    The weather for GPLB looks pretty good. A bit on the cool side, with some morning fog and clouds through the day. But all races should be dry.

    IndyCar, TUSC and the Pirelli World Challenge all in the same place on one weekend.

    Almost makes me want to live in LA.

    Long Beach is a fantastic circuit, a proper street course, really looking forward to this one.

    @ajokay – and for a mere $75 3-day General Admission ticket. You can also get a lot closer to the drivers and cars (with paddock pass) than at a typical F1 race.

    Looking at the opening practice results, Ganassi and Aleshin\Huertas have a lot of work to do.

    Here’s a practice start and a couple of laps from Simon Pagenaud’s visor cam!

    It’ll be an even more interesting viewpoint when we get to the ovals.

    Pagenaud up top in the second practice session, looks like Honda has an advantage based on the times so far.

    Ryan Hunter-Reay is on pole position for Sunday’s race at Long Beach, sharing the front row with Andretti team mate James Hinchcliffe.

    Sebastien Bourdais has his best starting position since Toronto last year, and Jack Hawksworth is an impressive fifth.

    Last year’s winner Takuma Sato had two of his fastest laps deducted or “qualifying interference”, while round one winner Will Power went out in the first phase of qualifying for only the second time in his IndyCar career.

    Here’s the grid, see you on F1 Fanatic Live for the race!

    1. (28) Ryan Hunter-Reay, Dallara-Honda, 01:07.8219 (104.462)

    Hawksworth’s been very quick over one lap, let’s see if he backs it up on the race.

    16. (2) Juan Pablo Montoya, Dallara-Chevy, 01:08.3649 (103.632)

    20. (7) Mikhail Aleshin, Dallara-Honda, 01:08.4321 (103.530)
    21. (18) Carlos Huertas, Dallara-Honda, 01:08.7051 (103.119)

    Looks like these guys still have a lot of work to do :)

    @magnificent-geoffrey – Well, He is a hero for someone less fortunate like me, because I live in a country where there’s no IndyCar coverage. Only these people (LP2008+Couple of Youtube uploaders) make it possible for me to watch this fascinating series.

    You should also consider yourself fortunate that Indycar isn’t like FOM when it comes to third parties uploading their content to youtube ;-)
