NEWS & NOTES:
 
15TH INDYCAR RACE AT MID-OHIO FOR RLL RACING
The Honda Indy 200 will mark the 15th Indy car event for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing (RLL) here and first since 2008 when Ryan Hunter-Reay started 15th and finished 10th for the team. The team also competed in the Atlantic Series race here in 2003 with Danica Patrick, has competed in ALMS races here in 2007 and from 2009-2011 and one SCCA event in 2008 as part of the ALMS weekend.  The highest IndyCar finish for the team here is two third place finishes (Rahal 1997, 1998) and the highest start is pole (Herta 1997).  Another front row start came in 1999 (Herta; 2nd).  Prior to the 2012 event, the team prepared a total of 23 Indy car entries for drivers Bobby Rahal (1992-98), Mike Groff (1994), Raul Boesel (1995), Bryan Herta (1996-99), Max Papis (1999-2001), Jimmy Vasser (2002), Michel Jourdain Jr. (2002-03) and Ryan Hunter-Reay (2007-2008). The team also prepared a Toyota Atlantic entry (Danica Patrick 2003), seven entries for ALMS events in 2007 and 2009-2011, and one SCCA entry in 2007 (details available upon request).  The team has earned TWO Indy car podiums (3rd – Rahal 1997, 1998), 9 top-five’s and 13 top-10 Indy car finishes at the track as well as three ALMS podiums (3rd – 2009, 2010, 2011).  The No. 15 entry for Takuma Sato will bring the Indy car total to 24 entries in 2012. 
 
SATO ON THE CHALLENGES OF MID-OHIO AND HIS BEST SERIES FINISH PRIOR TO JOINING RLL
The 2012 Honda Indy 200 will mark Sato’s third race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Prior to joining Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing in 2012, his previous series-best finish was fourth at Mid-Ohio in 2011 after he started ninth.  He qualified third in 2010 but retired in 25th due to contact.  Both races were with KV Racing Technology. Since joining RLL he has bettered his 2011 Mid-Ohio finish of fourth place – first with a third place in Round 4 in Sao Paulo, Brazil and again with a second place finish in the previous race in Edmonton.  He enjoys the Mid-Ohio course and hopes to carry the momentum to this event.
“It was a tough-one,” said Sato of last year’s race. “It was a good race but we did everything we could and still ONLY finished 4th which was actually quite disappointing especially I was very competitive in my first year here so we expected more.  Mid-Ohio has got a bit of everything. There are high-speed corners, a relatively long straight, heavy braking, and a good complex (series of corners) with elevation changes.  Some of the corners don’t have a big run-off so it makes for a good challenge but it's a typical beautiful road course. You need a good rhythm to go fast especially in the complex part. A couple of corners are blind and the braking zone for one of them is off camber so that makes for a good challenge too.”
 
SATO ON WHAT IT WOULD MEAN TO BRING RLL THEIR FIRST INDYCAR WIN AT MID-OHIO
“Any win means a lot but I think a win at Mid-Ohio would be very nice as Rahal Letterman Lanigan has a race shop very close by.  And I am sure there will be many guests and family members of the team that come this weekend. Put no more pressure (on me) please!” Sato added jokingly.
 
SATO ON EXPECTATIONS FOR MID-OHIO AFTER A SECOND PLACE FINISH IN THE PREVIOUS RACE
“Well, we should be very competitive. We were generally quite strong in street course races and not so much on road courses but I thought it was quite a positive test last week and I feel team has good momentum too. Mid-Ohio is typically very close racing and everyone else will be very competitive too but there is no reason why we won't be there right on the top group.”
 
SATO FINDS SIMILARITIES BETWEEN MID-OHIO AND OTHER COURSES HE RACES ON IN ENGLAND
“Perhaps it’s not a huge track like some of the Formula One tracks where I raced but I like this little Mid-Ohio course.  It reminds me of the time when I was racing in Great Britain.  The track scenery and atmosphere has got so many similarities; like maybe an Oulton Park. The fans here are great, very knowledgeable and genuine big motor racing fans which is very much like those British F3 days too!”
 
SATO ON THE MID-OHIO TEST – A FEW DAYS LATER
A total of 24 drivers tested at Mid-Ohio last Thursday, July 26, including Takuma Sato. After a few days to absorb the experience, Sato is pleased with the outcome and expects the information that has been analyzed by Technical Director Jay O’Connell, Race Engineer Gerry Hughes and assistant engineer Wayne Gross will put the team many steps ahead when the first practice session takes place on Friday, August 3.
            “It was a productive test. Although we could achieve probably only half of what we wanted to due to the weather conditions, still it was very valuable for us — specifically at Mid-Ohio but generally on other courses too. We haven't done any testing at road courses after the season started so we have a long list of things to go through and try.  So even though we only tested a few items, our initial set-up here is much more prepared than if we had not run. It was very good test to understand how this new DW12 works at Mid-Ohio.”
 
SATO ON IF THE TEST PROVIDED THE USUAL ADVANTAGE SINCE EVERYONE TESTED
“Maybe the test was not necessarily an advantage since everyone tested but it definitely reduced our disadvantages. Our engineers are carefully analyzing all the data we collected from the test and that gives us good understanding of the car and the track characteristics. Our initial set-up this weekend is much higher quality than at other events so that we can go straight into the outstanding testing programs right away when practice starts.”
 
SATO ON THE IMPORTANCE OF EARNING A GOOD MID-OHIO PIT LOCATION FROM EDMONTON QUALIFYING
“Mid-Ohio has very tight pit boxes so everything will help. It will be useful even in practice that we won't need to wait until everyone goes (on track) to make space so we can make the most of the session time. But no doubt about, the race will be the most beneficial time for us and we will race hard to make use of that for sure. I am very much looking forward to it.”
 
