Love the Pfaff plaid. Most distinctive livery in the series.

I thought there was a loose wheel on #67 the way he was wiggling.

Anybody else thinking Penske’s been trolling the BoP all year...?

Would not be surprised, now that they have the bugs worked out. They have to be favorites for Petit.

Those pesky dangers associated with racing; they better cancel the race. Maybe even the series, eh?

With texting and driving you don’t have time to look when you change lanes... :rolleyes:

 

How’s the battery? Are we there yet?  That concept they showed for 2024 looks interesting.

More hoping Newgarden qualifies up front, because the first lap may be interesting again, but thanks for chiming in.

Maybe.

 

Since we've wandered a bit off-topic, and until the IndyCar at Laguna Seca thread arrives, I can see Rossi and Pagenaud going for it, because with double points there's nothing to lose, Newgarden playing for points out of an abundance of caution, but not getting the win, Dixon winning because everybody else in the hunt gets tight, Power winning because you never discount the man on a natural terrain road course, and Hinch winning because for once he makes it out of the first lap kerfluffle that takes out four Honda-powered cars.

 

YMMV.

 

:D

The IndyCar promos that NBC ran during the Laguna Seca IMSA race only featured Newgarden, Pagenaud and Rossi.

From some angles, I would not know that was a Corvette.

 

I'm bummed to see the livery is a little more generic too. Nothing stands out like yellow.

The #3 is supposed to be yellow with silver accents.  The #4 in the pictures is evidently meant as an homage to the original Sting Ray racer and the '70's Aerovette show car, which famously were both silver.  But my first thought was the same--not enough yellow.

I watched it again and there is no labeling on the bottle. The shape is common to number of sauces, but not Tabasco. I’ll look for Clancy’s Fancy, but it does not appear to be available at my local stores.

Colin Braun fast in the Nissan DPi. Imagine if CORE went out with a Petit Victory?

I was planning on returning but had to cancel about three months ago. Have to catch it on tape delay, or whatever we call digital recording.
