Bye Bye Indy 2016

Preliminary Provisional schedule came out,

No, I hope they never go back there.

It's a shit track for anything but the Indy 500.

The layout makes me want to rip my eyes out of my head.

so it's true...bummer.

i was talking to a guy that works for FS1 after the race on Sunday, he told me that indy wasn't happening in 2016. i didn't want to spread rumors incase it wasn't true, but looks like it is.

bummer.

i asked, well wtf? does that mean laguna will be back? he then said "that'll never happen."

1 US race...where else are they gonna have one? fuck...

1. Qatar
2. Austin

17 circuits have contracts for 2016.
so it leaves room for 1 or 2 more to be finalized.

You should have posted. What's the point of inside info if you don't share it????

I still think Laguna will come back eventually...one day...many years from now...possibly.

Road Atlanta would be great for motorcycles...

Anyone got any info on the track in Austria? Really interested in visiting there, motoGP would be an added bonus.

Countryside is lovely as is the surrounding area. Worth visiting.

Red Bull Ring is a shell of it's original layout; the Osterreichring. Absolutely legendary track. In fairness to Red Bull, Didi wanted to restore the old circuit, but couldn't obtain the permits. With that said, on a bike, the turn 7 thru 8 complex before the main straight is terrifying.

Modern track layout:



Old layout:
