Welcome to the central discussion thread for the IndyCar Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Road Course configuration in Indiana.
It feels like a lifetime ago since the IndyCar field took to the streets of Long Beach last month, and this weekend marks the start of the most important month of the series schedule - the build up to the 103rd running of the famous Indy 500 this May 26th.
Before the teams and drivers begin preparation for the biggest race on the calendar, the series have the not inconsiderable challenge of taking on the road course configuration of the track to get through, with the IndyCar field taking on the IndyCar Grand Prix this weekend around the layout that remains very similar to that used for Formula One racing back in the early 2000’s.
With the season already proving to be far too close to predict, as many as 10 drivers could be in with a realistic shout of victory come Sunday afternoon.
Series veterans Scott Dixon and Ryan Hunter-Ray will be looking to kick start their campaign heading into Indy, and previous winners this year Josef Newgarden, Colton Herta,Takuma Sato and Alex Rossi all have more to prove if they want to develop a strong challenge for overall championship honors come season end at Laguna Seca in September.
