Bottom post of the previous page:

Oooof. That was a bit more than a brush. I liked the way that he steered away from the inside wall so it wouldnt get damaged. :whistling:

So, who will be #34 when qualy is done and dusted.... who will be watching from the stands or pitlane?

And now its Ericsson's turn..... he chose turn 4 though

He didnt manage to avoid a second hit on the inside, or indeed a third hit and he ended up against the pit wall entrance barrier but has been released with an all clear from the medics. The #28 car didnt fare so well though and he will need to resort to a back up chassis.

Another session with an early ending thanks to wet stuff falling from the sky. Pato from Scotty Mac and Alex Palou at the pointy end.


TIMES FOR THURSDAY





Turn up the wick time for the next session.... Its Fast Friday.... (even if its Saturday down here.)

Awesome effort by Rinus to come back and grab the F12.

Ericssons backup car is dogshit - and Rahal fighting to survive again. Siegel and Legge also in the last row shootout. I think Siegel is fucked though.

Power
McLaughlin
Newgarden
Rossi
Kirkwood
Larson (good job!)
Rosenqvist
Ferrucci
Sato
O'Ward
Veekay
RHR

is your top-12.

Ericsson lifted a lap too early in his run in this one-hour last chance qualifying session.

Am guessing he’s been tested for concussion properly? Very odd mistake to make.

Peak Indy 500, and we are a week away from the race.

Siegel was up against it given he was running a backup that was a street / road track car. Luckily for Rahal who was doinghis best to go back to back DNQ at Indy.

A bit odd that Marcus seemed to lose count of the laps and went into slowdown lap mode on the 4th lap. Bad comms or a bit of a bit of 'inner confusion after his hefty brain rattling bang during the week. :idunno:

Anyway a list of the 33 that made it. How strong do Penske look? Has someone checked their P2P software? :suspicious: :wink:

All we need is for the Chevy motors to hang together and hopefully they fix their Plenum Chamber issues that caused the dramas.
