Dario

I read in another thread that Dario has done his deal and is going to the Invisibles? Is this true, please say no!

Disappointing. Now, if Hornish still wins next year, with all the competition that's coming, he'll really be a star...

Yeah....they were all handed huge bags of cash to go over there... Let's just hope they dont need to spend it on wheel chairs.

Anyway, Cart goes on without those three....

What Jay said.

And as soon as I get home, my framed signed Dario card goes in the bin.

I think Robin Miller's article "It's about the money" sums it up quite well: http://espn.go.com/rpm/cart/2002/0917/1433087.html

If money is all they care about, I hope it keeps them warm at night.

The love of money is the root of all evil. It's not the money that's ruining the sports, it's the greed of the players who believe as Jacques says "The more you are paid, the more you are worth."

If that is true, the next time your mother has a heart attack, call Dario Franchitti. He earns more than any doctor in America.

Damn shame, I would have thought he'd have stayed, CART IS American racing, real racing real circuits, IRL is all about propping up the INDY 500. Still the only good thing that may come out of all this is a merger or a spread of IRL to road courses and in time all will be well. The cars will change to be more like CART etc etc and in 5 years we will have forgotten this little rift, it's just a real shame it couldn't have happened the other way round.
Lets just hope no one gets hurt in these inferior little cars.

Expect to see Dario have a one-off test in a BAR shortly. I'd say that would have been the clincher for him. They gave Tony a paper bag full of cash and a dozen hookers. Dario's got Ms Judd, so I reckon Honda threw in an F1 test to clinch the deal.

I can't open the picture, but if it's the one with her wearing an "I love CART" shirt, well she'll just replace it with an "I love $$$$$" one.
