New Champ Car Website !!!

With all the bruhaha surrounding CART nowdays, and many "doom & gloom" neysyers waiting for CART's ultimate demise, it is very refreshing to see a new truly pro-CART website emerge at this time.

Check out = CHAMP CAR FAN ?!?!

This site has been online since a month ago, but after extensive construction (which isn't fully finished yet) the site is finally taking on a proper shape.

There isn't many true pro-CART sites out there and this is definitely a welcome addition.

Check out their forum as well... it definitely could use a boost ?!

That's not a pro-CART site, but an anti-IRL one... and a bad one at that... Java applets are terrible choice for web design (brutally slow). And the content leaves much to be desired either - from spelling mistakes in the CART driver's names to moronic joke headlines and photoshop pieces. Looking down all of the drivers with sponsor 'TBA'...I'm thinking that this site really embodies a lot that is wrong with the series.

And in conclusion this should be moved to the cool-sites forum.

Hay Jay,
seems to me that you've failed to notice me saying that the site's design and constructin still isn't fully finished - "Rome wasn't built in one day" ?!?!

Hey, even though O's favorite Champ Car fans couldn't spell the names of 6 drivers correctly (but that's OK since real Champ Car fans aren't supposed to pay attention to who drives the cars), they didn't misspell Tony George (who every real Champ Car fan is supposed to be obsessed about) once!

Before all the French Canadiens jump down your throat, I think it's c'est- I think I took French once, but that was way back when my ride was a Cragar four banger roadster, so I'm not sure I remember.

This is more appropriate in "cool sites" I think.

Cmon Zero, did you see some of the stuff on that site!?

"Boeing announces New IRL Chassis" That was perhaps the most distastful, disgusting, reprehensible garbage that I've ever seen written anywhere. How could anyone write something like that after Tony Rennas death and Bracks terrible crash?

No matter how you feel about the IRL, its drivers, or Tony George, going after cheap, gutter level laughs like that, are beyond bad taste and are repulsive. Is that where you get all of your "insider" information?

I'm with you Down Force, where do people like this come from?

Personally, I think that if these people want to spend all thier time and energy on something they hate, let them. Some of us have better things to do.

Also, I agree you you GP - they must be pretty disgusting human beings if they consider that kind of stuff funny.

For a Champ Car fan I find it strange that you seem to have more knowledge of the IRL than you do of CART...

Because none of us ever have cheap gutter level laughs or anything like that, especially not on this forum...
how about Eric the Half a Bee?
or "Get me a bucket I'm full"
"but sir it is only a wafer thin."

hahhahahahh MontyPython is superb, and they may not be purely gutterlevel but they lay in the street quite a bit, and we all laugh.
Humor is said to be based on a few things
Irony, sarcasm, Pain, Hyperbole-exaggeration, timing and somethings which slip my mind. can we find the humor in that website?
Although the delivery on the website is what made it poor i think
