Long Beach IndyCar: Takuma Sato claims first win

Postby Pepper » Mon 22 Apr, 2013 7:07 am

Takuma Sato claimed his first IndyCar victory in a chaotic race around the streets of Long Beach.

Sato ran among the frontrunners throughout the afternoon, and moved into the lead as the field cycled through its pitstops during a caution period on lap 31.

From there, both he and his AJ Foyt Racing team were flawless. Sato was quick when he needed to be, looked after his tyres, enjoyed perfect service in the pits, and never appeared to have any problems managing the gap between himself and his pursuers.
