Racing Chatter

Latest rumours at Newman Haas Lanigan (NHL) racing...

"...if you pay attention to what Mike Lanigan from Newman/Haas/Lanigan recently said, it certainly sounds like that team is going to go to three cars. It looks like Graham Rahal...this is a guy who's gonna have some company on that team. It looks like Robert Doornbos is probably going to wind up on part of that team, and it looks like Sebastien probably going to be back in the fold there as well."

This is an interview with Sebastien Bourdais after losing the 2006 Champ car race in Mont-Tremblant. Listen to the crowd in the background boo everything Bourdais has to say. I am proud to say, I am standing just out of camera shot in the stands and that booing started because of me. No word of a lie. I had happened to be at that race with the wife and was standing with a vocal bunch of Robert Doornbos supporters. When Bourdais began whining about being blocked I started booing and everyone else began as well. And every time he tried to say something we just kept booing him. Listen for the Whaaaa when he says we are not supposed to block... Yup that's my big mouth! It will be nice to have Bourdais back in North America. He was a very easy race driver to hate.

The only way this could get any better would be if Paul Tracy was the third driver for this team, which we all know would never happen.

First race of the season is April 5th, in St. Petersburg, Florida.
