April 2nd, 2012
Lotus-powered IndyCar teams’ preparations for next month’s Indy 500 have been dealt a blow with the news that the manufacturer will not have enough engines ready to participate in the test at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Wednesday. The test is aimed at giving the teams and engine manufacturers a head-start on getting the new technical packages tuned for the series’ biggest race, as well as allowing Dallara to track-test its Indy-specific aero package
April 1st, 2012
Will Power came through from ninth on the grid to win the Barber Motorsports Park IndyCar race. The Penske driver made it to the front by the final stint, and was eventually able to edge away after a tussle with Ganassi’s Scott Dixon.

April 1st, 2012
Alex Tagliani has become the second driver to be issued a 10-place grid penalty for Sunday’s IndyCar race at Barber Motorsports Park after the Bryan Herta Autosport team was forced to switch the Lotus unit in his car after qualifying. Oriol Servia of fellow Lotus team Dreyer & Reinbold was given the same sanction earlier in the weekend. Both fell foul of Rule 15.6.1 of the sporting regulations, which prevents unauthorised engine changes unless the engine fails during a race
March 31st, 2012
Oriol Servia has been issued with a 10-place grid penalty for this weekend’s IndyCar race at Barber Motorsports Park following an unauthorised engine change. The Dreyer & Reinbold team changed the Lotus unit in the Spaniard’s car after Friday’s second practice session, although it was not immediately clear whether it change was precautionary or due to a failure
March 30th, 2012
Heavy rain resulted in a wash-out of Friday’s second IndyCar practice session at Barber Motorsports Park, although Takuma Sato was quickest of the drivers who did venture out to brave the conditions. The Rahal Letterman Lanigan racer set a best time of 1m18.8684s, although he only completed three laps before retreating to the team trailer. Dragon’s Sebastien Bourdais was second-fastest with a time 0.4 slower than that set by Sato, with Ganassi’s Scott Dixon rounding out the top three.
March 30th, 2012
Will Power led a Penske one-two in opening practice for this weekend’s IndyCar Series event at Barber Motorsports Park. Takuma Sato completed the top three for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, ahead of Sarah Fisher Hartman’s rookie Josef Newgarden – who had led the way in the opening half hour, reserved for drivers outside the top 10 in the championship. Rubens Barrichello was fifth in the fastest KV car
March 25th, 2012
Mike Conway has gone quickest in the final warm-up session ahead of today’s IndyCar season-opener at St Petersburg. On a track drying from overnight rain, the AJ Foyt driver produced a best time of 1m03.2891 to put himself just a few hundredths clear of Rahal Letterman Lanigan’s Takuma Sato, who’d held the top spot earlier in the session. The tricky conditions prompted a cautious approach throughout the field, which was reflected in the times – of the top six qualifiers, only Ryan Hunter-Reay figured anywhere near the top of the timesheets, while polesitter Will Power finished up 20th
March 23rd, 2012
Scott Dixon opened the 2012 IndyCar season by setting the fastest time in the first practice session at St Petersburg. The Chip Ganassi Racing team waited until the hour-long session was half over before sending Dixon and team-mate Dario Franchitti out onto the track, and Dixon set his best time of 1m03.0406s with 11 minutes still on the clock.
January 23rd, 2012
Oriol Servia says he has no concerns about Lotus’s IndyCar engine programme, despite the manufacturer running several months behind its rivals in terms of preparation. A Lotus-powered car hit the track for the first time just over a week ago, with Simona de Silvestro and HVM Racing undertaking the early test duties. Rival engine suppliers Chevrolet and Honda have been testing on track since late September last year.
January 19th, 2012
Lotus has declared itself pleased with the results of the first two tests of the engine that it will take into this year’s IndyCar season.
January 17th, 2012
Oriol Servia will move to Dreyer & Reinbold for the 2012 IndyCar Series season. The 37-year-old Spaniard finished fourth in last year’s standings with Newman/Haas – which subsequently closed its IndyCar operation – in his strongest year since taking the runner-up spot in the 2005 Champ Car World Series with the same squad.
October 14th, 2011
Tony Kanaan claimed his first fully-fledged pole position for KV Racing Technology as the IndyCar Series title contenders were upstaged in Las Vegas qualifying. Championship rivals Will Power and Dario Franchitti will start back on row nine, with Oriol Servia, Kentucky winner Ed Carpenter and Indianapolis polesitter Alex Tagliani completing the line-up on the front two rows
October 14th, 2011
Tony Kanaan was quickest in final practice ahead of qualifying for the IndyCar title decider at Las Vegas. The Brazilian KV Racing Technology driver edged out Oriol Servia (Newman/Haas) by 0.0246 seconds. Andretti Autosport’s Ryan Hunter-Reay was third, ahead of Ganassi driver Scott Dixon, Kanaan’s team-mate EJ Viso
October 1st, 2011
IndyCar championship leader Will Power gave his title bid another boost by taking pole position at Kentucky Speedway, while his title rival Dario Franchitti was only 11th. Penske driver Power’s two-lap average of 219.283mph allowed him to beat Ganassi’s Graham Rahal to the top spot by a relatively comfortable margin. Rookies James Hinchcliffe (Newman/Haas) and JR Hildebrand (Panther) enjoyed very strong qualifying runs to claim third and fifth, split by an equally impressive showing from Sarah Fisher Racing’s Ed Carpenter
October 1st, 2011
Scott Dixon kept up his early momentum at Kentucky by topping an ultra-close second session, while there was again little to separate title rivals Dario Franchitti and Will Power. The 2009 polesitter rose to the top of the timesheets with 15 minutes remaining and was never displaced, as several yellow flags for track debris disrupted the momentum of the session. Ryan Hunter-Reay (Andretti) moved into second in the final two minutes, following the third and final yellow flag break.
September 18th, 2011
Scott Dixon edged away from Will Power to win the final Motegi IndyCar race, as Power took the points lead after title rival Dario Franchitti was involved in a collision. Ganassi driver Dixon headed Power’s Penske Dallara throughout the 63 laps, pulling away a little in the closing stages after they had run a second or so apart for most of the distance. But any frustration Power felt at being unable to get on terms with Dixon was alleviated by knowledge of Franchitti’s messy day
September 17th, 2011
Scott Dixon denied Will Power pole position for the IndyCar Series’ Motegi round, but Power will still start seven places ahead of title rival Dario Franchitti, who could only manage ninth. The result is only the second time all year that Penske driver Power has been beaten to pole on a road course, with Dixon (Ganassi) having already been the man who ended his pole streak at Lexington last month. Power hung back early in the Fast Six session, letting his rivals fight for provisional pole
September 5th, 2011
Will Power will be hoping the 2011 IndyCar title race mirrors the Castrol EDGE Rankings after getting the upper hand over chief rival Dario Franchitti this week. Power took a comprehensive victory in the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix to cut his points deficit to Franchitti to just five points. Three rounds ago, the gap had been 62
September 3rd, 2011
Will Power went quickest in the IndyCar practice session around the streets of Baltimore. The Australian established himself at the top early on with a 1m22.1384s effort, and aside from a brief intervention by Newman/Haas man James Hinchcliffe, remained the benchmark for the rest of the morning.
