Alright, I stuck my head out to start an IndyCar "Personnel Thread", since we have some really interesting team mate (and pseudo-team mate) battles going this year, particularly Dixon vs. Rosenqvist and Pato vs. Colton.

 

If that other series can have 11 of these threads, we can have at least 1, too, right?

 

Please chime in:

Colton Herta - not even a Young American,  just an 18-year-old American!

I wonder what Newgarden’s next moniker will be,

 

Not as young American

Not the youngest American

American

Younger than most Americans ...

Since he has one more championship than most of his U.S. peers we can start there.  Indy 500 Champ next?

I love this picture, but at another level, this just seems SO wrong . . .  

 

OTOH, proof positive TK's not a rubberphobe.

A hug is fine, but if he was spooning, I would be concerned.

Sitting in a tyre like that is so uncomfortable. The inner edges aren’t soft.

Please spare us your own version of this photo shoot, PAYR (sounds like you have experience sitting on/in tires in the buff)  :lol:  :lol:

 

Interesting these guys' "nude" photos exist, and went relatively unnoticed (at least I had never seen them before), but Vicky Piria's "sexy" photo triggered a discussion in the W-Series thread...

He'll still be the young American
Didnt the comms come up with something for Colton at COTA. Cannot remember it right now though.
Which I realize is a bad start for a nickname.

In the topic of nicknames, do we accept Pato as The Young Mexican even though he's actually the only Mexican?

But this IndyCar drivers have bulbous arses to cushion from the hardness of race seats. I'm sure that protects him against inner edges of any sort.

Going to be a good weekend of IndyCar, Wrestlemania, Supercars, WTCR, Asian GT...

I'm pretty much unable to do any OPs until the latter half of the summer, when the season starts winding down. By then my Notes document with all my stupid Indycar jokes that fly into my head during the day will have reached critical mass and a slight activation energy will cause them to spontaneously assemble into an OP of barely substandard quality.

And I think Pato being christened as The Lone Mexican or The Only Mexican works. I'll start calling him TOM. :p

Haha for the most part its highlights on the TV while bumbling round the house doing odds and ends, but F1, FE and Indycar have become my live watching trio. I have a very understanding wife, she knows it keeps me quiet if I'm watching the cars. An even more understanding toddler for letting me borrow the TV.

Traditionally each car is a "team" based around the driver.  Multiple car owners only started appearing in the in the more modern era.  The history of the sport is based on single drivers contesting the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race in particular.

There is a manufacturer's championship, the top two Chevy / Honda finishers' drivers points are counted after each event.

So I’m here in Cozumel Mexico this week and met some ‘Patistas’ at a bar tonight. They’re rich as hell and are going to all his races.
Somehow they’ve got credentials for the whole series.

I told them how impressive he was and they mentioned that Carlin may just up the ante as they have some engineers and strategists knocking on their door to work with him !!!
