NOLA – Sunday – Race Spoiler/Notes

By Joe Berkemeier The cars got a quick 5 minute warmup around 1:25pm, with much of the usual pre-race activities not done on the track. After the warmup, the cars lined up on the grid.

NOLA – Sunday – 12:45pm

By Joe Berkemeier A quick weather update: The weather has cleared significantly and the rain has also let up. Track drying efforts have begun. One team owner told us that the estimated time to dry the track was 90 minutes, so perhaps this race will start “on time” or very close to on time since…

NOLA – Sunday – Morning Warmup Cancelled

By Steve Wittich and Joe Berkemeier The morning warm-up ended up being cancelled due to the weather conditions.

By Joe Berkemeier Qualifying finally rolled off at 5pm after a weather delay and the surprises and controversy started right away.

    • Long Beach’s Grand Prix report is $150K worth of obvious points
      That report was made public Monday afternoon, and it’s loaded with an absence of surprises, although there are a few bits of weirdness involved. Rather than submit what KPMG said would be an ideal computer-aided design plan for the proposed F1 track that would identify all mandatory components required following FIA (the governing body of […]
    • Here’s who won the race between Formula 1 and IndyCar in Long Beach
      In October last year the city released a request for proposals seeking “an open-wheel auto racing format” to run the annual Grand Prix event. From the start it was only a two-horse race between Michaelian and Pook. Pook, of course, was hardly a carpetbagger. He founded the Long Beach Grand Prix in 1975 and brought […]
    • Q&A: Printup talks future of WGI, IndyCar, Phish
      Everybody was excited, but I take a lot of personal interest in IndyCar. I always have. I kind of grew up in IndyCar, so I was glad that we were able to get them back. The fans themselves, for only having a little bit less than 90 days to sell the race last year, we […]
    • Rick Mears – still the ultimate pro at 65
      Over the past 20-something years writing about racing, I’ve encountered three people from whom I learn something about the art of racecar driving every time we speak for longer than five minutes. One of that trio is Rick Ravon Mears, born this day 65 years ago in Wichita, Kansas, and brought up in Bakersfield, Calif. […]
    • Memoir helps widow cope after IndyCar driver's death
      Tonya Bergeson-Dana talks with her son, Conor, about his father when he brings it up, which is often. If he’s asking the questions, she reasons, he’s ready to hear the answers. Paul Conor Dana, at age 9, knows that his father was Paul Dana, a journalist and IndyCar driver who died in March 2006 during […]
