The Indy Japan 300 has a new champion. After Dan Wheldon monopolized the championship for the last two years, a new winner has raised: Helio Castroneves. The pilot claimed his second straight win of the season on the IndyCar Series. The first one was the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
Dan Wheldon was on the run towards becoming the first IndyCar Series pilot to triumph three straight years at the same track, but it just wouldn't happen because Castroneves had different plans.
This is the first time Castroneves wins in Japan. He stood out from the other drivers during the 200 lap race. By the moment he crossed the finish line last year's champion: Dan Wheldon was 6.3851 seconds away.
When Castroneves assured his victory, he got out of his strong Dallara car, and with his own traditional celebration, he climbed the fence to show everyone he had won at the 1.
5-mile Twin Ring Motegi circuit north of Tokyo.
The 93 points that the pilot had accumulated during the IRL championship worked out just fine for him as he got to start the race from the pole position. This, but most of all his driving skills helped him to lead for 184 laps and finally obtain the victory over all the other pilots.
