Can you post the good bits here. I'm at work and have a firewall blocking the fun. Thanks.

They are saying that Memo Gidley deserves a ride with a good team in CART (Rocketsports?), but he won't lower himself to take a ride with Dale Coyne Racing.

Robin says to Scott that the IRL can't be to happy with his domination in the last 2 or 3 races (Dixon has led the last 290 laps).

Scott said the IRL may not like it because they would like tighter competition, but he and his team are very happy with how well they are running.

A caller asks Robin if ASTJ can get their hands on a Lola chassis before the year is up. Robin said he was recently talking to Stefan and they (ASTJ) don't think they will have the funds to do it. Robin also said that ASTJ are running the oldest Reynard chassis.

They can't get a hold of Derek Daly, so they are ripping him up (some pretty funny stuff).

They are also discussing if Scott Dixon will soon get a test drive in a F1 car or will he come back to CART first.

The Dixon situation is an interesting one, if he has F1 aspirations he needs to get back to road racing soon. Another year in the IRL may kill him.

Dixon's a nice chap, and wasn't too slow (wasn't too fast either though) - hopefully he can get back to road racing. I'd hate to see his career wasted.

Dixon is going to make money one way or another....he's fast in the IRL...it is not necessarily a waste of his talents or his career...

but either way, I see him ultimately running in F-1...I just hopwe he doesn't end up with a bad team that will be a waste of his time over there...

Too true Tim. I'm not certain he's F1 material though...at least if he is, it wasn't shown in Cart. I'd like to see him come back to Cart to see what he can do, but you're right he'll make money either way. He's marketable.

Personally, I'd like to see him back in CART as well...I think that series will be more important toward developing his overall potential and will allow him to grow and mature as a driver....

Reminds me of Mark Donohue's assessment of the Porsche 917/30 program - he knew it was killing Can-Am, but couldn't stop himself, because he had so much invested in the program, and it was more important to him than the series. Plus, he was about to retire from racing, so he figured Penske would just continue without the Can-Am (and we all know he was right).

Ganassi doesn't care about the series in the long term - he cares about the team long term. He's got irons in a few fires, and makes his money in whatever series is available to him.

I bet the IRL would rather see Sam Hornish dominating...

Who cares what the series organisers think? If a car/driver/team is superior enough to the opposition to win by a lap on merit, then what is the problem with them winning by a lap?

It'd be interesting to hear what Dixon would say when he got out from under Ganassi's thumb. If he ever does.
