Little Old Ladies

Filed under: The Disciple Blogs — Disciple of INDYCAR @ 12:36 pm

One of the reasons silly season is so much fun is because lots of normally rational people turn into gossiping old ladies at a church social. It is really rather entertaining. Here are two of the more interesting rumors making the rounds:

 

-Sebastien Bourdais may be on the verge of losing his F-1 drive on the Toro Rosso B-Team, and may join the Indy Car Series. I would probably welcome him as would everyone in Indy Racing, but I would hold his feet to the fire regarding critical comments he has made in the past between his champcar years and his time in F-1. I once saw the guy go from worst to first on a temporary circuit in the parking lot of the Pepsi Center in Denver when champcar was renting that facility to race in front of a sparse crowd. His attempts at intimidation in his one and only Indy 500 appearance ended predictably in the wall. Perhaps next time he will arrive with a bit more respect. The Indy Car Series always likes good drivers, especially now that Marty has evidently been unceremoniously shown the exit.

 

 -The Milwaukee Mile is on its last legs. Folks blame mismanagement, lack of interest and other such excuses. Personally, now that it has returned to its rightful place right in back of Indy, all is right. We can only hope that management gets itself righted and that Indy Cars will be back for decades. That track predates almost all of the rest. It would be a shame for it to go the way of Nazareth.
