IndyCar could do with a race in South America as there is a very big motorsports fan base. CART raced in Rio from 1996 - 2000 at JacarepaguŠ on the speedway section of the track called 'Emerson Fittipaldi Speedway'. It was built over for the Rio Olympics.

If it goes ahead, let's hope it's not as short lived as the race which was held in S„o Paulo, from 2010 - 2013.

Formulahistory should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I highly doubt that Juncos will enter 2 full-season entries. Perhaps one full-season and a parttime.



Carlin will drive with Kimball I think.


Wehrlein will race 4 events with Schmidt what I have heard.

Schmidt will expand to 3 cars? That would be awesome, but haven't read about it.

It seems like the guys in Rio were trying to catch the media attention with F1 in Sao Paulo this weekend. You'd assume Indy would have an announcement already for a race in 2020 but stranger things have happened. But I doubt we'll see that any time soon

EffectiveSprinkles has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Busy time for him. Spa WEC, then Indy month, then back to France for Le Mans test day. Good to see he's keeping busy

He won't be competing in the IndyCar Grand Prix at IMS, so that will give a bit of a breather.

Help me understand, please.

"McLaren Racing announced Saturday that it will contest the 103rd Running of the Indianapolis 500 in 2019 with Fernando Alonso at the wheel."
and:
"McLaren has won the Indy 500 three times, once in 1972 supplying Team Penske and driver Mark Donohue, and twice as a works entry, in 1974 and 1976, with driver Johnny Rutherford. In 2019, it will return as McLaren Racing."

They sure as heck don't design and fabricate the cars (only Dallara can do that, or am I missing a change?), so, 'not following as closely as I used to, what, exactly, is "their" (McLaren's) participation or contesting?

Besides the company's name on the side of an Andretti Autosport car, does any of the company's staff contribute to the physical effort?

If not it's like saying any sponsor...oh, Marlboro or Patron fer instance...participate in racing. I understand contributing funds but....."participating"....."contesting".....?

'Not stirring the pot, 'just don't get it....

According to stuff Iíve read, it will be a McLaren run car using their own personnel, but separate to the F1 team...... Also Chevrolet engine suggested, as Honda relationship not at its best.....

According to this article, http://classic.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/139974

"The McLaren Racing IndyCar squad is expected to again use some Andretti support in 2019 but will be run with direct McLaren involvement and an expected Chevrolet engine deal."
