INDYCAR GrandPrix of Sonoma – Quick Race Report

By Patrick Stephan As usual, this race report is not edited. We type it as the race runs and then hit send at the end, please forgive typos. INDYCAR delayed the command (very memorably done by MC Hammer) to 3:39pm local time as we all waited for the NASCAR race in Vegas to finish. The…

INDYCAR Grand Prix Of Sonoma – Sunday – noon – Anatomy of a pole lap and a TSO sponsored midget racer

By Steve Wittich Ryan Hunter-Reay’s pole-winning lap for the 2018 INDYCAR Grand Prix Of Sonoma was 2.1 seconds slower than Josef Newgarden’s pole lap from 2017. However, that doesn’t mean things are more comfortable for the drivers. Depending on who you ask, the universal aero kits being used this season have 30% to 40% less…

Sonoma Saturday Final!

By Patrick Stephan (@TSO_Patrick) Alright alright alright! That was an entertaining Firestone Fast 6 Qualifying. But, before I get to to that, I owe you my social report from Friday night, which isn’t overly long, but still a lot of fun. I took advantage of Steve’s presence here and booked out of the track around…

Sonoma Qualifying Report!

By Patrick Stephan (@TSO_Patrick) The temperatures for the final qualifying session of 2018 were 71 ambient, 103 track. The wind speed indicator says its 7mph, not sure I believe that. It said 10mph this morning and it’s gotten way windier this afternoon. The direction seems to be the same though as it’s a tail wind…

Sonoma Saturday Practice #3 Results and Assorted Notes on Carlin, Fernando, Coyne, and Others!

By Patrick Stephan and Steve Wittich Thanks to Steve for getting up extra early today and sending out today’s open. Not that I really slept in, but I think he’s on Eastern Time while I’m working off Mountain – all while we are both really in Pacific Time (Eastern – 3). We’ve both been out…

    • 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 […]
