  1. S'up, guys. Haven't been around here in a while! Surprised to see this thread at the top on my first visit in 2 years...
  2. Jason Dial, president & CEO of Circuit of the Americas, is out http://autoweek.com/article/formula-one/exclusive-jason-dial-president-and-ceo-circuit-americas-out?utm_source=RacingDaily20151103&utm_medium=enewsletter&utm_term=arrows-top&utm_content=body&utm_campaign=awracingdaily Dial was hired two years ago from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he was the marketing director, to be the track president, assisting CEO Steve Sexton. A month later, Sexton was out, and Dial assumed the CEO title. I think we could all see the writing on the wall when Epstein hired Rittenberry to be the "Chief Strategy Officer", whatever that is. The revolving door continues to spin away at COTA.
  3. Negotiations fall through in potential COTA sale: http://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/negotiations-fall-through-in-potential-cota-deal/
  4. Sad news y'all... Jules Bianchi has succumbed to injuries he sustained in the 2014 Japanese GP. #ForzaJules http://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/jules-bianchi-19892015
  5. Yep...the decisions taken in order to pander to so-called 'green' groups, among other decisions of course, have been disastrous for the sport. The idea that F1 needs to be 'road-relevant' is an utter myth.
  6. Two U.S. teams on the F1 grid in 2016? It could happen http://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/two-us-teams-on-the-f1-grid-in-2016-it-could-happen/ Promoter Tavo Hellmund and financier James Carney head US-based investment group looking to buy a Formula 1 team. Oh, and BTW, yet another in a long parade of key figures leaving COTA as ex-IMS exec and COTA GM/Senior VP Mel Harder was fired a few weeks ago. Position eliminated. Not good.
  7. LOL, yeah...2 of my 3 drivers & 2 of my cars were out before the end of the first lap. Then Max retired later to leave me driverless. Unreal.
  8. Oof. Looks like there may be more problems looming for COTA. 'Is America's only Formula One track in trouble?' http://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/is-america-s-only-formula-one-track-in-trouble/
  9. BTW, I took a couple of other pics at that RBR demo that y'all might like... https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1JVFtUCYAAxu11.jpg:large https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1JSaQsCIAAB4mD.jpg:large
  10. Y mañana @movistar_F1 se desplaza a Woking para la presentación de @alo_oficial como piloto de @McLarenF1. Su compañero será @JensonButton. According to Movistar's Ernest Riveras (Movistar TV Sporting Content Manager), Movistar F1 is going to Woking for the official presentation of Alonso, whose teammate will be Jenson Button. Also, if I'm reading his other tweets right, he says Alonso was one of the people pushing for Button.
  11. I got DC to get his Horns Up again... https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1LPse6IAAESVTO.jpg
  12. Took a couple of pics at the Red Bull Demo downtown today... https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1JVFtUCYAAxu11.jpg https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1JSaQsCIAAB4mD.jpg
  13. So...I guess Kvyat is Dutch now. Just wow. SMH COTA. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/14077364/Links/f1/kvyat.png
  14. They're 9 teams now, right? 27 cars seems a bit much. Would think they'd prefer 8 teams with 3 each. BTW, I had to laugh at the NASCAR finish yesterday. If it was F1 you can bet Dale Jr would have had a bad restart so Gordon could have gotten a free pass in the Championship. I think just the top teams would be bringing 3 cars.
  15. Yep. For next year. A few people have been saying this was coming (Parr, Kaltenborn, Montezemolo), but nobody wanted to hear it.
