Bad Luck Hits Honda Drivers in Succession
Fernandez Best-Placed in Seventh

Round 16 of the CART Championship Series was held in Miami, Florida. Tony Kanaan grabbed pole position for the first time this season and, in severe conditions of high heat and humidity, drove superbly to keep his lead when the race started at 1:14pm. On lap 19, however, he was forced down through the field after making contact with Steve Dixon. Fellow Honda-powered Dario Franchitti was now in second place with Paul Tracy moving up to fourth from 16th place at the start. But in the latter stages of the race, Franchitti crashed into the tyre barrier on lap 89 and Tracy, in third place with only seven laps remaining, was put out of action by a rear-end collision. Luck was just not on the side of Honda today, and its highest finishing driver was Adrian Fernandez who crossed the line in seventh position.
