ROAD AMERICA 2012

Post  SamYang on Wed 20 Jun - 10:05

Only 3 more days until JV's first race this year! I'm very optimistic for this one
Any information and news about the race can be posted here.

Does anyone have any information about the tv coverage outside North America?Motors TV will show the race, but I can't receive this channel.

Is there an IPTV channel covering the race or do I have to watch an illegal stream with poor video quality Rolling Eyes ?

JV is the fastest driver in practice 1 Smile 0.647s faster than Nelson Piquet Jr. an 1.666s faster than Max Papis! Apart from JVs fastest lap, the speeds are pretty much the same as last year. Our man seems to adjust really fast to his car. Smile

IS THE SHAVED HEAD A NEW LOOK FOR YOU? “Yeah, it’s the more exciting look. It wasn’t exciting enough last year (laughs). Yes, I guess my girlfriend likes it (smiles). That’s about it (smiles). It’s nothing too important.

4th place in practice 2. Does anyone know why Jacques only completed 2 Laps? Was he saving his tires? (What are the rules regarding the amount of tires/weekend?)

Thanks for the Pictures kurski!

I was hoping for front row, but P4 isn't too bad. Let's just hope that Mad Max and Brian Scott don't take revenge for last years incident Twisted Evil . They start right behind him on P5 and P6...

Too Bad For JV he was racing a decent clean race until Papis side bumped him on to the grass, and with dirty left tires JV could not stop enough on turn 5... it bumped Danica out.

I knew Papis was gona get JV at the end. Rolling Eyes

Next Nascar race for JV MTL!

Yes it was a fun race! JV is respected by Roger Penske and I for one could see him drive here once again. I mean Road America without JV in the lineup is boring.
One thing for sure JV would not be racing for Roger if some had their way, having an outsider come over here and think he can do anything on the track, like bump Danica out. like I mean Americans don’t like that even with the facts. lol Jacques Villeneuve is a big name in Motorsports racing and deserves to be respected. but tell that to some drivers.
With the V8 Speedcar coming soon it will be a breath of fresh air. Very Happy

Yeah, lets hope he get's the respect he deserves in Australia. I'm really looking forward to this race.
Jacques reaction in the post race interview was a bit inappropriate but understandable when you have to deal with ignorant crew chiefs. But still, you gotta love his dedication Very Happy

Monte Cristo wrote:VILLENEUVE'S FUTURE: Jacques Villeneuve will run the Nationwide Series race at Montreal in August as planned for Penske Racing.

Villeneuve was embroiled in controversy Saturday after running into Danica Patrick on the last lap of the Nationwide race at Road America. She was battling for a top-five finish, and contact from Villeneuve caused Patrick to spin and fall to 12th.

"Where Villeneuve goes, there tends to be cars that have problems, whether it's his fault or the other car's fault or (just) stock car racing at the end of the race," Patrick said. "You all can make a decision for yourself, what you think happened there."

Bud Denker, senior vice president of Penske Corp., said Villeneuve would drive as scheduled at the Montreal course named after Villeneuve's late father.


"I talked to Jacques this morning, and he said the same thing he did after the race, which is that it was a racing incident," Denker said. "There was no intent, it was the product of road racing, and he took out Danica, which was unfortunate because she drove a great race. But he'll be racing at Montreal as planned."

Villeneuve, the 1995 Indianapolis 500 winner and 1997 Formula One champion, dominated the middle stages of the race but spun out on lap 33 and lost several positions. He blamed the incident with Patrick on racing hard with Max Papis.

"We were racing hard, and I wasn't even fighting with Danica, I was fighting with Max Papis," Villeneuve said. "And just before the braking (zone), I guess he was wanting to cross over and go to the inside of Danica. And he probably didn't know I was there so he pushed me into the grass, and you don't slow down that much in the grass. So by the time I was on the racetrack again, I was going a little bit slower than Danica. That's all."


I think Nascar needs another "bad boy", if JV were American, he'd have a drive.

Amazing how some of the stories about JV bumping Danica leave out the part about McDowell bumping him. This one just say's JV "spun out"

Yeah I had the same thoughts. They're really trying to make him look bad.

Compared to Kurt Busch he's still a gentleman Very Happy But you're right, his Bad Boy image is giving him a lot of media attention. Not sure if this is a good or bad thing for potential sponsors...

Just visited GoDaddy. com to see what happens next. Disappointingly, it's just a bunch of people chasing Jacques Villeneuve with pitchforks.
