Wow, racing is upon us...the first Champ Car (CART) race of the season is tomorrow in St. Petersburg. Now I don't have to watch all of the tin-top races. F1. Well, I think the rules changes are a good thing. I want to see some better racing. Of course some Ferrari fans will say it is all sour grapes, but the fact is that F1 is getting into a financially precarious position, and the lack of competiveness isn't going to help that in the long run. Heck, I still think Ferrari will win easily this year, but the changes in qualifying, practice, and pre-race are going to make things real interesting. I might go back to watching all of the races (I quit that habit last year). Champ Car. Some very talented rookies, no traction control, and a more positive vibe than last year makes this year look like it could be the most fun season in a while. The talent of Ganassi and Green will be missed but the politics will not. It was exciting to see Bourdais make his first rookie debut race pole since Mansell. This guy could be the next Michael Schumacher, and I'm not just talking about racing...his personality will fit right in with F1 as well. With Tracy next to him and Carpentier behind him, I can't wait to see what happens at the first turn tomorrow! IndyCar (IRL). Honda money, Toyota money. Can Chevy keep up? And if they can't, will the IRL do something to try and level the field without pissing off the Pacific rim competition? I honestly don't think Panther/Hornisch have a chance this year. Ganassi will hit hard with more drivers and much more money in this series than ever. Team Green without Barry Green and Kool isn't the same IMO, but Kanaan and Franchitti are true assets. Andretti will be sulking around too much for my taste, as usual. Is the little guy getting squeezed out? I was a bit surprised to see Sarah Fisher still not having enough money to run all races. Let's go racing!
