Scott Dixon: Worthy Champion or Just Lucky?

So that was that. The 2015 IndyCar championship did indeed get decided by the completely unnecessary usage of double points at the final round of the season at Sonoma. That is not taking anything away from the overall victor however – Scott Dixon, who at the end of the day, won more races than anybody else, and with the system …

Justin Wilson: 1978 – 2015

The motor racing world is in mourning today following the sad news of Justin Wilson’s death. Whilst the statistics will say that Wilson managed just one season in F1, scoring one point, his record elsewhere was much more than reasonable.

2015 Iowa Corn 300 Preview

At just seven eighths of a mile, Iowa is the shortest circuit on the calendar. A test of physical strength in addition to mental strength makes the 2015 Iowa Corn 300 one of the tougher races on the calendar to get a strong result at. Another trilling race last time out at Wisconsin produced another surprise winner, but not a new one this season. Sebastien Bourdais is beginning to cement his name into the IndyCar greats with a brilliant win where he was one lap ahead of the entire field at one point. However, Penske seemed to struggle, and this is starting to allow a few underdogs to get their nose into the ring as we head into the business end of the season.
