Honda Indy Toronto - IndyCar

Post by bigdc48 on Thu Jun 11, 2015 8:30 pm

The IndyCar Series heads to the northof the border for the 10th round of the series at the streets of Toronto, where Bourdais and Conway were victorious in the doubleheader last year. This year will be one race. Scott Dixon won at Texas last week, looking to chip away on Montoya's championship lead.

Toronto's always fun, although i don't expect this to be the chill race for the non-bumping and bashing.

I heard Nelson Piquet would be in Indy Lights this weekend? Did I mishear or did he run today?

That so easily could have been a Jeff Krosnoff incident

Yeah he led the early portion of it, he was the one in that video that had Enerson go over the back of him.

not really, Krosnoff's death was mostly due to the Lightpoles being on the inside of the catchfence, that has long since been fixed.

That race was awesome. Josef wins again! I don't think seeing him win will ever get old!

Great race, very clean with some intense moments

Sarah Fisher's team with an awesome run today and Flippi impressiing as well, also great to see Newgarden knocking off the wins...Very likeable driver.

Fun stuff.

For a rain race on a street course, this was a very clean affair, not to mention the racing was really solid, especially at the end between Newgarden, Flippi, Castroneves and Power. Nice job by CFH Racing to nab a 1-2 finish after several races of bad luck.

The 2015 Honda Indy Toronto gets a solid 7.5/10.

So the highest placing Honda at the HONDA Indy Toronto was Ninth. As good of a race it was, this is kinda a problem.

Too bad Indycar lacks the balls to fix it. Somehow the Germans had more balls to fix it when a similar situation happend last year to Mercedes.

Because they might leave and leave the series a spec series once again?

Because teams might lose critical revenue from sponsors who are growing tired that their cars aren't performing, and close up shop all together?

I've read something along the lines of if Honda is allowed to change their stuff then Chevy will throw a bitchfit.

Honda missed it but not getting to make improvements and being locked for the season is shitty.

But then again, if you allow Honda to change something, it'll be akin to "Changing the rules midseason!!! YOU CAN'T HAVE THAT!!!"

Either way, IndyCar can't win

At least though Honda isn't as bad as LOLotus was.

Forgot to do this. Great race on Sunday. Better than that crapshow of a NASCAR race at Michigan. Josef Newgarden is going places now. He's gonna have a bright future once he goes to a big team like Penske, Ganassi or Andretti soon. I'll give this race an 8.0/10.
