Ganassi has confirmed that Ryan Briscoe will join the team in a fourth car for next month’s Indy 500, as predicted by AUTOSPORT last week. Briscoe will drive the No.8 entry alongside Dario Franchitti, Scott Dixon and Charlie Kimball in a deal that reunites him with the team that he began his IndyCar career with in 2005
April 7th, 2013
Ryan Briscoe is expected to return to Ganassi’s IndyCar line-up for a one-off appearance at the Indianapolis 500 in May. The Australian, currently out of a drive after Penske scaled down to two full-time cars at the end of last year, spent a season with Ganassi in 2005. That stint ended with a heavy crash at Chicagoland that ruled him out of the final two rounds, but the 31-year-old has reportedly agreed terms to be reunited with the team in a fourth car at Indianapolis.

Graham Rahal has not ruled out a return to the Ganassi IndyCar team in the future, although he remains convinced that moving on was the best option at this point in his career.

Montoya will team up with Ganassi’s multiple Grand-Am champions Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas plus IndyCar driver Charlie Kimball in the #01 entry.

Alex Zanardi’s former CART team boss Chip Ganassi has praised the Italian following his handbike victory at the Paralympics on Wednesday. The two-time CART champion won the gold medal in the H4 time trial at Brands Hatch, 11 years after losing his legs in a Champ Car crash at the Lausitz oval.

Sonoma’s recent track revisions met with a positive response as IndyCar drivers tested at the Californian circuit ahead of next weekend’s race. As revealed by AUTOSPORT, Turns 7, 9 and 11 were all remodelled in the hope of increasing overtaking opportunities following consultation with drivers, officials and team bosses .

Helio Castroneves denied Takuma Sato a maiden IndyCar victory in a close-fought battle around the Edmonton airport circuit. Castroneves and Sato had made the lead contest their own in the final stint, but the Brazilian was forced to work hard to keep Sato behind him. The Rahal Letterman Lanigan driver was the quickest driver on the circuit towards the end of the race and closed down a gap of more than three seconds to get close enough to have a couple of lunges at his Penske rival
July 21st, 2012
Dario Franchitti led Scott Dixon to a Ganassi one-two in the third IndyCar practice session at Edmonton. On a drying track, the name at the top of the timing screens changed constantly in the final few minutes before Franchitti made the spot his own with a 1m16.8904s, bettering Dixon’s time by 0.0263 seconds
July 8th, 2012
Ryan Hunter-Reay completed a hat-trick of IndyCar wins and moved into the championship lead with victory in this weekend’s race around the streets of Toronto. Andretti Autosport driver Hunter-Reay, who came into the weekend having won the last two outings at Milwaukee and Iowa, benefited from pitting just before Ganassi’s Graham Rahal crashed and brought out a yellow flag early on, which put him in a good positon to capitalise when the cars that had stayed out made their own stops under caution a couple of laps later.
July 7th, 2012
Dario Franchitti produced a last-gasp effort to deny Will Power pole position in qualifying for this weekend’s IndyCar race on the Toronto street circuit. Power (Penske) had moved to the top of the screens with his last flying lap, but Ganassi driver Franchitti’s decision to stay out for one more stab at the top spot and was rewarded with a 59.3510s, putting him ahead of Power by just 0.02 seconds.
July 6th, 2012
Dario Franchitti continued to set the pace on the opening day of practice for this weekend’s IndyCar race in Toronto, the Scot backing up his fastest time in the morning by again going quickest in the second session. Franchitti delivered a best time of 1m00.2786s to put himself ahead of Schmidt Hamilton’s Simon Pagenaud by 0.1 seconds, although the Ganassi driver was forced to sit out the closing minutes after glancing the barriers.
June 23rd, 2012
Juan Pablo Montoya remains confident changes to his team will bear fruit during the year, following a disappointing NASCAR Sprint Cup season thus far for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing. During the winter Earnhardt Ganassi hired a new technical director, new team manager and a new crew chief for Montoya, as team boss Chip Ganassi attempted to move on from what he described as a “pathetic” 2011 and return to the form that saw EGR taking four victories and challenging for the championship in 2010. Fifteen races into the 2012 season, drivers Jamie McMurray and Montoya rank 18th and 19th in the points respectively, their best results being a seventh for the American, the 2010 Daytona 500 winner, and two eighth places for Montoya, the latest coming last week at Michigan.
June 17th, 2012
IndyCar race director Beaux Barfield says that a combination of human error and a computer glitch were responsible for Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon mistakenly being issued with a drive-through penalty at Milwaukee. Dixon was penalised for jumping a restart, despite that restart being waved off moments later when leader Helio Castroneves went too early, meaning that the actual restart did not come until the following lap. According to Barfield, the timing system and replay system in race control had fallen out of synch by 36s, which meant that the first restart on the replay system corresponded almost exactly with the second restart on the timing system
June 16th, 2012
Ryan Hunter-Reay took his first victory of the year in a rain-delayed IndyCar race at Milwaukee. Rain showers half an hour before the scheduled start time forced a 90 minute delayed to allow the weather to improve and the track to be cleared. Once things got underway Hunter-Reay was in contention from the opening stages, but he only took the lead for the first time when Helio Castroneves slowed on lap 141

A late mistake by Graham Rahal helped Justin Wilson to take his first oval win in a dramatic IndyCar race at Texas on Saturday night.
June 3rd, 2012
Scott Dixon won a bizarre IndyCar race around the streets of Belle Isle in Detroit, where severe problems with the track surface forced a two-hour delay just as the event approached its scheduled halfway point. Ganassi driver Dixon started from pole and led every lap, but the race will be remembered for the enormous strips of asphalt that were torn from the track’s surface, forcing race control to call for a red flag to allow track workers to implement a fix. The trackwork came too late for Andretti Autosport’s James Hinchcliffe, who hit a chunk of the debris and was spat into the tyres on lap 45
June 2nd, 2012
Scott Dixon will start Sunday’s IndyCar race in Detroit from pole position after winning a close battle with Will Power in qualifying at Belle Isle.
June 2nd, 2012
Takuma Sato says that there are no hard feelings between himself and Dario Franchitti about their final-lap crash while fighting for the lead in last weekend’s Indy 500.
May 28th, 2012
Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti has paid tribute to engine manufacturer Honda for the technical step that it was able to take between qualifying last week and Sunday’s race. Franchitti and Ganassi team-mate Scott Dixon qualified in the middle of the field on a grid where rival Chevrolet had locked out nine of the top 10 places. But the Scot, who became the 10th third-time winner of the race with his victory, said that he was surprised by the extent to which Honda had managed to turn things around.
