Why would Ed get rid of his best driver this close to a race over drivers not getting along?
This late in the season he would of waited until the end of the season to decide over a minor ****y match between the drivers.

It was more than that(black eye and broken noses and wrists time)but the owner will never say that.
ESM is owned by both Ed and Scott. Now that's not to say that there is equivalent financial equity involved - I don't know but common sense dictates - but it makes it more complicated than just race drivers getting along or not, no matter what that not getting along entails.

Having read some of the more candid David Brabham interviews out there, it's not hard to detect there was a certain frustration with Scott when they were partners as well. One can read into that what one wants to I guess?

DW Coupe

I happened to stop by Roebling Road track near Savannah today and the Delta Wing Coupe was there testing. I'm not sure if anyone posted this already but if someone has already I apologize for repeating it. It ran a few laps and seemed to be turning decent lap times. The Spirit of Daytona DP was there testing also and both cars were on the track at the same time once. To me the gap between them seemed to be about the same for the 2-3 laps they were on track together. I didn't have a stopwatch so it is just an estimate. Also no pictures as I didn't have my camera with me. But the coupe does look better than the awful looking mock-up displayed at Sebring. My eyes are not as good as they used to be but it did look like it was Katherine Legge doing the driving.

Wow, that would be cool to stumble upon! They tweeted a photo today but it wasn't very revealing:

John Dagys provides an update on the damage from Baltimore here.

The bad news: The Core and Team Falken Tire Porsches and the Level 5 HPD ARX-03b were write offs. Core has a replacement car coming in from Germany next week. Porsche is trying to find a new chassis for Team Falken Tire before COTA as well, but they can use their 2010-spec car if necessary. Level 5 has already secured a new tub as well.

The relatively good news: The Paul Miller Racing Porsche and Risi Competizione Ferrari were repairable.

Estimated crash damage cost: $1.5 million+

An attention getting sum. If the series is going to go back there, they need to urgently address the situation that developed at the start.
