Multiclass sports car racing has been producing a superior show to F1 for a long time. The worst ALMS race I attended was still more fun the best F1 race I attended.

They've been after his sorry ass for a while. They just had to put the right holes in his "Indian tribe ownership" deception. He served time before, in the 90s I think. His brother committed suicide...

I need to watch this again.

And a bit off topic, I am running some really cool loaner wheels while mine are getting serviced. Carbon isn't just for cars anymore.

I can't bear the thought anymore of going 37 miles in a car at once, unless I'm hauling my bicycle to a ride or starting a road trip to an auto race. :)

I almost never watch races live anymore, or anything else for that matter. For the very reasons you stated.

When it's warm I mostly pace about 16-17 MPH. I've done 35 mile rides at 18-19 MPH in a group with a paceline. In the winter months when it's colder I slow down a bit to 14-16 MPH pace. My average...

Right, but I didn't ride every day (227 days), so my average ride distance worked out to 36.5 miles. I'm 57 but everything seems OK. I can see riding regularly until I can't get on a bike.

I still think there is a big difference. Le Mans race car engines run flat out for 4, 6, 12, 24 hours at a time. That's what I'm talking about. The whole package has to endure for longer periods at a...

Yes, but F1's races run less distance than LMP1's very shortest races. Le Mans "sprint" races go 50% longer than F1 races. It's an apples and oranges comparison. F1 cars are higher performance and...
