This is so exciting already.....when is Paul Tracy going to burst the seams on his suit. I haven't seem him move yet, that could be the trigger.

Nope I genuinely didn't get a word of that. I just heard 'NTT', 'Indycar', 'technology' and 'next year' many times.

When does the race actually start? I tried to watch it a few weeks back but between the soldiers, the flypasts and the national anthem I'd lost interest

It's starts after the marching band has gone past 3 times, just after the 4th flypast and 2nd song, just after the 5 gun salute.

Ps. When they release the balloons.

I have to say this build up is a heck of a lot more exciting than the F1 race we just saw from Singapore, ok it’s all very ‘USA’ but it’s building up to be a good race.

And how good to see mr motor racing Mario Andretti out driving the 2 seater?

Don't usually watch much IndyCar but this is some enjoyable stuff.

Plus the Cork screw looks as mental as ever.

I can put up with "Murica!!", the anthems and fly overs etc actually make a decent build up to the crap celebrity F1 thinks we wanna see.

But the ad's have killed it for me. Tried following this season, But 5 minutes of ads of lap 5 of a 90 lap race, then more ads through lap 11-14 during pit window so you have no idea where any body is, Then an advert for some crap cop show when you come back from ads. Then 6 laps of racing before more ads.

Americans can keep it, Its a shame indycar have cracked it in terms of a racing series, But I aint gonna bother next season.

Correct not seen a single add break the coverage has been fantastic so far. The cars sound great, what an awesome track it’s like a cross between Brands, Bathurst and Cadwell!
