Racing in Japan

Posted on: September 14, 2010 | Comments(4) | Race Tracks | By: Arni

I’m heading to Japan on Wednesday with most of the IZOD IndyCar Series staff and the drivers and teams. Getting there is pretty painless for us – it’s not unlike any other flight to a race, only longer. So what does it take to move the IZOD IndyCar Series across the Pacific?

It turns out it’s not that different a process from getting the people there. It takes a lot of cooperation and patience needed between series officials, the teams, the ground crew and Nippon Cargo Air – which transported some very precious freight.

For most teams, the journey to Japan started as soon as the checkered flag fell in Kentucky.
