Open Wheel Merry-go-Round

Whale, its that time of the season, as in almost time for the ‘Big Boyz to go racin’ again… And I simply cannot keep up with the Hyper-drive flurry of Open Wheel Racing Announcements, namely Driver signings…

Sheez! How do these guys do it? As Ryan over at Junior Open Wheel Talent is busy keeping his finger on the pulse of Indy Lights announcements, plus his new Ladder Report, along with keeping tabs of all the various Junior Formulae…

While Up North Eh! The ‘CAM WOW! Of The Other Side has been keeping busy breaking news on the latest Indy Car Gluteus Maximums numbers of all the various Team/Driver line-ups, not to mention where I first read about the new BAT Project, which I’m dubbing the 5th Wheel for the New & Improved 2012 Indy Car chassis search…

Meanwhile Mr. Earle previously posted a Headcount story over at My Name is IRL. Although I’m a little worried about his paying Homage to Godzilla… Something to do with Heideki Mutoh being confirmed at the esteemed ICS Firm of Newman Haas Lanigan Racing? While thinking about Takuma Sato’s confirmation at KV Racing Technology for reasons unknown made me start humming that ‘80’s Fad song Turning Japanese, I really think So? Which fortunately yesterday’s Teleconference musak cleared outta my head!

NO Word on whether or not “CAM WOW ‘N Mr. Earle are involved in a friendly round of who’s Driving What – Where, Pop goes the Driver game, which I think is somewhat akin to some ‘lil ‘Ol Hockey game recently played between USA ‘N Canada… Oh Never Mind!

Yet, interestingly Jan “Van Hagar” Heylen is listed as the pilot of the No. 17 Team E Indy Lights car… Does anybody know who this Team is? While Brian Herta Autosport (BHA) is now a confirmed two car entity with a single I500 entry this May, as Brian’s co-owner’s name Steve Newey is driving me crazy, since I know I know the name, from F1? I can’t seem to recall exactly what his CV is? While I’m most entertained by the new Team Cake Motorsports, which apparently is in conjunction with Wayne Taylor Racing, as in Sports Car fame…

Whale upon closer inspection, its actually Cape Motorsports, with Gustavo Yacaman behind the wheel of the No. 10, as I’m guessing that Cape has something to do with Wayne Taylor’s S. African roots…

Welcome to Team E

Meanwhile, NO word on whether or not the Indy Car Driver’s are busy working’ on their Tan’s or busy makin’ Snowmen Down South in Sweet Home Alabama…

OOPS!
Just read Ryan’s post about Gustavo Yacaman’s signing and its actually a collaboration between Dominic and Nicholas Cape And Wayne Taylor; Sorry ‘bout that Dominic & Nicholas…

  1. It has indeed been a busy few weeks. The increase in announcements is quite encouraging though, let's hope it continues!
