Anybody else like this series? 

 

The guys at "The Race" are doing live streams on youtube .... Race 2 is currently on.

I really enjoy this series and very happy for Tsuboi's first win. Great opportunity for Cassidy as well today. Proper oldschool circuit. What's not to love ?

Agreed... that was a proper old school race - fascinating and absorbing.

 

The next one is on 18 October ..... they even have a properly spaced out calendar!

I think it starts at 05:55 BST. Or 13:55 local time: https://superformula...round3#section1 But you could always jump back an hour on Youtube...

Cassidy, Fenestraz and Sette Câmara are on the entry list.

Looks like the race will start in 15 minutes or so.

If you don't like the commentary style on Youtube (I do) there's another English broadcast on motorsport.tv: https://www.motorspo...sugo-race/30834

I adore these cars. Nick is still one of the very best drivers on the planet that somehow is not in an F1 car.

And cool to see Hirakawa have a strong season.

 

Also this track is cool as always. Nice one.

Dixon wins Petit Le Mans.

SVG wins Bathurst.

Cassidy wins SF.

 

What a great few hours for Kiwi drivers.

Those non-stabilized onboards looks awesome

Why Cassidy is still in the shadows is one of the great mysteries of the modern age, along with why anyone cares about the Kardashians. 

 

Red Bull need a stronger #2.  Why not Cassidy? 

Alpha Tauri need someone to replace their inconsistent Russian.  Why not Cassidy?

Haas needs a driver who doesn't throw it away every race.  Why not Cassidy? 

Alfa Romeo need a driver who...well, they just need a driver instead of a senior citizen and a token Italian.  Why not Cassidy?

Mercedes needs someone to replace their flawed piece of Finnish software.  Why not Cassidy?

Racing Point need a strong newcomer instead of a Ferrari cast-off or a family favourite.  Why not Cassidy?

 

And then there is Indycar who need a new Kiwi to succeed their current but ageing one.  Why not Cassidy?

 

Or maybe he is happy in Japan and really loves sushi and miso.

That is something, but it basically ends any hopes of anything better for Cassidy.  There is no coming back from electric racing.

Rosenqvist went from Mahindra in FE to Ganassi in IndyCar, so no.

Cassidy is very fast... the series is very good. Cars look and sound nice, tracks are awesome. Thanks to THE RACE I have managed to enjoy several races.

Personally I don’t understand why he was never given a shot with Toyota in LMP1. Great record in single seaters and Super GT. Thought he would be ideal for that role.

Also, DaCosta is testing in Indy right this week, right?

As much as I don't want it to be true and I think Indycar deserves more respect, to me it seems like FE is still closer to an F1 drive than that Indycar

I agree with you and believe that the Formula E status will grow even more in the next years.
