Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg // IZOD IndyCar Series 2012

Published by PeteS2K

It's time for a fresh start in Indycar! Things get started on the streets of St Petersburg, which as the adopted home of Dan Wheldon seems only fitting after the tragic events at the season finale in Las Vegas. It will be an emotional weekend at the track where Dan won in 2005, he took the lead at Turn 7 in that race and in his honour the road there has been named Dan Wheldon Way. Also named in Dan's honour is the new car for this season, the DW12.The fight for the title will likely be between the Ganassi (Honda) of Dario Franchitti and Will Power's Penske (Chevrolet). Joining Tony Kanaan in the KV Racing Technology team is his 'brother' and F1 legend Rubens Barrichello. With the increased downforce and carbon brakes the DW12 brings this year to Indycar, it couldn't be a better time for Rubinho to make the switch. I have no idea who will be victorious around St Petersburg. I'm just going to sit back and enjoy finding out who Holly Wheldon will be presenting the winner trophy to.
