Nikki Katz should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Autosport say that Maldonado isn't interested in ovals, so it sounds like the deal will make kv a part time team anyway. A shame. I'm not sure who will be in the second smidt either if aleshin's payment is blocked again.

I'd like to know what is behind the very possible demise of KVRT? Kevin Kalkhoven, is co-owner of Cosworth, the rights owner of the Long Beach Grand Prix, a founder of Champ Car and joint owner of KVRT, which started as PKV Racing in the Champ Car series; so a very high profile.

However, despite all that, he has never had the success one might have expected. His best result was winning the 2013 Indy 500, with Tony Kanaan driving. Apart from that he never won a series championship, whether it was Champ Car or IndyCar.

He is obviously not short of money but I wonder if he has just lost the drive, the motivation to run a team that's had such limited success?

Kalkhoven himself has said nothing about closing the team. It makes no sense run part-time either, they'll lose the money from Indycar for last year's finishing position in the championship.

Hear some of the things going on at this women's march in DC? Ashley Judd (mrs. Franchitti) is a vile woman. She is saying disgusting things over there right now. How can Dario put up with her crap?

He doesn't. They've been divorced for years

None of this is relevant to the thread. There are plenty of other places to air your political views, just not here.

Thanks.

I thought Aleshin had already been confirmed at SPM. However, it was only confirmed today.

Alex K has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
He was... back in August, than... all of the sudden was unconfirmed by Robin Miller, as had problems with hid SMP Bank sponsorship. Now, that US and Russia are two strong allies, maybe he'll stay for good.

I may think SPM will race that Mexican German Dorrbecker on street/road circuits at least. Series needs Mexican, he is backed by Telmex.

Robin Miller's statements should be taken with a grain of salt. Aleshin himself said he was negotiating with at least one other team: http://www.motorsport.com/indycar/ne...easons-870409/

He did, with Carlin, that's why Carlin had convo with Kalkhoven for his cars, parts and tools. I believe they all figured out when Schmidt folded Indy Lights team, and press release, as far as I remember, stated only Hinchcliffe as driver for 2017. Do not matter now. Very quite around Kalkhoven's boxed equipment. It wasn't great team, but with right pair of hands and feet, could win here and there.

Thanks for the update. This driver and team combination worked out pretty well in the past few Indy 500s so it's nice that they give it another try.

What does the car count for Indy look like at this point? I know they are not likely to run the full season but is KV Racing going to be at Indy?
