    The Indycar season will kick off tomorrow night at Texas.

    Qualifying and the race will all take place on Saturday with live coverage on Sky Sports F1.

    Expect Scott Dixon at Ganassi,Rossi at Andretti and the Penske trio to fight for the championship.

    As an aside the Indy lights season has been cancelled for 2020.

    Looking forward to it I have to say. Colton Herta could be one too watch. He had some impressive performances last year.

    Don't suppose IndyCar are livestreaming on YouTube this year? Texas is always an exciting watch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,442 ✭✭✭ Infoanon


    Qualifying live on Sky Sports Main Event and F1 with the race live on Sky Sports Mix .

    Aeroscreen looks ok on the Indy cars

    I really hate saying it at all but I'm not delighted that they're starting the season at Texas. At least it's a shortened race.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,442 ✭✭✭ Infoanon


    Newgarden on pole - time to go racing - Rossi put to the back of the grid following electricAl issues

    Grand, I was expecting pack racing so I feel a lot more comfortable watching this. :P Pity for the 2 rookies, looked like he had it saved and it just broke again.


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,922 ✭✭✭✭ Buttonftw


    Dixon's just in another league tonight.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,087 ✭✭✭ TheChrisD

    Jaysis I hadn't realized Scott Dixon was 47 years old.

    Conor Daly started 8th up to 7th. Interested to see how he does.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,399 ✭✭✭ Charlie-Bravo


    I was surprised to read your post that Dixon was 47, and I said, jaysis fair fecks to him but.... :pac: the lads on the TV said he's turning 40 soon.

    Absolute brainfart on my part. I've just copped the 47 in brackets was his wins. Whoops :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,442 ✭✭✭ Infoanon


    Dominant victory today - Power really dropped off.

    As an aside Alonso and Scott Mc Laughlin where originally due to race at the Indy road course !
    Also will this be the first of many Indycar / Nascar double headers ?

    What's the tube that comes out the top of their helmets do!?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,585 ✭✭✭ deafroadrunner

    Feeds air into the helmet I think.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,399 ✭✭✭ Charlie-Bravo


    Yes, feeds air into the helmet by a fan. It gets very hot in the cockpit since the aeroscreen was introduced.

  • Registered Users Posts: 25,922 ✭✭✭✭ Buttonftw


    Ugh, checked the start time an hour beforehand and completely forgot about it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,442 ✭✭✭ Infoanon


    Dixon with 3 from 3 now
    Considering that Scott normally becomes stronger iduring the season - close though - Penske pit errors don't happen that often


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,442 ✭✭✭ Infoanon


    Pato O Ward on pole for race 2 today


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,585 ✭✭✭ deafroadrunner


    Be interesting to see if Dixon can make it 4 wins today. Has to nailed on to win championship now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,399 ✭✭✭ Charlie-Bravo


    What a messy start. Very experienced drivers out early.

    What channel you watching it on? Hasn't started on sky sports yet, must be a delayed start


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,399 ✭✭✭ Charlie-Bravo


    Oh yeah, I forgot, it's a delayed start on Sky. I won't chat anymore as I don't want to spoil it.
