COMMENT: 7 & 8 July 2018 – British GP & Iowa IndyCar

A really good pair of races this week!

  • F1 – British GP, Silverstone;
  • Indycar – Iowa 300, Iowa Speedway;

I must admit, being tired from not sleeping due to the ongoing heat and humidity made it hard to concentrate at times.

This blog appears late courtesy of the World Cup! I don’t usually follow football other than international tournaments and this one swept me along.

COMMENT: 1 July 2018 – Austrian GP

With the ongoing World Cup and some quite oppressive humidity here in southern England I only caught one race this past weekend.

  • F1 – Austrian GP, Red Bull Ring;

To be honest after a long run of consecutive F1 and/or IndyCar races, plus Le Mans, I’m looking forward to the summer break now.

COMMENT: 23/24 June 2018 – Paul Ricard & Elkhart Lake

Last weekend I watched just the two races:

  • F1 – French GP, Paul Ricard, Le Castellet.
  • IndyCar – Road America, Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

I also caught the 3rd BTCC race at Croft, Dan Lloyd taking a maiden win from the reverse-grid race – and apparently some bones of contention through the day amongst title contenders.

COMMENT 2/3 June 2018: Double Detroit IndyCar

These are some of the races I’ve been watching.

  • IndyCar – 2x Detroit Grands Prix (Saturday & Sunday) from Belle Isle;

It was a gloriously sunny and hot weekend here in the South West of England so I was outside for all of it. No regrets at all.

I watched these races after work from Monday to Wednesday.

I haven’t found time for the IMSA race at Belle Isle – or Mid-Ohio. Having prioritised IndyCar I haven’t had time to watch the MotoGP yet either!

COMMENT: Monaco & Indy – 26/27 May 2018

These are some of the races I’ve been watching.

  • Formula 1:  Monaco Grand Prix
  • IndyCar – Indianapolis 500

How can two totally different races have the same hallmarks? Avoid the walls. Manage the tyres. The winner is the one who hustles it best. Difference being, at Indy it looked like they were going for it.
