Detroit Grand Prix Stopped Because Of Detroit’s Terrible Roads
The Detroit grand prix track surface breaks apart and causes James Hinchcliffe to crash, and he was pissed off about it, and drops a few f-bombs, and unlike Kurt Busch, these ones were justifiable.
The first running of the IndyCar Detroit Grand Prix since 2008 was red-flagged this afternoon after a piece of the track started to crumble, causing driver James Hinchcliffe to go flying into the wall. As you can see in the video, he was not happy about it.
Indy’s return to Detroit’s Belle Isle course was supposed to be another signal of the rebirth of the American automaker. Instead, it’s just been a reminder of Detroit’s failing infrastructure and Indy’s inability to make anything outside of the Indy 500 remotely interesting.
“The fucking track just came up. They leave that big piece of track just sitting there. What the fuck?” Hinchcliffe screamed after plowing into the rubber. This led them to red flag the race. Since then they’ve been hanging out in the paddock waiting for the track to get patched.
