Sao Paolo IndyCar Blues

So, I’m NOT gonna rip the racetrack, designer or city for Sao Paolo, Brazil’s Indy Car Qualifying debacle that has just occurred due to the extremely slippy concrete surface of the Sambadromo super special straightaway spectator bowl... Try sayin’ that fast five times, eh? And although the event seems somewhat poorly planned, take into consideration that it’s a condensed 2-day schedule along with taking place in a city of 12 million people, which would be like shutting down traffic in New York say on a Friday night!

But I am gonna RIP IndyCar.com... As not only have they made their website extremely DIFFICULT to navigate for Mwah... Along with having a myriad of Technical Difficulties today, BUTT! They couldn’t even post the CORRECT qualifying time... Claiming it begun at "3:33SP"PM New York Time... (3:30 ET) Which is apparently in a different time zone then Eastern Time? As thanks to “Mr. CHiPs” (Chris Estrada) who got up early today to bring us live coverage of the Indy Car Festiva in South Americana via his Indy Racing Revolution website which has returned to the Blogosphere... Clued me into the fact that the supposed qualifying would actually begin at 10:30AM out here on the West Coast instead of 12:30PM per IndyCar, so you may wanna check him out for further updates...

As the plan now is for grinders to come in and Diamond-grind the billiard table smooth concrete surface this evening, with qualifying slated for 8:30AM ET, as you’ll need to follow the bouncing ball to find it in the either...

And let’s hope Dario Franchitti’s words aren’t prophetic of the race after having claimed that the course was better suited for Ricky Carmichael, you know the ex-AMA Supercross legend...
