I honestly could not understand the times of practice and the race. 10 pm? They said it was because of logistics in the city during rush hour and also so people could watch it at 6 am in Europe?
I wonder when race promoters are going to realize that temporary race courses fail probably 95% of the time. I have no idea why they think racing in the streets is better than a natural road course like Watkins Glen, Mid Ohio or Road America. They are just not located by major cities for a reason.
Kevin, be thankful the masses don't watch the short tracks or it would turn in to what we have now with F1 and NASCAR.
