Well that was a cracking race. Really hard-fought win by Hunter-Reay, that was no cruise from pole position. Thought he might even be heading for retirement when he had contact with Castroneves.
Great drive by Dixon too, what does he need to do to get a win at Barber! Second for four years in a row.
Good effort from Power to get back into the race after a poor start and restart but he just gave himself too much to do.
Allmendinger and Wilson had good runs going until they hit trouble in the pits. And Kimball was very impressive in fourth.
But for me the real star of the race was the track. Isn’t it great to watch cars racing on a circuit with gradient, grass and gravel instead of a snooker table-smooth landscape composed entirely of tarmac? And the cars looked quick too – no surprise given they were three-and-a-half seconds faster than last year. Can we have the other American Grand Prix here please?
