Thunderstorms as Tracy Grabs Fourth Podium of the Year

The CART Championship moved to Australia's east coast for Round 17, held on a street course at Surfers Paradise. Sunday's race got underway at 2:00pm as scheduled in the middle of a thunderstorm, but was stopped by a red flag caution after a big crash on the front straight of the first lap involving nine cars. The race was restarted at 3:27pm and shortened from the normal 70 laps to 50 laps. Further heavy rain 10 laps into the race brought out a full-course yellow flag. With the weather showing no signs of improving, the rest of the race was run under the yellow-flag caution forbidding overtaking, and so everything would be decided by the timing of the pit stops. Paul Tracy was lying in third position when the red flag fell again on lap 40, giving him his fourth podium place of the season.
