Some people have asked why I started posting online auctions along with the regular auctions. I always did post online auctions, but during the winter there seemed to be a flood of them. Mainly from BNO (Bid Network Online) and Catawiki. With Catawiki being, by far, the most aggressive I have ever seen. It didn't seem likely that they could keep up the pace. So far I have been proven wrong. In February I took a chance and bid on something which I ended up with the winning bid. I liked the way that it was handled, very timely and clear, and I was pleased with my win. Until I hear some totally negative feedback I will continue to post their offerings. I go to many auctions throughout the year and this was the first time I tried an online auction. I am pleased. Check them out.
Hooray! The racing season is open. Not only did Sebastian Bourdias win, but he had the drive of the day. From last place (21) to first...not an easy task. I was very happy for him because he has had a few tough years, but has a great racing history. Following in second was Simon Pagenaud, last year's champion. Third went to Scott Dixon, always a top finisher. Jumping back to Bourdias for a minute, he switched teams this year going to Dale Coyne Racing. Coyne rarely hired drivers for the full season, but took the chance to hire Bourdias for this season. I'll bet he is happy now.
Still liking Takuma Sato and Tony Kanaan. Kanaan ended up in 12th and Sato, who had a good day, ended up in 5th. Sato also changed teams this year and is now one of the Andretti drivers.
