No sponsors on the cars. 14 cars that are mostly owned by the owners of the series. No Indy 500 on the schedule. TV that is tape delayed and smashed into an hour. I can go on but this series is worthless.

Bourdais' dream has always been an F1 drive. He has earned the seat.
Champ Car is in better shape than the doom and gloomer's portray. They have a good drivers line up and the championship will be wide open this year.
It's still the most exciting racing series. Much better that watching cars drive around in boring circles.
Long live Champ Car!

Round and Round we go. What a waste of gas. Then, a crash. Nobody died. Round and Round we go. BORING.

I wouldn't call this series worthless though despite them being in such a shite statues. And saying 14 cars are mostly fielded by the series owner is completely untrue.Forsythe will most likely field 2 cars and PG is likely to do so too, and that's their own car being as a team owner. They're not trying to field more cars than they want. TV schedule is on the other hand very much dismal, I just can't believe they can get their season opener Long Beach race delayed, and Road America being only one show is completely unacceptable. The complaints will go on and on but the problem is Champ Car is not going bankrupt easily because it is being controlled by some real rich blokes and they won't easily run out of the money unless they decide to stop.
Anyway, it's not like all and everything is looking bad in Champ Car, they have got some good fresh blood coming into the series this year, Montagny, Perra, Bernoldi and some old guns ,actually I would say this driver talent pool is better than IndyCar has at the moment probably.
