It's a good move, Indycar is gaining popularity and it's good to diversify your brand

Some interesting comments from Will Power, obviously with regards to today's race at Phoenix but also for IndyCar in general. Maybe this is something that will transpire with the 2018 car?

All forms of motor racing would be greatly improved with the philosophy of more power / less downforce. Giving IndyCars 1300 horses and taking all the wing elements away would be fine with me.

I'm wary about a race in China. Despite hosting an F1 GP since 2004, this hasn't translated into the birth of grass roots motorsport in China. Just watching this year's race and there were noticeably fewer people in the stands.

On the other hand opening up the series in the North West, reviving Portland and having another race in Canada, makes much more sense. The series already has a good nucleus of races and building on this is just what's required, then look to expanding abroad, to countries with an established motor sports fan base, like Mexico and Australia.

The Geely chairman being involved is an interesting tidbit though.

I understand that doing an oval race at Mexico is more interesting than a road/street race.

Puebla is the only large oval, I think. But it has tight, flat corners and long straights. It's not very wide either. It would need a massive rebuild.

According to this, SAFER barriers would need to be installed, and extensive resurfacing may also be required.

Why doesn't Mark Miles go for Hermanos Rodríguez, instead? No work needs to be done, race fans don't have far to travel and Bernie can't object as he no longer runs F1. It would be ideal as a season opener.
