Honestly, I'm going to wait for preseason testing before making any picks at this.

Still got around half the field to be annouced. Way to early to do this.

I'm tempted to say that the Chinese race will either be the best race of the year or the worst race of the year, depending on how it's handled. Yeah, it's a little early for full blown predictions yet, but at least this is a place we can share our speculations until we have more information on 2012.

That's what I first thought of when Baltimore was on the schedule, but it turned out pretty decent. We'll have to see. Very Happy

^My thoughts exactly except the fun part. Tbh with you guys, I feel like I won't be able to watch a single indy car race this year except maybe the indy 500. But when it comes within less than a week before race season starts, who knows if I'll actually change my mind about it or not. Sad

The sports world hasn't stopped whenever someone has died. Please think before you speak.

I honestly have no idea where you got this implication. It's the offseason, where do you get the facts and statistics to say it "stopped"? I don't see any reason why this year will be as horrible as you say it is. As BBoy stated, the racing world doesn't stop when someone dies. They mourn, pay tribute, and carry on. That's the way it is, has been, and always will be.

Ant, do you remember the 2001 NASCAR season? Not only did you have Dale's death you had the 9/11 attacks, yet it was probably one of the best seasons in NASCAR's history. Just because a sport looses a big star doesn't mean it is automatically going to go downhill.

.......

With all due respect, your post and whatever "logic" you are applying to it makes my brain hurt...

1. Lrn2spellcheck. Download firefox and/or put it in word
2. Did Nascar stop after Earnhardt die. No. Infact the 2001 season was actually one (if not the best) of this past decade. So maybe Indycar might have the same rebound.
3. With several different engines entering next season (Rumor has it the Lotus is much lighter) Could generate the possiblity of different winners in the series.

Please...Please THINK before you post something like this. Instead of making yourself look like a giant fool.

A new competition director and car are improvements. They're not recipes for disaster. Will they need some time to adjust? Maybe. But trying to improve the state of your sport is by no means automatically a detriment. And well, as for the schedule, at least they're putting some actual effort into it. They could just switch some dates around and call it a day like NASCAR, you know.

New competition director is going to be bad? Sure let's bring back Barnhart after his glorious 2011. New car is gonna be bad? Maybe since the Dallara is not really the best car for the series, but the new car brings in safety advances to prevent Vegas from happening again.

and when i mean complete chaos i mean awessome to watch.

Holy Contradictions, Batman! Recipe for Disaster or awesome to watch.

If you post something that lacks logic and looks silly, either be ready to defend your opinion or go back and think about what you just posted.

^ This.

You just completely contradicted yourself, Antony.

And saying that complete chaos is going to be "awessome to watch" makes you sound like Boozooka. Just sayin.

IndyCar has been in a bit of a slump the last few years, but at least give them a chance with a new car along with other things...

They're going with something new. I would expect problems to MAYBE rear up. But I wouldn't go as far to say Chaos...
