Edmonton: Practice 3

Dario Fanchitti set the pace toward the end of the Saturday morning practice hour, his lap of 1:16.8904s less than a tenth faster than Scott Dixon and Will Power.
Overnight rain storms reset the 2.24-mile, 13-turn temporary track at Edmonton City Center Airport to factory default conditions, with times only really picking up toward the end of the hour-long third practice session on Saturday morning.

A well-timed run allowed Ganassi's Dario Franchitti to claim the honours with a lap of 1:16.8904s just a minute before the chequered flag came out, during a late flurry of flying laps from most of the field that seemed like a full-blooded rehearsal for qualifying that will be held in the afternoon at 1pm local time (8pm BST).
