Take a virtual lap, compliments of Immersion Media, of the 2.536-mile, 11-turn street circuit for the third Itaipava São Paulo Indy 300 presented by Nestle on April 29.
The course features the longest straightaway on the IZOD IndyCar Series schedule at nearly a mile.
“I think the Sao Paulo street course is very unique; it has got one of the longest and bumpiest straights followed by such a tight hairpin which requires heavy braking," said Takuma Sato, driver of the No. 15 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing car. "The complexes after the second straight are quite narrow and the car needs good traction as well as the ability to quickly change direction so it's challenging."
