The "don't like it, don't watch it" argument is old and tired, as if watching & accepting and not watching & not accepting are the only two options imaginable
Pining on about the minutiae of every form of motor racing is old and tiring, too, don't you think?

Is that what Nick Daman said? If so he's either failing to appreciate, or he doesn't understand how difficult the last 10 years have been, since unification.

Everyone would like to see a return to an open formula, with multiple chassis and engines, like in the CART era. However, there just isn't the money at this stage for an open formula. Hopefully, the new aero-kit will produce the close, competitive racing IndyCar needs, in order to attract the money needed to eventually create a more open series but it won't happen over night.

100% correct.

And broadrun96 isn't alone with his most recent post. I stopped reading sportscar thread over a year ago and show up there only occasionally. There were too many motorsport-SJW's whining about the 'metaphysics' of GT racing and how everything used to be better.
