:( The place scares the hell out of me, but we need more than one super speedway on the calendar.

Having 6 out of 18 races being ovals is nice - I think that's the right balance overall. Just a pity that two of them are doubleheaders.

That said ... THE MILE!!!!!!!!!!!

Indeed a great driver line up.... a trio of ex F1 WDC's PLUS at least another half dozen (7 at a glance) ex / future F1 drivers, so at least 10 F1 drivers.

What happened to Argentina?

Dont blink.... it might happen and both sides are claimed to be in constant communication to try and get it on the calendar.
It might not be a points / championship race though.

Argentina race could still be added to 2024 IndyCar schedule
IndyCar could still race in Argentina next year despite its omission from the recently announced 2024 schedule.
Considering the schedule has already been revealed with 17 points race and a season finale on the Streets of Nashville on 15 September, the addition of Argentina after the season concludes would likely mean a non-points event. It would be the second non-points event on the calendar behind The Thermal Club, which will host a $1 Million Challenge in a made-for-TV event on 24 March.

Mark Miles, president and CEO of Penske Entertainment, shared that both IndyCar and Argentina race organisers remain keen making something happen.

“Not a week goes by, including this week, where we don't have great ongoing conversations to try to work out the details to race there in the fall of 2024,” Miles said. “So, it's not done yet, but we continue to make progress.

“It's something we're very interested in, as are the authorities in Argentina, and hopefully we can get it over the line.”
Canapino getting taken out by Illot could be juicy on his local territory, given the social media abuse Callum has had directed at him by the 'Argie' fans after previous altercations between the two team mates.. :whistling: aggro:
Dont mention the war. Or the Belgrano. :twisted: :suspicious: :
