James Hinchcliffe - Q&A

I spent some time in England on vacation visiting family. Then I'll be heading to Vegas for a conference, back to England for the Autosport Awards and hopefully an outing in the Dan Wheldon Memorial kart race currently being organized, then finally I'll be competing in the Granja Viana 500 race in Brazil! I am looking forward to all of it!

Q:
Finally, what or who surprised you the most from your rookie year in the IZOD IndyCar Series?

James Hinchcliffe:
Wow, good question! I would have to say just the entire Indy 500 experience. You hear so much going into it for the first time, but nothing, and I mean nothing, prepares you. The whole month, start to finish is just the most incredible event. I'll always remember my first Indy 500 and I'll always look forward to my next.
