    We sent Robin Miller out to IMS to get a little more info on the 2017 Runoffs: Videos - RACER Video: SCCA Runoffs headed to Indianapolis in 2017

    That is the F1 circuit, SCCA referenced the Indy layout in the release. http://indymotorspeedway.com/files/I...ndPrix_Map.gif

    Thanks. Looks like 14 (turns) could be his lucky number. Or maybe Tway's?

    I have been waiting for the rumor to be true for many months now. Indy here we come! Rovals are not particularly fun but like Daytona...it's Indy. You gotta go there if you get the chance.

    Well people thought the turn out for Daytona was going to be hot. It was not. It was respectable not off the charts. Reasons I heard, people don't want to be at Daytona for 10 days with practice, qualy and races, Daytona was too fast, People scared to hit walls. Indy is a Roval so maybe just as fast and the event is still up to 10 days long.

    I think the walls at Indy loom larger than the walls at Daytona, due in no small part to the greater degree of banking on the oval portions of the track. Indy has much less banking.

    Bummer it won't be the F1 config. You're not really in any oval corner in the Indy Car config.

    But I'll still go. I'm kissing bricks.
