Well, thank you, NaBUru, but how did I actually get there when I just parked it for this round? I wasn't home and had seemingly better things to do than watch this race, so it made sense for me not to take part in the forum game this past weekend.
Also, I think it's rather weird that you youself have finished last as the only participant who actually placed any bets in this round. That's why I'm not sure keeping the bets from the previous round is the best way to go if competition turns out to be scarce for an event.

Well, I make the rules, and I decided to keep all previous bets active.

I prefer chasing ghost drivers (like in 1990s time attack videogames), rather than drive around alone.

Well, ghost drives surely don't ask any questions ;-)

I intend to participate again in the next round: the Grand Prix of Indianapolis looks like it's going to be quite an exciting race with the way the 2 manufacturers' aero kits and engines compare this year. The Indy road course is quite a unique track for the series, and it's one of two halves: you need less wings on the straights and more downforce than that in the twisty sections. I can imagine the Chevy teams going for more of a low downforce setup so as to not compromise straightline speed as they reportedly are somewhat down on power compared to Honda whereas the Honda teams can take advantage of their power plant by running more wing than the Chevy teams. And then, there will also be some Honda runners who try a low downforce setup.

I believe that's why the Grand Prix of Indianapolis might turn out to be the most exciting race of this season and we might even see some surprise results, too.

Have any extra cars been confirmed yet?
