IndyCar Lights - all the speed and half the calories

The up and coming racers (just look at Canada's James Hinchliffe) of the IndyCar Lights join the IndyCar circuit and they had a full schedule at the Honda Indy Toronto 2011. There were thirteen cars entered into the race and they all used the Dallara chassis and Firestone tires. Andretti Autosports' Stefan Wilson won the race, team mate Peter Dempsey finished second while Gustavo Yacaman was third.

Stefan said of the Honda Indy Toronto "I love this circuit and city, so the 25th anniversary race is a really special win for me. We're still a long way out for the championship. Right now, it's about getting race wins."

The field of drivers were Gustavo Yacaman of car #2, Victor Carbone #3, Jorge Goncalvez #4, Stefan Wilson #5, Esteban Guerrieri #7, Anders Krohn #9, Josef Newgarden #11, David Ostella #16, Victor Garcia #22, Peter Dempsey #26, Duarte Ferreira #28, Bruno Andrade #29 and Daniel Herrington #77.

Some of the drivers are superstars in training but overall they are generally less well known than the IndyCar drivers. The Firestone Lights are the farm team of the big leagues - even their paddock wasn't fenced in and you didn't need a special pass to walk around the temporary garages.
