Sigh.... that was the last holdout before the detroit gp I was planning on going to and taking my dad to. Feel like a war general seeing all defense posts fall one by one.

No double points for the season finale. However, whether we get a season of any description is academic at the moment.

This weekend would have been Round 2 of the 2020 season, at Barber. However, there is an iRace at Barber, which starts this at 2:30pm ET, Sunday.

I'm not particularly interested in iRacing but if someone wants to start a thread, that covers the iRacing season, feel free to do so.

Yannick should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Somebody should come up with a good joke about virtual racing vs IRL racing.
One thing is certain: virtual racing is safer in these times, if it's not held at a convention.

Take good care everybody.

I don’t understand why nobody other than mclachlan pitted before the safety car if it was a planned caution period. It seems like the obvious strategy?

With now doubleheaders at Iowa and Leguna Seca plus a second road race at Indy.


I question whether the series' plans going forward are realistic — I'm not convinced the parts supply chain can handle that many races over such a short period of time. Also, why the fixation on holding 15 races?

I suppose 15 races makes it more viable, as far as having a championship is concerned. Champ Car's final season had 14 races.
