Stop Comparing IndyCar And F1 Around COTA

The NTT IndyCar Series held a full field test at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin Texas this week as two days of Spring Training tool place.

Straight away comparisons were drawn between the lap times of a Formula One car and an IndyCar around the circuit.

This is a pointless comparison given the fact the two racing categories are completely different. The only similarity is the fact that they are single seater cars.

The first thing is that there are no major politics in the NTT IndyCar Series, the sport is just about racing and the Circuit Of The Americas is going to provide an incredible IndyCar Classic next month.

As Graham Rahal told us recently although the IndyCar’s won’t beat F1 in terms of lap times when it comes to the entertainment factor the NTT IndyCar Series will put on a better show for the fans.

For example if you get a three day general admission ticket that includes a ticket to see Muse in concert at the Circuit on Saturday night.

The IndyCar Classic is going to provide extremely close racing at COTA compared to what we have seen in Formula One recently.
