And that Don’t even consider Dem’ Taxicab Bombers
or whether Thars a MotoGP race…
This coming weekend is absolutely a RevHead’ or
MotorHeads’ Delight, with thou Three Pillars ‘O Motorsports in action, albeit
IndyCar very Unwisely decided to go “Head-to-Head” with it’s Sports Car
Brethren! Choosing a very Unforgiving Super speedway Oval that’s littered with
some “slippery liquids” Atrocious PJ1 Traction Compound bound to make it
another overly dull race, Spew!
Actually, Thars’ four major sanctioning Bodies
going racing this weekend, without delving into RASSCAR’, whilst I haven’t
checked to “See” if MotoGP’s in action? Oh, Yes, those ultimate road racing
Kneedraggers’ are competing on the City Streets of Indonesia…
As You’ll need a Scorecard to keep track of
which Channel What’s On? Arse-sumedly the FIA World Endurance Championship is
on Motortrend TV, albeit No idea how many Hours? Then the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar
Championship should be available either on Big NBC, USA Network, Peacock or
some silly combination of All three?
Sunday’s IndyCar race is on Big NBC with MotoGP
on CNBC. And Formula 1 will be on a multitude ‘O ESPN Channels per usual over
As Always, and especially this weekend, Check
your local listings for Times and Places!
First up, and I’ve got No idea how or if there
will be any side effects for G-Drive Racing, the only Russian Flagged Sports
Cars competitors I know of, who I’m fairly certain compete in both of the premiere
Although the FIA’s World endurance Championship
is hosting a season’s Prologue at Sebring from March 12-13th, ahead
of it’s season opening 1,000 miles Sebring race Friday, March 18th
over the Super Sebring weekend.
So presumably All of Yuhs Diehard Sports Car Aficionados
will know if there’s any “Knock-on” effects over Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine adversely
effecting G-Drive or any Russian competitors before Friday’s Season Opener at
Ironically on March 6th, the very
same day that the Haas F1 Team announced it’s immediate termination of it’s contracts
with title sponsor Uralkali and Nikita Mazepin. Fellow Russian Driver Roman
Rusinov announced via his Instagram account that He was unwilling to sign the
FIA’s Neutrality Clause Document, and that G-Drive Racing was withdrawing from
the World Endurance Championship and (ELMS) European Le Mans Series with
As this led to the ACO reopening it’s Entry list
for Applicants for this year’s 24 Heurs du Mans and ELMS for a 48 Hour period
between March 7-9, with revised Entry lists to be announced later.
Believe I read via Racer’s Sports Car section
awhile ago there’s 39 entries slated for this season’s WEC campaign. With the
top flight Hypercars consisting of either a meager three or four entries?
The reigning champions Toyota Gazoo Racing return
with their All conquering two car GR010 V-6 turbo Hypercars squad, with Alpine
continuing with it’s Grandfathered LMP1 Spec A480 normally aspirated Gibson V-8.
Whilst there’s a single car Scuderia Glickenhaus 007 LMH V-6 turbo entry, listed
with Ryan Briscoe as one of it’s drivers,. Arse-sumedly contesting the entire season?
But we do know that the unique brace ‘O Werks’
Peugeot 9X8 Prototypes won’t race in anger until after Le Mans, with scuttlebutt
suggesting that the July 10th Six Hours of Monza could be their
While I believe this will be one of the final times
to see Corvette C8.R Big Boyz’ GTE Pro racecar in action Stateside. Since I’m
Arse-suming’ the FIA/ACO is keeping this minnowesqe GT Class unchanged thru
2023, or around until 2024? Since surely we’ll See some sort of similar class
restructuring a la GTD Pro Across thou Puddle eventually.
Then just a Dozen Hours later on Saturday, March
19th, IMSA will host it’s annual 12 Hours of Sebring which saw the
likes of Action Express Racing, Chip Ganassi Racing, Meyer Shank Racing and
Vasser Sullivan Racing All scrambling to find replacement drivers for their
originally slated contingent of Moonlighting IndyCar Drivers, since Dallas Fort
Worth and Florida are too Far away to cycle back ‘N forth!
Obviously, A.J. Foyt Racing will have finally
revealed publicly who’ll be driving it’s third #11 entry on the Oval portions
of the calendar, since they’ll need somebody for Texas Motor Speedway (TMS)
this Sunday. As the Odds on favourite is J.R. Hildebrand.
As Hopefully this will be the one and Only time
IndyCar foolishly decides to Clash with the traditional March 12 Hours of Sebring
race weekend date. As it’s just plain Stupid!
Look, I get Indy Cars wanting to be on Network
TV, but are they just Cowtowing to TMS? Since most likely it’ll be another One Groove
Slip-Slide All Skate race with how many viewers watching? As I think this is
the final year of Texas’s current contract?
Formula 1 Host it’s Season Opener at Bahrain,
with MotoGP’s second round taking place in Indonesia, and is it just Mwah? Or “Isn’t
it Ironic?” that IndyCar, F1 and MotoGP
are All being shown on Sunday. Not to mention that I think MotoGP’s going Head-to-Head
with IndyCar’s on Comcast’s third TV Network…
As I’m simply getting totally Knackered from typing All of this and will preview Formula 1 and MotoGP later. So enjoy the races Everybody!
