Full power, brittle calendar... After knocking on the door for five years, Will Power (above) has at last won the IndyCar title. The Australian looked a likely champion in 2010, ’11 and ’12, only to throw away his chances in the closing stages. This year, his fifth with Team Penske, Power made as heavy work of the job as anyone in motor racing history, eking out his first IndyCar title by...

Right man for the job The feeling in the media centre after this year’s 98th Indianapolis 500 was that the right driver and team won the race. Ryan Hunter-Reay dominated the second half of this year’s fiercely competitive 500 aboard one of five Honda-powered Andretti Autosport entries. By winning a heated duel with Helio Castroneves and team-mate Marco Andretti, the 2012 IndyCar champion cast...

Returning to Indy, Monaco’s faded glamour, Rosberg’s guile Sometimes,” wrote Henry Manney in Road and Track half a century ago, “I wish I was in Indianapolis. But not often.” Time was when the Indianapolis 500 was always run – whatever the day of the week – on May 30, Memorial Day, and a public holiday in the USA. And time was, too, when virtually the whole of the month of May, which included two...

Mike Conway

A British driver who is picking his own path through American racing and sports cars At the end of last year the outlook was pretty bleak for Mike Conway. Before the final round of the IndyCar season at Fontana he announced that he was no longer comfortable driving on ovals and while fans and insiders alike understood his decision, the consensus seemed to be that his American single-seater career...

Indycar war is over

After 12 years of losing fans, sponsors and credibility, open-wheel racing in America has finally regained some semblance of common sense. Along with solidarity. There will be one series and one champion in 2008 after the Indy Racing League and Champ Car decided to bury the hatchet instead of each other. Tony George, who started this costly war when he launched the Indy Racing League in 1996,...

IRL winners feel economic gloom

In Indycar racing the economic downturn has made a bad situation dire. Despite winning races recently Paul Tracy, Justin Wilson and Ryan Hunter-Reay may all be without rides in 2009. Tracy (above, leading Wilson) has been trying to put together sponsorship to pay for a drive at Kevin Kalkhoven and Jimmy Vasser’s KV Racing team. Tracy has $1 million in potential personal sponsorship from energy...

Getting back to work

I am finally back home in the states after my travels through Europe in pursuit of what is supposed to be a hobby - my historic racing weekends at Silverstone, Goodwood and Spa. There were mixed results, with a crash at Goodwood which left me a little sore and a fantastic run at Spa in a Shelby Mustang. I’d never raced a Mustang before and I gotta say that to get my hands on one for the...

2013 Indianapolis 500

This year’s Indianapolis 500 was a fiercely competitive race with 14 drivers leading at least one lap and a long line of cars snaking along in pursuit of the leader. Polewinner Ed Carpenter led the opening laps before Tony Kanaan, Marco Andretti and Ryan Hunter-Reay established themselves as the leading contenders. Hunter-Reay looked the strongest as the race wound down, but Kanaan was able to...

Events of the Month

Daytona 24 Hours: Florida, USA Chip Ganassi's Grand-Am team has taken willful possession of Daytona's Rolex 24 Hours in recent years.

This year, as always, Ganassi...
