looks like the #19 is already done up in Demelo's sponsors color, although Fittipaldi is in the car today.

A major national blue-chip has the money to sponsor the entire car. This is only a good thing.

And I know we’re all saying it but holy hell, this new 2018 body kit looks exactly like we’d want it to.

Blue and orange is just about my favorite color combination, but they look so much better when one color dominates and the other is used as an accent color, like the old MCI car or even the McLarens.

Good news for everyone that isn't attending the Phoenix test this weekend


IndyCar posted:

Verizon IndyCar Series fans are itching to see the full field going wheel to wheel with the new-look cars in 2018.

They’ll get that chance this week, with INDYCAR offering an enhanced live video stream of the two-day open test Friday and Saturday at ISM Raceway near Phoenix. All four sessions will be streamed live and include live commentary and pit-lane interviews with drivers and team officials. The stream will be available at racecontrol.indycar.com and includes live timing and scoring.

Demelo and Fittipaldi officially splitting the 19 for the year, with Paysafe staying the sponsor all year. Demelo will take 10 races (assumedly the non-ovals?) and Fittipaldi the other 7 (assumedly the ovals plus one more?)

Still 10 races available at Juncos and 11 at Shank if you gotta check!!!

Speakin of Indy, I think we pretty much already have 33 depending on how stuff plays out. The 24 full timers and part timers, plus Stefan Wilson, Munoz, Pippa, Helio, Lazier (says hes coming again), 3rd for Schmidt (confirmed not Danica), D&R is planning on 2, and Danica all confirmed. Assuming Danica doesn't land in one of those D&R seats, thats 33.

Thats assuming nobody else adds any either. Bumping? Maybe??

Also Marco's colors for 5 races, including Indy and Long Beach:

If there is any bumping at all it's just gonna be like 2015, where Lazier didn't really even but in a serious attempt to qualify.

Any reason you're assuming the guy from the series that runs ovals will do road courses and the guy from the series with no ovals will do ovals?

Press release has Demelo doing the first 3 road courses and Fittipaldi doing the first 3 ovals, doesn’t mention the rest of the year. Somebody on Wikipedia shows all the dates and they are apparently mixing it up on the back end of the season though.

I remember him on Twitter one year at Daytona in July saying something like "If you see me, come say hi". I'm hoping he winds up doing something at NBC if ESPN gives up IndyCar.

Yeah. We don't have aerokit supply issues anymore (I hope?) but we still only have two engine manufacturers.

I also wonder how many raceable DW12 tubs even exist today. Even the big teams aren't replacing them on the regular.

There are big aerokit supply issues at the moment, pretty nobody has a spare part. It's getting better, but stock is definitely tight.

There are plenty of DW12 tubs sitting around now, but the 'raceable' part is the problem. The tubs got reinforced and rebaked this offseason, but a bunch of teams bought new tubs instead due to some small weight savings. So there are spare tubs out there, but any team that buys one would need to send it in to get rebaked, and I think Dallara is pretty much maxed out at the moment so that might take a while.
