Maybe it sounds arrogant, but am member #1 because of lack of any others as yet. If I stand alone forever, then I stand alone forever. Future members will be dubbed by the chronological order in which they state agreement with the following philosophical statements regarding racing, specifically open-wheel. The list may be subject to additions, in time to come, if deemed necessary.
The love not only a specific race, even one as great as the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race, but the racing of machines built specifically for it; I love "formula," open-wheel racing.
I love oval track racing, road course racing, and street course racing; I love the racing of any type of purpose-built racing machines. I do not agree with anyone who says that racing should not take place on a given surface or track layout 'as a matter of course,' or because a certain group doesn't find it interesting.
I do not believe the age of improving the breed of automobiles has passed; I do not believe auto racing is merely entertainment, or business.
I "tip my hat" to any man or woman who is willing to step into a purpose-built racing machine and put their well-being on the line to engage others in motorsports competition, regardless of their personal reasons for doing so.
My sense of aesthetics accepts that the most beautiful design happens to be what is the best design for a purpose-built racing machine. If a front-engined car can be found that performs 'equal to, or better and faster than,' rear-engined cars, it is 'as beautiful, or more.' If it cannot, it is not.
These, the first ones I can think of, and thus far the most important.
