So the problem of 2 competing American "formula car" series may be over... but there's still another problem... the same problem that was there in the mid 90's when this thing started...
Indycar is still very much an "F1-lite" or "F1-reject" series with cars that are dumbed-down versions of F1 cars with mostly drivers who were on an F1 career path who didn't make it there.
Is the audience still American? And how many American winners did ICS or CCWS have last year? How will a singular series solve this?
Indy cars in the form of "formula cars" stuck to the ground with massive amounts of downforce has run its course... its time for something new... something with relevance to the majority of the rest of American OW racing.
