Organization of the Sao Paulo Indy 300 faces problems on the race track

The Brazilian Tony Kanaan did not like the training conducted today on the Anhembi race track.

"I hope it doesn't rain tomorrow. If it was hard during a dry weather, I don't want even think about a rainy day," according to Kanaan. "It's a super wavy track and it's a project of the engineer Tony Cotman. Several people complained and he said: that's the way it is."

Kanaan also said that the worst stretch is the Sambadrome one, because it is very slippery. No one is able to accelerate too much at that part. "During the Carnival week it's applied a material to make the floor shiny. There are several ways to leave the floor more abrasive. Something can happen over there. "According to the pilot who was the third, straight behind Scott Dixon and Ryan Briscoe.

Because of this issue of the slicking track, there is the idea of changing the starting place for the Marginal, rather than the Sambadrome.

Ryan Briscoe also commented on it. "It's a little dangerous, hopefully we can improve by tomorrow. The weather is good, the layout of the track is good, just need to see the part that is very smooth," said the pilot.

On the Indy championship, the stretch of the Marginal Tietê is the longest one, but there are some trepidations spots. "Not that many, but has three or four that are very large. I'm just concerned about security", Kanaan said, referring specifically to the transition from the Marginal's stretch part to the Sambódromo's wavy and grip. It was exactly after this passage that the Venezuelan Milka Duno lost control of the car and caused an accident during the training.

The event's organizers will try to solve this problem overnight, but today all pilots have had the chance to see what they can face tomorrow in the race that starts at 1pm.
