I'm not sure much would change - other than it being a short flash in the pan for UK audiences. There is already a healthy representation of drivers who have been in F1 (I'm assuming that is what you mean by GP) competing in the series, and the UK has been represented regularly - but UK audiences on the whole are not interested.

For the majority of UK TV audiences, there are three types of racing:
F1 - everything else open-wheel is seen as less important.
BTCC - everything else with a roof is too long/lacks characters/lower quality.
Rallying - cars look impressive for a few moments, but when they realise the only way to keep track of the action is through timing screens, and there is no wheel-to-wheel action, it gets repetitive to watch.

Trying to get UK TV audiences interested in yet another form of Motorsport is difficult enough - add into that the fact that it is a foreign series, looks like F1 and is not forward looking in terms of technology and your potential audience is very limited. It's hard enough to retain enough enthusiasm for F1 alone; diluting the mainstream TV market would hinder, rather then enhance, the Motorsport offering in the UK I feel.

In Hispanic America, IndyCar airs on video streaming service Claro Video. It's only available for Claro phone users, and it requires an extra season pass. I tried to buy it last year and the website failed...

Online watching is not for everyone. But at least itís better than no Indycar coverage. Hope you sort the website issues out

The province of Ontario has apparently been pondering plans for the last two or three years regarding what will happen just across the road at Ontario Place, and it could also involve Exhibition Place, if the only plan anyone has seen is realistic and has the money behind it. If the trade centre was to be expanded out to be almost beside the football stadium, and the parking lot that's used for the vendor (Thunder Alley) area, support races paddock, etc., gets turned into underground parking with buildings and other things on top of it, there might not be much room left for the race.

Supposedly "the province will be sharing more news in the spring about plans for the redevelopment".

A second season of the INDYCAR iRacing Challenge, will start Thursday, March 18.

I quite enjoyed last year's races, so looking forward to this season before the actual IndyCar season starts at Barber.

The car I remember as Rick Mears, the Pennzoil Yellow Submarine, returns to Indy in 2022 with Scott Mclaughlin behind the wheel.

https://racer.com/2021/03/31/the-yel...a-new-captain/

Yes, I realize it's been older than that and famous as a Chaparral with Rutherford and more recent but for me it's Mears coming home from the town Memorial Day parade with belly full of cheap hot dogs and Acme sodas.

It looks better than Newgarden's black and white car.

Last season I tried to watch IndyCar on Claro Video. It required a Claro phone service, so I borrowed my brother's account.

On top of that I has to buy an IndyCar season pass. I tried multiple times, but the transaction always failed.

Every day I miss IndyCar on ESPN with Andrťs Agulla and Alex Pombo...
