BOURDAIS WINS GOLD COAST INDY 300!


Frenchman Sebastien Bourdais powers his Newman Haas Team car, to win an action packed Indy 300, on the Gold Coast today in perfect weather!

Bourdais took the chequered flag 9.130 seconds ahead of A J Allmendinger, with a further 31.852sec back to another American, Jimmy Vasser, in third place in the 57-lap race.

My favourite Paul Tracy, was involved in a crash at the beginning, and after repairs came back and was leading after 20 laps, but was forced to withdraw because his engine was smoking. Ah well, there is always next year.

Bourdais, the only driver to finish every race this year, has won six races this seaosn. He has 344 points in the championship standings, 78 ahead of Spanish team-mate Oriol Servia, with Englishman Justin Wilson third (231). The final race of the series takes place in Mexico City on November 6.

The Indy saw record crowds again, and it is now the most attended of any sporting event in Australia, that is saying something for a sports mad country!
