Indycar 2013 Calendar

Postby NewMrMe » Thu 04 Oct, 2012 9:21 pm

The 2013 Indycar calendar has been released.

Edmonton has gone from the series but Pocono and Houston have been added. Indycars last raced on the Pocono oval in 1989. The Houston race will be the same street circuit used for the final Champ Car season in 2007.

Three venues, Detroit, Toronto and Houston will be double-headers with races on Saturday and Sunday.

The return of Pocono means that the Super-Speedway triple crown will be revived. This was previously contested between 1971 and 1980 and was a mini-series consisting of the Indy 500, the Pocono 500 and the California 500 (which was previously held at Ontario Speedway, now at the Auto Club Speedway). If a driver wins all 3 they will get a bonus of $1,000,000. If a driver wins 2 of the 3 they will get a bonus of $250,000.

The Detroit street circuit will also switch to the layout used by Champ Car between 1998 and 2001.
