also no word on a possible extension of the Indycar race at Belle Isle. Contract ran out this year and no news about a possible renewal.
It's happening.

I would appreciate a kind word or two about Detroit for a change.
I'll stick up for it. It was far better to look at than Las Vegas.

Or as it's better known, the "Caesars Parking Lot Grand Prix".

It is currently snowing where I am too. Are you going to setup a thread about that? Probably not.

No need for a thread - I assumed you were live streaming, blogging and tweeting it.

If the Detroit Grand Prix were to be held today, it would have been the coldest race in F1 history (around -20°c)
