Uh Oh!!!!!! Look out ladies. No F1 on the North American continent in 2009!!

Canadian Grand Prix not included on 2009 Formula One calendar

Montreal has been left off the Formula One schedule for 2009.
The FIA released the official 2009 Formula One calendar on Tuesday, with the most obvious development being the cancellation of the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal.

The loss of the Canadian event means that North America will not host a Grand Prix next season, after the USGP at Indianapolis was eliminated this year.

The FIA did not give a reason for not including Montreal on the schedule.

The revised calendar also sees the date for the Turkish Grand Prix changing from its original August slot to a June date. In another revision, the Italian and Belgian races have swapped positions, with the Spa event now taking place on Aug. 30, a two weeks before the Italian Grand Prix at Monza on Sept. 13.

The 18-race championship will reach its finale in mid-November with the inaugural Abu Dhabi race.

Front swaybar is installed. Bought an H&R. Seems like the car is more prone to slide sidways than before, so I'm guessing that the inside tire is getting more traction. Should get even better when I disconnect the rear swaybar

Went to Fiorano tonight to test the new swaybar. Car has quicker oversteer when turning right. Fast enough that I had to shuffle the wheel. When doing a circle and turning left though it was much more progressive and was able to be controlled from the wrists. Guessing that the car is driving the right rear mostly, which is typical. So I figure that when the car applies the brake to the right wheel spin when turning right it instantly spins the left rear kicking the car sideways quickly. Just my .02

Don't you need to be at the board meeting also Brian?

Should we plan on watching a taped/delayed version after the meeting?

I still need your address too.

I slid through the muddy apex of 4 sideways and went off at 15 a good distance in the midfield. I went out way to wide got caught on tractionless rumble strips which got things loose.

Wasn't a good morning for me. Afternoon was great though.

Tomorrow I try and tackle muddy headliner.
