Half-time break

We are coming up on the second biggest racing weekend of he year. Last week we had the Grand Prix of Monaco, the Indianapolis 500 and, not to be outdone. NASCAR's Coca-cola 600, which is a wicked lot of racing miles in one day even if you're jockeying nothing more challenging than the recliner. This weekend comes the encore, the Grand Prix of Canada and twin 275-km Indycar races at the Texas Speedway in Fort Worth. And just to keep everyone on their toes, we have Les Vingt-Quatre Heures du Mans, too, though for those disinclined to pay Speed's price for occasional glimpses between commercials, coverage in North America tends to be scant. But it's still and important race.

Not that things will settle down after. Bernie's ownership of Formula One is under challenge, and the Bahrein Grand Prix is back on the schedule, with many of those involved less than sanguine about the complications that could entail. We can look forward to our Indycar races in Toronto and Edmonton. And who knows what mischief NASCAR will be into?

Time to sit back, relax, and open another beer. Summers is here.
