They can't be to picky this year if they want 33 to start the race. You will make the race as long as you keep it out of the wall for four laps.

FWIW, I'll guess 224 and, since there are only 32 car / driver combos entered (at the moment), I'll go with 215. If we had 34-35 entries, then I'd say 219, but someone out there is going to figure it's better to save equipment and just throw any ole number up on the board and park it.
I'll be impressed @ 220mph. I mean...550 HP doing 220 mph laps at Indy is technological advancement in a way. The car isn't some horrible piece of junk IMO
I'm pretty surprised with the number of guesses of pole speed being less than what they have run so far in testing. Testing has been with a lot of wing and not pushing the engines due to the mileage rule.
Pole - 226.3
33rd - 216.2
Slowest Attempt - 209.8

I'll take a flux capacitor please...go back to a pole day that didn't need gimmicks....
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security
33rd car: 215.25
225.8 - 215.5

Fastest is 224.5
Slowest going 213.3
I mean they've already done 218s with minimal testing.
Will Power, Sebastien Bourdais, Fernando Alonso, Justin Wilson
Slowest: 203.568 (Legge, why worry about speed?)
