Last season’s Formula Renault Alps runner-up Luca Ghiotto will move up the Formula Renault 3.5 Series with International Draco Racing this year.
No one saw Dan Wheldon coming; especially not his former team Panther Racing and rookie pilot JR Hildebrand. When the Hildebrand drew through the final turns in the lead of the 2011 Indianapolis 500, how exactly did Wheldon still manage to win it - or more precisely, how was the race lost? Admittedly, it probably … Continue reading 2011 Indianapolis 500 Mile Race (Rd 5, May 29th)
In what turned out to be a frantic and constantly surprising Pole Day, Alex Tagliani scored an emotional top spot for next week's Indianapolis 500.
Dario Franchitti What is left to say about Dario Franchitti? A third title and a second Indy 500 win added much to the reputation of the popular Scot. Despite trailing Will Power for the length of the season, a steady string of podiums, including wins at Mid-Ohio and Chicagoland were enough to overhaul the Penske … Continue reading 2010 IZOD IndyCar Season Review
When Will Power slid out into the grey and scrubbed the turn 4 wall at Homestead-Miami Speedway early Sunday morning, the Australian handed the 2010 IndyCar title to rival Dario Franchitti on a plate. Franchitti needed to grab pole (he did), lead the most laps (he did) and win the race to guarantee the Championship, … Continue reading 2010 IndyCar Race of Homestead (Round 17)
Dario Franchitti took one crucial step to retaining the IZOD IndyCar Series title with pole position at Homestead Motor Speedway.

And so it is down to the wire. The IndyCar Series ran its 16th race of 17 early this morning (very early in my case) in front of a very healthy crowd and good runs for both title contenders - Will Power (Penske) and Dario Franchitti (Ganassi) - means the Championship will run right to … Continue reading 2010 IndyCar Motegi 300 (Round 16)
Helio Castroneves secured his second victory of the 2010 IZOD IndyCar season at Kentucky Speedway. The Brazilian started from 8th spot in his Penske and spent much of the race running on the fringes of the top ten, but a clever - and risky - fuel strategy brought him an unlikely victory late on ahead … Continue reading 2010 IndyCar Kentucky 300 (Round 15)
Going in the fourteenth round of the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series Championship, it looked like Will Power had the title by the scruff of the neck. How quickly things can change...

With the seasons road and street courses completed, the 2010 IZOD IndyCar season draws to a close over the following five weeks with four ovals, taking in Kentucky, Japan's Motegi circuit and Homestead in Miami - however the final stretch starts this weekend at Chicagoland Motor Speedway. Chicagoland has in the last few years played … Continue reading Chicagoland’s Last Hurrah?
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is not a circuit that often brings the best out of the IndyCar Series. It is a sports car course after all. Over the last thirty years, a number of the races run at the track have been less than spectacular and while Round 12 of the 2010 IndyCar Series will … Continue reading 2010 IndyCar Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio (Round 12)
