Cinema » Mid Ohio Indy AA Pre Race Report
Canadian James Hinchcliffe, who finished fifth at the 2012 Indy 200 from the Mid-Ohio Sport Car Course, has recorded three wins in the IZOD IndyCar Series so far this season and is eighth in the points standings entering this weekend’s 90-lap race. IndyCar’s 14th round of competition in the 2013 season will be Hinchcliffe’s 45th career start and third start at Mid-Ohio.
“Mid-Ohio is one of the great road courses in the country. It’s one of the most fun places to physically drive an IndyCar – I love racing there. Last year the GoDaddy Chevy was quick but we had a problem in qualifying, so went for a three (pit) stops in the race. It was a blast because I got to run qualifying laps all day! I was worn out at the end but it paid off as we got up to fifth. We should have a solid car, and some added track time with the test, so we just want to get there and get to work!”
