IMS to modify Mickey Mouse RC for IndyCars

Word is that the Indy Speedway road course will be modified to make it less Mickey Mouse for the IndyCars next May. Look for Turn 5 of the road course to connect directly to Turn 7, thereby eliminating what is now Turn 6. Also look for Turn 9 to be eliminated with Turn 8 being a 90 degree lefthander feeding directly to what is now Turn 10. They are going to test running the cars in both directions. Both can work but the clockwise direction is better because Turn 1 is a true outbraking opportunity……as will be Turn 8 (likely to be renumbered Turn 7)
