IndyCar Returns To Sonoma In 2013

The IZOD IndyCar® Series will visit the scenic Sonoma Valley for a ninth consecutive year in 2013, raceway officials announced today.

The GoPro Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma race weekend will take place Aug. 23-25 and will be the final permanent road course event of the 2013 INDYCAR season. The series will feature 19 races over 16 event weekends in 2013 with doubleheader weekends scheduled for the street-course events in Detroit, Toronto and Houston (new event). All events will be broadcast on either ABC or the NBC Sports Network.

“The speed, the close competition and the dynamic personalities of the IZOD IndyCar Series are just a terrific package for our fans,” said Steve Page, president and general manager of the raceway in Sonoma. “We look forward to this special weekend in 2013.”

Drivers encountered a modified Sonoma circuit (12 turns, 2.303 miles) in 2012 designed to create more passing at Turns 7, 9 and 11. The enhancements were positive as drivers posted the most exciting race since the series’ debut in Sonoma in 2005. Tempers even flared after the race between series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay and Alex Tagliani over an on-track incident at Turn 7. Ryan Briscoe (Team Penske) took the checkers in 2012, marking his first INDYCAR win in Sonoma.

“I think the track did a phenomenal job making adjustments (to the circuit),” said INDYCAR driver Graham Rahal.

The length and start time for the INDYCAR main event, as well as the support races for Sonoma, will be released at a later date. The Sonoma race will be broadcast on the NBC Sports Network.

“We are proud of the on-track product we provided in 2012,” said Randy Bernard, CEO, INDYCAR. “From the drivers to the new car, we demonstrated that the IZOD IndyCar Series is showcasing the best racing in the world.”
