'03 IRL Ilmor... The Honda Passport of the IRL [View News Item]    (Score: 1, Normal) 05-11-2003 20:37

Yes indeed, these are indeed Ilmor motors purchased with HMC's forced money, and perhaps just a very little bit of AHM know how, hence the Honda badge. Sort of like the Mercedes badge on earlier Ilmors.

HMC marketing 1 point
AHM R&D 0 points
Honda Fans YAWNNNN

At least Toyota is making their motors.. although I won't mind if a Honda Badged Ilmor wins... It just won't be as sweet as if Paul Tracy or Scott Goodyear had won their Indy 500s with proper AHM CART engines.

Lobbying for more boost...oooops that right it's an NA formula now ! Maybe Roger P. can find a loophole and build a one off V10.....wait he's got 'yotas in his pagodas.
Well Detroit will probably have to wait for the Brickyard 400 to toot its UAW horn

Chevy couldn't take the heat. Apparently neither could Nissan. I'll still be rooting for Honda (or Ilmor), just as long as Toyota doesn't win. This is prolly the first Indy without a US engine manufacturer (Ilmor is British). The only engines available for this Indy 500 are Toyotas or Hondas; and since we all love Toyota so much....

I've been calling it the HOMER for a while now. Real race engines don't have rev limiters. IRL is a joke. Run and sustained by bully track owners. Most noteably TG. Worst of all, the cars are the most dangerous of all supposed top level race cars. I watched my last laps ever last year. Tuned in for the last 10 laps only to see Tracey get ripped of for a win. I hope every HOMER blows up, at least then the drivers will be safe behind the wall.

It seems Mr. GoodWrench went on strike and didn't come on down with the truckload of parts...

Or maybe the local dealers had to order some more parts and the truck got lost somewhere East of Peoria...

Yep. Next thing we know, GM will follow Chrysler into the European Sport Sedan competition where they will get their butts beat by Renault and Skoda.

The IRL is a joke. A very bad joke. Tony George will wonder what happened when Honda and Toyota leave the series in a shambles just like they did to CART.
