Indy 500 Starting Grid

The starting line up for the Indianapolis 500 has been settled.

As reported previously on this blog, Scot Dario Franchitti has qualified in P3 for this Sunday's Indy 500. Other qualifiers of interest to British fans are former F1 driver Justin Wilson in P15, Dan Wheldon in P18 and youngster Mike Conway in P27.

Conway did well to qualify following an accident at an earlier Indy 500 practice session.

Highest female qualifier is Danica Patrick in P10.

Some food for thought for Ecclestone and Co..... starting prices for tickets at the Indy 500 are only US $ 20!

Due to Ecclestone's insatiable greed for ever bigger profits, ticket prices in Formula 1 are getting out of the reach of the average hard working motor sports fan.

Imagine how many new fans could be attracted to the sport if gate prices at the British Grand Prix started at onbly £ 20 or £ 30?
