Reigning Star Mazda Champion, Tristan Vautier, took a commanding victory on his Indy Lights debut around the streets of St Petersburg last Saturday.
Quick glances upward do not reveal a sky looking its prettiest.
Victor Garcia took his first ever single seater victory at Barber Motorsports Park earlier this month.
For decades, the names Foyt, Andretti, Rutherford and Unser burned themselves into the consciousness of the US motor racing industry. A group that reigned supreme on the dirt tracks that held so many midget races over the years, but in recent decades the road from dirt track ovals to IndyCar has virtually dried up. Step forward Bryan Clauson.
After what has already been a busy week in the US for single-seater racing (and is about to get busier this evening), the Firestone Indy Lights Championship has released its racing calendar for the 2011 season.
Jean-Karl Vernay may well have been declared the 2010 Indy Lights Champion when he fired up on Saturday evening, but the final race of the year belonged to Davey Hamilton Racing's Brandon Wagner in only his fifth race of the season, although not without some tight competition from all sides. Starting from 3rd in the … Continue reading 2010 Indy Lights Homestead 100 (Round 13)
Tonight, Londoner Pippa Mann secured her third Indy Lights pole position of the 2010 season.

It ended up being a dream weekend for Pippa Mann. Pole position on Friday afternoon was swiftly followed up by a dominant win on Saturday - and I mean dominant. The young lady from London stormed to the chequered flag at Kentucky Motor Speedway, but it wasn't a completely undisturbed run. After the first green … Continue reading 2010 Indy Lights Kentucky 100 (Round 12)
Pippa Mann secured her second pole position of the season for the Firestone Indy Lights Series at Kentucky Motor Speedway. The 29-year-old pipped (unavoidable, sorry) fellow Briton Martin Plowman by 0.165 mph as she registered an average speed over two laps of 190.474 mph around the 1.48-mile oval. Plowman's AFS / Andretti-Autosport team mate, Charlie … Continue reading 2010 Indy Lights Kentucky 100 (Round 12, Qualifying)
Sometimes it's a wonder why qualifying is ever run at Chicagoland. Such is the rate of overtaking at the circuit, that a driver can concentrate on perfecting the race set-up and work through the field from there. At the finale of the 2008 IndyCar season, Helio Castroneves climbed from 27th position to win by 0.0033 … Continue reading 2010 Indy Lights Race of Chicagoland (Round 11)
There are occasions when drivers have no choice but to rise above the elements and conditions to get that little bit extra from the car - an example being Mark Webber when the Red Bull man drove the 2007 Japanese Grand Prix with a stomach bug and famously vomited into his helmet when on the … Continue reading 2010 Indy Lights Race of Chicagoland (Round 11, Qualifying)
Every so often, a driver just runs away with a race. From the moment the green flag drops, those "in the zone" will either run off into the distance or simply control the race from the front - today polesitter Martin Plowman was that driver. The Briton led the Firestone Indy Lights Race of Mid-Ohio … Continue reading 2010 Indy Lights Race of Mid-Ohio (Round 9)
For the first part of the 45 minute qualifying session for IndyLights, Martin Plowman topped the times in his AFS/Andretti Autosport machine, prior to debris bringing out a lengthy yellow flag period.
