Ana Beatriz shows the scope of the new stadium.

Two of the biggest sporting events to take place in Sao Paulo over the next 18 months collided April 30 when IZOD IndyCar Series driver Ana Beatriz visited the worksite of the Arena de Sao Paulo, which will serve as the city’s World Cup venue next summer.

Beatriz, a native of Sao Paulo, was excited to visit the stadium, which is located in the eastern part of Brazil’s largest city — 13 miles from Anhembi Park, the home of Brazil’s IZOD IndyCar Series event. The project is about 70 percent complete and expected to be completed by year’s end.

“Arena de Sao Paulo will be the most modern stadium in Brazil,” said Beatriz, who will drive the No. 18 Ipiranga Honda for Dale Coyne Racing in the fourth Itaipava Sao Paulo Indy 300 presented by Nestle on May 5. “It was cool to have the opportunity to visit it before it’s ready and understand the whole project.”

In addition to hosting five World Cup events, including the opening match of the tournament and a semifinal, Arena de Sao Paulo will serve as the home stadium for Corinthians, Sao Paulo’s most popular soccer team.

    I believe what you said was actually very reasonable.

    But, what about this? what if you added a little information? I ain’t suggesting your information is
    not good, but what if you added a title that makes people
    want more? I mean Beatriz visits World Cup venue in progress | The Official Blog
    of the IndyCar Series is kinda boring. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write
    article headlines to grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab
    people excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.
