He lost his Legs at an odd-oval, Lausitzring, Germany. Indycar race.


Its hell to drive, like Pocono. He was in F1 before that, somewhen after Villeneuve 97 and before 2000.

i am fine with the schedule, we could add some action if we reduce quali and warm up by 5 mins each, the long breaks will take out all the smirking grin of our faces and result in boredom and prolonged tension in the neck Smile

(and if we are still fine with 1,5 hours, we would end up with 4 races Smile )

Yes, he drove between 1991-1994 and then again in 1999. Only ever scored 1 point, but 2 CART championships. After he lost his legs, 9 months on he started driving world touring cars (and won some races), and 2 years after he lost his legs, he returned to Lausitz to finish the remaining 13 laps in the car he crashed.

Argh, I really desperately need a set up :/ At the turn before the Sachs Kurve (Agip corner, or something), I keep spinning with reduced downforce :doh:

I thought it looked like him but I did not know he had lost his lower legs! Glad he is still driving!!


And I like my new G27 wheel Smile

FYI, non symmetrical setup seems to be a good idea here. With grip so low the inside tire are not gripping enough to stay at temperature! LF is MUCH happier now.

And he's now going for the gold medal in the London paralympic games, respect. :chinois:

u must change the way you turn in, i think its not amid corner.

change brake balance or try softer rear springs or softer rear rebound on the slow side. try to get fast bump and rebpund at the rear a bout loser together. Smile
u can increase coast side of the differential and maybe increase pump (incase u also change a bit of the bump and springs all dogether. it will make the car turn better despite more rear end grip.

Well there was this one guy who tried to merge ChampCar with Indycar. And IMO it worked quite well.

I still remember when they split CART and Indy Car Racing up. It happened close to the Indy 500. The Indy 500 ran with a bunch of no names and the CART guys ran at Michigan. In their jubilant ignorance they started all the drivers 3 wide at Michigan like they do at Indy. This resulted in a spectacular crash in turn one lap 1 that also fittingly set the stage for the demise of Indy type racing in the US as the favprite motor sport. To this day, the Indy 500 is a shadow of its prior self and Nascar has absolutely owned Indy style racing in the US (as far as fan base and commerical success).

I used to watch the old Indy 500 historical reels on ESPN every year the month before the race. It was awesome. Then money/politics/big-business/ego ruined it.

Which is a shame because apart from the short tracks, Nascar is really crap.

Indycar, this year, has been very entertaining.

I was more like speaking of how Jens said Indy when it was ChampCar(CART). Not mix as in bring them together.

Not everything is/was Indy Jens, never watched ChampCar races on Eurosport? Razz

Tony George? That plonker?

Oh you don't want me to do that...trust me Razz

But I may do one Williams...then the other...then put what little is left of the two together and run that.

I have been driving the Ferrari a little. My translation: shift shift shift shift shift shit...repeat many times.
