Franchitti Takes Third Win of Season, First Ever Oval Triumph
Fifth Victory for V8 Engine

The CART Championship moved from the US to the UK for Round 15, held at Rockingham Motor Speedway. In this fourth oval course race of the season, Michael Andretti was holding his own in the leading group early on, having started second after qualification. He dropped back, however, after being penalized for a speeding violation in the pit lane on his second pit stop. Teammate Dario Franchitti, meanwhile, found himself at the back of the field after stalling on his first visit to the pits, but later his pit timing strategy worked like a charm and by the closing stages he had moved close to the front. He suddenly found himself in the lead after his final pit stop, and managed to hold off his rivals to take the checkered flag. The Scot was delighted to score his third victory of the season, and first ever on an oval circuit, on home European soil.
