    He has always expressed an interest in racing in seppo land, and as his partner, now wife, lives there, it gives him even more reason to give things a go I think.

    I thought he might be getting a bit bored of V8SC.

    Scott McLaughlin is going to be testing an Indycar at Sebring on January the 13th as part of a rookie test day.

    I figured that when the time comes for him to leave VASC, he would be more likely to race in the IMSA series, and had never considered he would want to go to open wheelers, but watch this space, I guess.

    Oh yeah I’d be mega surprised if he wasn’t signed by them.

    A big shame that a 4 time CART champion loses his seat due to a lack of funding. No champion should ever need to bring funding.

    The global motorsport model is so broken, but I fear the horse has bolted long ago, and it will always be this way moving forward

    I don't think Rodger owning this Brickyard is going to create any unfair advantage - Penskes Indy car teams main goal each season is to win the Indy 500 anything else is secondary

    Hopefully they can lock down a international event or tow to get the season kicked off a bit earlier + bring back the Mile

    I can’t see there being any big problems with conflict of interest given Penske’s history as a straight shooter as you put it. I see him being kinda like Don Panoz when he owned American Le Mans Series. Had a team competing in the series but never crossed the line. Every win was well earnt there.

    Agreed. Far better to have the series, and its crown jewel, owned by somebody who genuinely loves the sport, rather than somebody who sees it as a way to potentially make some money.
