IndyCar Series 2023 preview

The IndyCar Series is back for another helping of tire-shredding American motorsports action. Coming up: IndyCar is off to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, the 2.258-mile, 13-turn natural-terrain road track, for the Honda Indy 200 on Sunday 2nd July. 

Chip Ganassi Racing’s Álex Palou leads the driver's standings with 324 points after scoring his first IndyCar win of 2023 on the Indianapolis road course, and winning the last two events. Can repeat that performance this month? Former F1 racer Marcus Ericsson is second on 250 points.

Last year’s thrilling series saw Will Power crowned Drivers’ champion after winning just one race. Things haven't gone to plan this year, however. He's currently eighth in the standings, just ahead of veteran racer Scott Dixon, in pursuit of a seventh IndyCar Series title.

This year’s series marks the last before a switch from 2.2-litre engines to hybrid power for 2024, but there are some significant rule changes for this year also. Double points for winning teams have been scrapped for this series, while the new season sees the introduction of 100% renewable fuel for the cars (take that, F1).

Featuring 17 races on 15 circuits across North America, the 2023 Series continues with a season highlight of the Indy 500 on Memorial Day. The final race is at Laguna Seca in Monterey, California, on the 10th of September.
