We used to have two races, one in March and the other in October, then pushed out to November. I've been to both and they were all cold (by our standards, 0-10C) and I am sure it killed attendance. I can do those temps for several hours, but not all day...

Which is why I think Barber should probably stay where it's at. The only downside is that when there is weather, it can get rowdy.

I'm not sure what the solution to the missing race is but if somehow we could keep Mid Ohio and work Cleveland into the schedule too...

I thought you mentioned Sanoma with regards to the empty slot between March and April.

Sonoma is in California anyway, so it'll never be as green as places like Barber or Mid-Ohio.

That area of California has very green and very tan growth depending on the season, and not too much further north is VERY green, but I can't think of any major tracks in that area. Think redwood forest and coastal fog near constantly. California runs the entire spectrum from desert scrub to temperate rain forest so it all depends where you are. Sonoma just happens to be more chaparral (cismontane if you prefer specifics) than green forest most of the year.

The other major circuit is Laguna Seca but it's about 125 miles south.

It would be hard to justify and still go to Mid-Ohio, but that's what I want too. Both races would have great crowds too.

Btw. here in Finland where we had virtually no rain from 10th of May till mid-June, open spaces (and our lawn) really started to look very much like coastal California. Usually the early June is mostly cool and overcast.

The immediate problem IndyCar faces with next season is, without Phoenix, what's going to fill the gap between Round 1 at St. Pete and Round 3, which I suppose will be Long Beach?
