F1 » Kate Walker: When the show turns fatal


Richard, as you probably know, this was a regional sprint car (dirt race) not nascar. These cars are direct drive, no transmissions. Even at caution lap speeds to keep from stalling, they slide all over the place. I've seen the replay many times and having no cares either way or bias, I haven't seen any thing blatantly intentional on stewart's part. Ad that Ward was wearing black on a dimly lit circuit. On the other hand a 20 year old is bullet-proof and can have questionable judgement. Unfortunately,this time the kid paid with his life. Obviously the authorities agree as stewart hasn't been charged, so far.

F1 » Kate Walker: When the show turns fatal


richard: walrus. i mistakenly thought that sprint cars were a junior nascar, due to stewart taking part. so i presume that it is the racing with framed buggies which have the large assymetrical roof rings? am i right?
Yes, Richard, the framed buggies. On dirt. Ed, BTW Stewart is a master of this sport and competes and promotes these races along with his nascar doings. He is very skilled and should be as in control of those cars as any of the best sprint drivers.

F1 » McLaren surprised by FRIC ban


107SS2009: walrus909, FRIC is all about aerodynamics and nothing to do with traction controll.
That's why I said 'assuming'. I imagined it was like a front to back torsion bar type device. if some ne can, please direct me to a article explaining how it helps aerodynamics. Never mind if is as Richard described. But why they would call this FRIC is escaping me.
