Well, now that it’s official: http://www.champcarworld.net/pages/news.php?id=4355
I guess you can figure out what the “brace yourself” alerts to me this afternoon were concerning.
Denver, China, Phoenix. What a fucking joke of a season. What series has THREE major events canceled in ONE season, including the fucking season finale.
Way to fuck up the points championship too dickheads.
My head is still spinning from conversations I had this weekend about our series.
Even at a non-Champ Car event, the topic still comes up amoungst the media.
Pretty comical comments still going around about RM’s hardcard pulling. (first chance I had to talk to the Canadian print media folks about it, and boy did we have some fun convos) (best part was finally meeting and yucking it up with Norris McDonald. What a cool cat he is.)
Champ Car is seen as a joke and unstable by many outside of the protective CC bubble. (not just by media & fans) We are losing our future due to our ridiculous present. The young drivers coming up through the ladder series are being advised by those around them to seek a different direction due to the instability of the series. Hearing that was like a sucker punch to the gut. I was all at once sad and infuriated.
Something has got to change and quickly, cause things are going downhill fast.
