Looking forward to the race tonight!

F1, MotoGp, Indycar. Just need a few beers (and Kylie to pop round) and it's a perfect day!

Anyone know why they have got rid of the LED position numbers on the airboxes of the cars that also showed the pitstop times counting up?

The Aero screen doesn’t help, I think the angle of the nose then the screen upsets the look a little. If there was a seamless transition it would look much better. I’m sure the next car will be better integrated when they get round to it.

Been missing for a few years now. I too used to like it.

It didn't rain at all during the races last year. I'm interested to see how the screens perform when wet. (Ovals excluded wobble)

I remember this was mentioned on the Marshall Pruett podcast some time ago. They stopped doing it because of reliability and accuracy issues. They're looking for different supplier but in no rush to implement it.

I've not watched indy car for a few years, and I found last night's race to be a bit of a yawn-fest.
Perhaps it's because I've not kept up with it, but I found it difficult to differentiate the cars/teams and who was running, where. Surprising number of familiar ex-F1 drivers though. Grosjean seemed to do okay.

The LED panels are a bit of a meme on the MP podcast, as apparently his articles on Racer.com mentioning the LEDs get the highest traffic hehe

From some angles I think the aero screen doesn't look too bad, but others it looks awkward. Either way it was effective last weekend.

NBC just showed an advert during their Indycar coverage for an NBC App called Peacock TV that as Leigh Diffy enthusiastically said you can watch Indycar coverage. But surely anyone seeing the advert is already watching Indycar coverage.....

but not Lights.

Looking forward to this, it's generally a decent race. Are those clouds on the horizon? scratchchin

I wish they'd stop changing the car liveries.
