last one :D

You mean this one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruhawliSSYU

Too bad I wasn't in that race, I had no steering wheel at the time if I rememebr correctly.
Were you the one flying into the infield?

LOL at the first comment on the vid: "Is that iRacing or NR2003?"

:lmao:


@Dom: Sorry, don't have that game either.

Spoiler regarding quali 1 (2017):
Spoiler :
damn, that was one badass crash of Sébastien.... :(
Positive to see that the cell looked in good condition. I think this one would have been fatal a couple of years ago...
He suffered multiple pelvis and hip fractures...

oh, and well done Alonso.

Indeed I wake up this morning to see various motorsport forums in meltdown over it, what a nasty lick.

i was watching live. until then. saw Sato fastest after and gone to sleep.

well that was really unnecessary. 230 was fine to bi in top 9 he drow 231,and some. Well done but. he is not going to drive this year- and that is bad.
i even saw him win this 500
