Some great photos and history in this little feature. It's crazy that this happened at all.
If they ran with the current cars I think they'd also top out around 240 or so, probably a little bit above that. The G-forces on the massive banking would probably be too much physically like what got the 2001 CART race at Texas cancelled.I think that is part of the reason they don't race there. I can't imagine what speeds they could reach today.
G-forces shouldn't be a problem. It'd just be a matter of whether or not it makes sense for their scheduling plans, and do the series and the track want to make it happen in light of open wheel's past there.Could Indy Car run the Roval or still the G Forces on the banking would be too much? Gosh I would love to see those cars scream off turn 4 on the front straight and then brake to get into the infield portion of the course.
