Starts at 12pm UK time on Sunday.


IRL IndyCar Series

– Indy Japan 300
– Twin Ring Motegi
– Motegi, Japan
– (16/17)
www.indycar.com

The annual visit to Japan for the IRL, to satisfy Honda who provide the engines (and possibly also sole tyre supplier Bridgestone-Firestone). Curiously this year it seems to have lost Honda title sponsorship, I’m sure it used to be the Honda Indy 300.

Of course this event is perhaps best remembered for being the first major international motorsport race won by a female, in 2007. The usual commentary was interesting enough but I really do love the enthusiasm of the Japanese commentary! With the echo it sounds like they are also live to the crowd as well as Japanese TV (interestingly, so is Jack Arute..)


(Thanks to Allen Wedge for tweeting this yesterday.)

This is the penultimate round of the series, the finale is at Homestead in Florida in 3 weeks time.

This event was last night, sorry!
