It's there already
Long beach produced in a 100 minutes race almost as many full course yellow situations as Sebring in 24 hours!
I think it's definitely the wrong track to host a multi class race due to too many over tight in between walls corners and... how many cars participating? 40? 45?
There's so many awesome tracks in the US that makes very hard to understand the inclusion of this one in this series.
But should some cars be able to gain an advantage because of that ridiculous situation?Can we talk about how horrible Hindy has gotten? The dude was complaining up a storm about "passing under yellow" when the hairpin was blocked both times. Dude, look at the circumstances. Jeremy Shaw was trying to play the reasonable one but he was having none of it. Like, what are they supposed to do, just completely stop and queue up behind the blockage until everyone is removed? Ridiculous. You had cars that were trapped on the outside due to the placement of crash cars, and an open slot on the inside. Silly to just park everyone up.
Plus, if the cars stop, they're technically accident cars and the passing thing doesn't matter, iirc.
I remember the FOX commentators talking about that situation and for then, as for me personally as also for the stewards, that was a very unique awkward moment and everybody just wanted to get out of there somehow.But should some cars be able to gain an advantage because of that ridiculous situation?
My personal reaction was the same, I was wondering why they were being allowed to pass under yellow without penalty.
And the jam packed weekend. After the IMSA race there was still Indycar quali, and afterthat was the Motegi Super Drift thingy (forget the proper full name). The drift corse uses the back straight, turns 9-11, and the very start of the front straight.Unfortunately the length is kinda limited by the city I think.
Yes they were...and in race 2 they had to deal with a busted fire hydrant.And the jam packed weekend.

So I don't think its a noise thing, or road closure thing, as the drift event goes well into the night, like 9 or 10 o-clock at least.
Was PWC there this year as well? Even more stuff to jam into the schedule
