The Indy Cars are in action this weekend. Man, do those words sound good. So do the cars. The only downside is the fact that it occurs on a temporary street circuit. That makes what you will see if you stay up on Saturday night a really fast parade. Or maybe not.
Surfers Paradise offers other diversions for Aussies and others who attend, including consumption of a great deal of alcohol, varying degrees of nudity on balconies, and other such youthful hi-jinks geared toward youth.
The racing may actually be better than usual because there is no reason to be conservative. It will be racing for the sake of racing. Dario is back as well, Wheldon goes for Panther and Vitor Miera runs with the Foyt team.
Watching practice online yesterday was a giant pain in the arse and I have about the most bandwidth and speed you can get with Verizon FIOS. Good thing the broadcast ‘partner’ is featuring this exciting event prominently across their platform. Oh wait. ‘Partner?’ LOL. It’s on ESPN Classic. Ooh baby. NASCAR had best watch its back.
About the funniest part of the online pixelation interruption fest yesterday was a comment that ‘pulled pork’ has a far different meaning in Australia than it does in North Carolina.
All in all it is difficult to complain. We all get to see the Indy Cars one more time before the long winter sets in. The 2009 season should be great!
