Round 7: revised calendar. The 104th running of the Indianapolis 500. Aug 12-23, 2020

Round 7: revised calendar. The 104th running of the Indianapolis 500. Aug 12-23, 2020.

It's been nearly a month since since the double header at Iowa but the waiting is over. With the Rookie Orientation Program and veteran's Refresher taking place tomorrow, as well as the first practice session, it's time to start the thread for the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500.

With the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, it was doubtful whether there would be a 2020 IndyCar season, let alone the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500. However, the season has got underway and the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 is going ahead. Initially there was to be a limited attendance of 25%. Unfortunately it was decided to hold it behind closed doors but at least we have a race.

Tomorrow will have a different format from previous years, with no Open Test for Indy newcomers to complete their Rookie Orientation Program, or for veterans who’ve been on the sidelines to conduct their ‘Refresher’ runs. Instead IndyCar has set 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. EDT for veterans to get in two hours of practice, before handing the track over from 1:00p.m-3:00 p.m., for the Rookie Orientation Program. From 3:00p.m.-5:30 p.m, there will be a free practice session.

History
Indianapolis Motor Speedway is one of the world's oldest, purpose-built tracks that is still in use. In 1905 Indiana businessman Carl G. Fisher, envisioned building a circuit after watching some of the world's earliest car races in France. He felt Europe had the upper hand in car design and thought one reason was the lack of permanent testing facilities for American car manufacturers. After another visit to Europe and seeing the banked oval at Brooklands, England, he decided to build his own track.

Fisher convinced local businessmen James A. Allison, Arthur Newby and Frank W. Wheeler to join him in purchasing Pressley Farm, five miles outside of Indianapolis and totalling 328 acres for about $72,000. On March 20, 1909, The Indianapolis Motor Speedway company was incorporated and construction began that month.

The track surface consisted of packed soil covered by two inches of gravel, two inches of limestone covered with a solution of tar and oil, or taroid, one–two inches of crushed stone chips, also drenched with taroid and topped with crushed stones.

The first motorsport event was a series of motorcycle races planned over two days, under the sanction of the Federation of American Motorcyclists (FAM), starting on August 14, 1909. Concerns about the track surface stopped the event part way through day one. Five days later 15 teams arrived for the first car event, held over three days. This was not without incident. On day one

Wilfred Bourque suffered a rear-axle failure, resulting in his car flipping end over end on the main straight, before crashing into a fence post, killing him and his mechanic Harry Halcomb. On day three the right front tire blew on Charlie Merz's car, knocking down five fence posts and dozens of spectators, killing two as well as his mechanic Claude Kellum. Ten laps later, after another accident, the race was cancelled.

The AAA, American Automobile Association, announced it would boycott further events unless the surface was changed. A concrete surface was considered but the track owners decided to pave the entire facility with bricks, after tests proved their durability. Five Indiana manufacturers
supplied 3.2 million, 10-pound bricks. Each was hand laid on a 2 inch bed of sand, then leveled and the gaps filled with mortar. A concrete wall 33 inches tall was also constructed in front of the main grandstand and around all four corners to protect spectators. The final brick was made of gold and laid in a special ceremony by Governor Thomas R. Marshall.

In December 1909, the track reopened for testing, with speeds of up to 112 mph being reported. Racing returned the next year, with a series of short races held over the three main holiday weekends: Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day.

The following year, 1911, racing was just confined to Memorial Day and the very first 500 mile race was held on May 30. It was won by a former racer and Marmon engineer Ray Harroun, who came out of retirement for just one race, driving the legendary Marmon-Wasp. Since then, the event has always been held on the Sunday before Memorial Day and the race has been held every year since 1911, except for 1917-18 and 1942-45, due to World Wars I and II.

Recent History
After the 100th running of Indianapolis 500 and the anticipation that goes with such an historic event, one might have expected the 101st running to be a little down beat. However, in April, 2017 two time F1 World Driver's Champion, Fernando Alonso, 2005, 2006, decided not to compete at the jewel in the crown of the F1 calendar, the Monaco Grand Prix but instead compete in the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday the 28th of May, the same day as the Monaco Grand Prix.

At the end of 2014 McLaren's F1 engine deal with Mercedes ended. McLaren decided to renew their historic links with Honda, with whom they had a very successful partnership in the late '80s and early '90s, with drivers Alain Prost and the late Ayrton Senna. Alonso who raced with McLaren in 2007, was lured back from Ferrari, after a somewhat frustrating five years, having been runner up three times in the F1 world Driver's Championship.

