Actually, I recall that the chasis being suitable for oval racing was a requirement laid out to Panoz by the CCWS.

[For example, the DP01 has a more upright seating position than the old Lola (as does the IRL Dallara) to reduce the chance of back injuries when the car goes backwards into a wall, which is a common type of crash in oval racing. (Since the spine is oriented perpendicular to the wall, there should be much much less compressive stress)]

Of course, the Panoz hasn't been raced on an oval because CCWS dropped them from the calendar. But I think that was a money/business issue and not a car issue.

At the end of the day though, the Panoz is lighter, and the Dallara is proven on ovals, so I'm not sure that this information would really change your point anyways. Just mentioning what I remember

Already won't happen. FIA wouldn't allow that title. It'd have to be 'series'.

Anyway - Indycar World Series is what is was before the split, I'm sure for nostalgia reasons if they merged that's what it'd be called.

Your steady getting-back-to-Adam-and-Eve approach, ms, isn't very helpful in bringing things forward; ok we know you have a personal problem with TG, but if AOWR want to walk a step further they have to start from the present situation, like it or not, and the present situation TG has a central position, like it or not.

Why would anyone believe that Tony George should be the central character of any merged series? If anything it should be independently run for a board of directors. Sure, Tony can be on the BOD, however I wouldn't allow him to be involved in the day to day running of the sport, period.

When I say that TG has a central position, I don't mean that everything must belong to him; I just mean that trying to rebuild AOWR without him (and by consequent without Indy500) has proven a nonsense.

He owns Indy500 and we all know where the "nothing sacred about Indy" principle has brought to.

I don't think anyone has ever NOT included mr. george in a unified series.

It's all a mute point for now anyways.
