The IndyCar Series has announced that it will introduce double-file restarts at all events from this year, not just on ovals as previously intended.

The change means that two-abreast restarts after caution periods will now also be implemented at road and street rounds.

whooo whooo whooo whooo

This is going to spice up the show to amazing levels, early research suggests the show could heat up by 75 % compared to last season. Double-file restarts are a no-brainer, more opportunities for stupid driving and crashes - makes for good TV.

I'm just picturing a double-file restart at a track like Long Beach, just a fantastic prospect.

it sounds to me that there trying to make indycar like nascar, except this is one of the worst parts of nascar. if you want nascar fans to come to indycar get dale jnr in an indycar and they'll come, this will be gone in 6 races.

I'd like to point out that two out of three NASCAR races this year have been sold-out. IndyCar could only dream of the amount of fans that TV coverage that NASCAR has.

Thats why IndyCar is trying to lure NASCAR drivers to compete in the Las Vegas IndyCar race, IndyCar knows if they can get somebody like Dale Jr, Jeff Gordan or Harvick - their ratings will instantly rise as these drivers are recognisable to mass America.

Double-file restarts aren't even fake or contrived, its simply lining up cars in rows of two for restarts - like how the races start.