The Honda engine was problematic from the start and with little improvement during the 2016 Formula 1 season, McLaren and Alonso agreed on a joint venture to race in the 2017 Indy 500, in a bid to win the Triple Crown. This would mean not taking part in the 2017 Monaco Grand Prix, as both races clash and the likelihood of a decent finish at Monaco was remote.

The Triple Crown consists of winning the Indianapolis 500, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Monaco Grand Prix. This has only been achieved by one other driver, the late Graham Hill. So far, Alonso has won the Monaco Grand Prix in 2006-7 and Le Mans in 2018.

McLaren's entry was in partnership with Andretti Autosport, one of the top Honda IndyCar teams, winning the 500 with Ryan Hunter-Reay in 2014 and partnering with Bryan Herta, to clinch Alexander Rossi's rookie win, in the 100th running of the race, in 2016.

Alonso qualified 5th but an engine issue, similar to the one that forced team mate Ryan Hunter-Reay to retire from the race, meant Alonso also retired finishing 27th.

Last year Alonso renewed his bid to win the Tripple Crown, at his second attempt, having announced he would leave F1 at the end of the 2018 season. Last year's enrty was again with McLaren but this time with Carlin affiliation and a switch from Honda to Chevrolet power. Unfortunately.

Alonso's bid ended when he failed to qualify for the race itself. He made five qualifying attempts but didn't make the top 30. At the close of the time trials, Alonso was 31st and was forced to participate in the Last Row Shootout. There were six other cars that failed to qualify on Saturday and each car was permitted one qualifying attempt to fill the last three positions on the grid.

Sage Karam set the fastest speed, having only managed 33rd on Saturday's session. James Hinchcliffe who had crashed on Saturday, therefore failing to make the top 30, also qualified. Alonso now found himself on the bubble, with only second year driver Kyle Kaiser, of Juncos Racing yet to make his attempt.

Kaiser crashed during Friday's practice and was now last after Saturday's qualifying session. With zero practice laps on the day, Kaiser bumped Alonso by 0.0129 seconds to make the starting field. The other two cars that failed to make the grid, were the two Carlin entries, driven by Patricio O'Ward and Max Chilton.

Alonso returns this year in his third bid for the Triple Crown, this time with Ruoff Arrow McLaren SP, in car 29.


Qualifying
Qualifying will have a different format from the usual two-day format as used from 2014 to 2018.

Prior to qualifying, Fast Friday will enable entire field to use maximum turbocharger boost, to perform simulated qualifying runs ahead of qualifying on Saturday and Sunday. The switch from race boost to high boost is at each team's discretion.

On Saturday the field of 33 cars will be split into two groups, with Group 1 taking the 8:30-9:00 a.m. practice slot and Group 2 taking the 9:00-9:30 a.m. slot.

Qualifying itself begins on Saturday at 11:00 a.m. and goes through to 4:50 p.m. Those who have qualified from 10th to 33rd place on Saturday, are locked into those positions and are done running until the Fast Nine session is finished the following day. Those who have qualified inside the Fast Nine will run again on Sunday to determine the pole winner and establish the grid for the top nine.

Sunday will host three sessions, with the Fast Nine practice from 11:00-11:30 a.m., the Fast Nine qualifying from 1:15-2:15 p.m. and a practice for all qualifiers from 3:30-6:00 p.m.

Nicely done, bjs!

Here's a link to the full schedule; the one from THE Speedway website is cumbersome to me.

Practice gets on tomorrow. Looks like it'll be on Gold so I won't see it!

Great intro. Glad the Greatest Spectacle in racing is getting underway. No chance of anyone failing to qualify, which means Fred avoids repeating the embarrassment of last year.

Will be very different without the crowd though, some of the traditions wonít be the same without them

Careful with what we say! Many teams have been forced to withdraw in the past, not due to pace. I'm not sure if this is as not as long as the month of May, so to speak, but THE Speedway always lives up to its reputation. Let's hope for safe sessions and a full field!!

It will be weird but I'm just glad to have a race to view. Hope I can watch it live as I've got family commitments currently. Times not set and out of my control.

I think there is decent variety there too. And I didn't know HyVee was going to be sponsoring any cars past the Iowa races! I'm pulling for Pigot now!

mstets should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Does the fact that TK shook down #41 for Foyt mean that there will be bumping? Bourdais to qualify the car once the #4 and #14 are in the show?

Guess not. I forgot that Kellett is entered.

I saw 34 places on the results page and jumped to the wrong conclusion.

Canít draw too many conclusions at the moment, but good to see both Marco and Fred up there. No surprise to see the mayor of Hinchtown and Scott Dixon up there
