DragonSpeed with Ben Hanley.
An announcement tomorrow. Might relate to the title of the thread based on recent talk.
No title sponsor, just the unveiling of the U.S. tv schedule.
Yeah. Not really interesting. Pretty much just said everything will be happening "soon."
Excluding on an Australian race in February 2020.
Fingers crossed this comes to fruition. Would be great to have an Indycar round down here again.
More national TV races is a great thing!
I always get a chuckle out of Hinch
Apparently big news coming out in just over half an hour... title sponsor?
Also, anyone know if testing times will be shown. Itching to get any glimpse of the 2019 season now that the cars are finally back out on track
That's what all the reports say this week.
Cellular companies have a thing with motorsports, I see.
I'm following IndyCar this year. Haven't watched a full season but after watching the Sonoma race I want to.
Sonoma's usually one of the worse races of the year. It's not on this year so expect even better races.
They're not a cellular company, they're an IT and Data company.
That gives me optimism compared to NASCAR.
My bad, tech companies then.
NTT should be a good partner for IndyCar. Top 5 global tech giant earning an average of $106 billion a year. A massive reach for IndyCar to tap into.
Where did you get that info from? I'm guessing a certain Forbes article, because I'm seeing revenue that the company themselves report as 14.6 billion USD.
IndyCar is far more consistent than NASCAR when it comes to putting on good races. Granted there are still dull races, but they are much fewer and far between than NASCAR.
That's just the Data subsidiary (which is what sponsors Ganassi), it's the parent company themselves that's funding the title sponsorship.
From what you posted the they may have mixed it up because it's interesting that the income is 15 billion for 2018 which is slightly up from the 2016 number I gave. The entire revenue before any expenses are taken in though in the link you give is more in line with the Forbes report, which is about 100 billion USD.
I have always been into IndyCar. So there's no way I'm going to miss out on any action this upcoming season. Bring on the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series season!
Arrow is expanding their sponsorship of SPM and will be the teams title sponsor.
Updated the details in the OP.
Great to see Indycar doing so well once again! Shame that the TV Company that has the broadcast rights to Indycar here in Brazil just treats it like trash... Wish it got sold to ESPN or Fox Sports around here.
Also, Will Power was the Oval champions last season. If anyone got on a coma at the end of 2014 and woke up today and found about that, probably that person would fall back on the coma again.
Today, would you guys make any changes to calendar? I would get rid of the Detroit double header and try to replace it with Sonoma and Watkins Glen tbh. Also would try to bring any of the 2 mile ovals (Michigan or Auto Club) and maybe the Milwaukee Mile since it's has been saved. The rest of the calendar I'm pretty much fine with it.
The largest issue with the calendar is that most of the venues you listed want October dates. IndyCar refuses to run past early September, which I agree with as there's a lot that begins sports wise in that time in the U.S. Auto Club and Sonoma both want a finale race. Michigan isn't hardly interested at all. And Watkins Glen is just the odd race out. Belle Isle, as much as people don't like it, is one of the healthier races for the series.
I know the issue with the calendar going past September, which I agree as well. Shame that Indy has to leave them out because of those reasons.
Personally, I feel like IndyCar does not want to go to Fontana or Michigan. They designed the current oval package to avoid pack races like what we saw from 2015 to 2017. Sonoma, on top of wanting a finale race, was not improving in ticket sales, and outside of last year was very lackluster to say the very least. Milwaukee, no matter where you put it, is going to be overshadowed by Road America and rightfully so. If I were to choose a race to enter the IndyCar calendar, on top of the potential Australian race in February 2020, I'd likely go with a track like Homestead or Richmond in late February or early March. Tracks that would make sense in a time slot that makes the most sense for IndyCar moving forward.
SPM have a car for Robert when he's ready
That was confirmed ages ago back in October when they announced Ericsson. https://spmindycar.com/2018/10/30/marcus-ericsson-joins-spm-for-2019-season/
It's still cool that they prepped a car and invited him to the announcement.
I'm not disputing that.
Carlin news. Chilton Full-Time. Kimball not.
