Long Beach to honour Andretti

Walk of Fame to gain another big name at April IndyCar round.
Michael Andretti will be honoured at the fifth Annual Long Beach Motorsports Walk of Fame induction ceremony on 15 April.

The accomplished driver, now chairman, president and chief executive officer of Andretti Autosport, will be recognised alongside 1985 Indianapolis 500 winner Danny Sullivan this season, and will join past recipients of the honour that include Mario Andretti, Al Unser Jr, Bobby Rahal and Parnelli Jones.

Andretti's first win took place at the 1986 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. He also took the chequered flag in the Toyota Grand Prix in 2002, his final victory as a driver. With 42 victories to his name, Andretti is the winningest driver in CART history. He also boasts the title of winningest owner in Indy Racing League history with 34 victories.
