EXAMINE & EVALUATE: IndyCar yesterday announced the formation of an advisory competition committee that will consist of a minimum of seven members to meet regularly throughout the year. The committee will make recommendations to the sanctioning body, with final decisions made by IndyCar management. The committee will consist of two IndyCar management reps appointed by the series CEO, two team reps, two drivers, four manufacturer members and one at-large member appointed by its CEO. Additionally, the committee chair can invite other key stakeholders such as promoters, track officials and broadcast partners to attend meetings (IndyCar). SPEEDTV.com’s Marshall Pruett noted one member of the new committee who, despite “the predictable panning of 'yet another committee being formed,' believes it will make a positive impact on the series going forward.” Meanwhile, a “mandatory dinner meeting for IndyCar drivers was held Tuesday night to allow Hulman & Co. CEO Mark Miles, interim IndyCar CEO Jeff Belskus and interim IndyCar CFO Robbie Greene a chance to meet drivers one-on-one” (SPEEDTV.com, 3/12).
