My son was one of these drivers, and while racing is expensive, I can assure you we’re not rich, and neither are the parents of the other teens. My son, Ayrton Ori, has been karting since 5 y/o, and went to the original Skip Barber Racing School when he was 12. Yes, 12. Driving 120 mph.

So, basically you just confirmed that no functioning Indycar version of the Deltawing was ever built or tested. It was an idea on paper, which exactly what I said. Vaporware.

So, without presenting any facts or citing sources, you’re claiming that they designed and built a Deltawing to replace Indycars at an extreme level of performance and then later redesigned and rebuilt it at a much lower level of performance as an IMSA prototype? Do you have some video or data from testing the super Read more

Chip Ganassi also funded Bill Simpson’s SG (Simpson Ganassi) nee Light football helmets, but he’s not advocating their use in Indycar. Read more

Speaking of false and made up, why don’t you disclose the number of 235mph laps the Deltawing ever completed, with any motor, in any configuration? Read more

And Paul Tracy hit 250mph in an Indycar on the backstretch at Fontana; I was talking about an average lap speed, not the top speed it ever saw, one time, on the fastest part of the fastest track it was ever driven on.

I owned a four door version in that same color, and I can personally verify that it was the second worst car ever made, after the Chevy Citation. I know picking on GM cars of this vintage is taking low hanging fruit, but listen- Shortly after I drove the car home my best friend and I commenced to investigating every

Has nobody ever read "On Wings of Eagles?" It's details the awesome op the leader of the Son Tay Raid pulled off in retirement and on H. Ross Perot's payroll.

Michael, can we get the physics on that? I'm no electrician, but my understanding is that glass isn't just a resistor, it's an insulator, and that just doesn't sound right.

I live in FL and we basically hold the U.S. license for crazy shit, but Siberia (between Tunguska, the recent meteor, etc.) is on another plane entirely with it's large scale, occasionally extraterrestrial, crazy shit.

How would one even begin to answer that? It's like asking "What's the worst thing Stalin ever did?"; you're going to have to break this down into categories; by decade, wheels driven, etc. Sure the Cadillac Cimarron is in the discussion, but Christ, GM made four other cars exactly like it at the same time with Read more

Loose wheels used to be a much bigger problem in Indycar, but I remain surprised that the sanctioning bodies have yet to fully solve this, technologically.

I'm aware, from my friend the NASA instructor, that a few sanctioning bodies do require the passenger seat to have identical safety systems to the driver, but that this is also the exception rather than the rule. My fear is that, in racing accidents, 'died instantly' is usually code for a basal skull fracture, and Read more
