Superspeedway:

I like the look and I like the fact that a bigger chunk of downforce will be generated from underneath the car.

Looks a bit more F1 and a bit less Indy, while at the same time definitely maintaining that Indy look.

I prefer the road course aero, which I think gets unveiled and tested next week. Bigger front and rear wings make it look better proportionally.

Road course aero:




New bodywork to generate a good chunk less downforce than current version, which is just a tad different from F1's approach....

Britich chap Jordan King trying his hand at IndyCar (but not the ovals) for 2018: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/motorsport/42573966

Late last year I noticed some kind souls posting full races on YouTube, if they do the same again I shall be watching the whole season - or at least all of the street courses, I'm not a massive fan of oval racing.

We do get the races in Sweden, on the same channel that airs F1. One of few advantages with our current TV setup is that Viasat (our Sky, basically) owns practically all motorsport. DTM airs on Eurosport, I believe Formula E does too, but everything else on 2 or 4 wheels can be found on Viasat.

Sky has the best of the bunch over here - F1, F2, GP2, GP3, NASCAR - whilst BT shows Indycar, European F3, DTM, WRC.  F1 on free-to-air for this year (half live races, half extended highlights), and Formula E can also be watched by anyone - but that contract ends this year so good chance there will be zero live motorsport on FTA TV in 2019.
