I di find it a bit ridiculous that there was stuff on the track that made the whole track unusable, this is supposed to be a big series, yet they are being made to run on a track where they can only use half of it!

Sorry but it makes the thing look a bit, no very amateur!

Yes agree. Reminded me a bit of the old Scalextric “skid chicane” - you didn’t mess with that little baby...

TMS has been messed with over the years to help NASCAR and Eddie Gossage has literally ended up scraping the barrel by using traction compound (used in drag racing) to help glue the cars to use the upper lanes. The problem is that the stuff is completely unsuitable to Indycar, not just NASCAR (even though it works on other tracks).