SATO’S SEASON TO DATE
Sato has run competitively in most races to date this season although his 13th place rank in series standings with a total of 216 points does not reflect that performance.  He is only 21 points from a top-10 rank (10th: G. Rahal, 237 pts) and 52 from fifth place Hinchcliffe who has 268.  He led three races to date and ran as high as second, fourth and sixth in five others.  His top finish to date this season is a career-best finish of second in Edmonton.   
 
MID-OHIO DOUBLE-HEADER FOR RAHAL LETTERMAN LANIGAN RACING

15TH INDYCAR RACE AT MID-OHIO FOR RLL RACING
The Honda Indy 200 will mark the 15th Indy car event for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing (RLL) here and first since 2008 when Ryan Hunter-Reay started 15th and finished 10th for the team. The team also competed in the Atlantic Series race here in 2003 with Danica Patrick, has competed in ALMS races here in 2007 and from 2009-2011 and one SCCA event in 2008 as part of the ALMS weekend.  The highest IndyCar finish for the team here is two third place finishes (Rahal 1997, 1998) and the highest start is pole (Herta 1997).  Another front row start came in 1999 (Herta; 2nd).  Prior to the 2012 event, the team prepared a total of 23 Indy car entries for drivers Bobby Rahal (1992-98), Mike Groff (1994), Raul Boesel (1995), Bryan Herta (1996-99), Max Papis (1999-2001), Jimmy Vasser (2002), Michel Jourdain Jr. (2002-03) and Ryan Hunter-Reay (2007-2008).

BOBBY RAHAL ON 50 YEARS AT MID-OHIO
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course has been a part of Bobby Rahal’s life since he was a child.  He was inspired by his experiences at the track and went on to compete in races there, including 16 Indy car events from 1983-1998.  Nine of those races were as a driver and the following seven were as a team owner/driver.  He won two Indy car races (1985 from pole, 1986), two poles (1983, 1985), made three front row starts (2nd in 1987), finished on the podium in eight of his 16 races for a 50 percent average, and earned 9 top-fives and 11 top-10 finishes.

Before being relocated to an Indianapolis suburb this season, the Indy car operation was based in Hilliard, Ohio, 50 miles from the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.  The championship-winning ALMS program – BMW Team RLL – is still based there.  Bobby shared a few memories of his time at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in advance of Saturday’s Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge ALMS race and Sunday’s Honda Indy 200 IZOD IndyCar Series event.

BOBBY RAHAL ON THE THOUGHTS THAT COME TO MIND ABOUT MID-OHIO SPORTS CAR COURSE
“When I was driving into Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course today, I was thinking that it was the 50th year I have been coming here. My father was here for the first ever race in 1962 and I came as a little kid. I don’t know if I have been to Mid-Ohio every year since then but it has to be pretty close.  Personally I have some big wins here. Brian Redman and I drove here in the 1979 Lumberman race which was a ‘You bring it, you run it’ sort of race and won it and I think I won more prize money in that than I did in most Indy car races until I won the Indy 500 in 1986.  If I look back, winning two Indy car races here in a row, the Lumberman’s 500 with Redman and then I won again later on with Jim Trueman in 1983; I have a lot of success here over the years. It’s a special place for me.
      
“In the old days, you couldn’t run here until you were 21 years old even though every where else was 18.  Having said that, when I finally did get to run at Mid-Ohio in 1974, I loved the track and was immediately successful. And then my mentor Jim Trueman bought the track in 1982, and he certainly transformed it from being just a race track to a place that was great for spectators. Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course has really been part of the fabric of my life; coming here as a kid with his father to being a professional.
      
“My experiences at Mid-Ohio, for sure, are part of what inspired me to be a professional race car driver. I would come to the track to watch Can Am races while in college because my university (DenisonUniversity) is only about 30 miles south.  And we came here a lot in part because my grandparents lived in northern Ohio so it was a place we always went to. I saw a lot of great racing at Mid-Ohio — Can-Am, USRC, Formula 5000 — you name it. It’s certainly one of the better circuits in North America.”

RAHAL ON SUCCESS AT MID-OHIO
Rahal finished on the podium six times in nine races as a driver (1983-1991) and went on to compete seven more times once he founded what is now Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing.  He sites his immediate enjoyment of the track as a key to his success here.
      
“I’m not sure what led to the success at Mid-Ohio; I just always liked the track. I should have won three (IndyCar races) in a row instead of two. In 1987 I made a mistake and tried to pass a guy I was lapping and he came down on me and flattened the tire with a few laps to go and (Roberto) Guerrero won instead and I had been well in the lead.  When I first came to Mid-Ohio in 1974 and drove my first race here, I won and have liked the track ever since then.  A very good driver in a less-than-competitive car can still make a difference here. Aside from that, physically it is by far one of the most – if not THE most — demanding tracks in Indy car racing. They say ‘horses for courses’ and I guess this is one of my courses.”

RAHAL ON WHAT WINNING AT MID-OHIO WOULD MEAN TO HIM
Although the team has 20 Indy car wins, it has yet to earn one at Mid-Ohio.  In addition, the ALMS team has finished third each of the past three years at Mid-Ohio. A win here would be his first as a team co-owner as well as his first since he won here in 1986.
      
“It would great to win at Mid-Ohio. We have certainly been competitive over the years in the races we have run here. When you have had success as a driver here, you think you could have the same success as a team.  Unfortunately it hasn’t been that way. We have been in a position to win races here; we just have to finish it off.  We qualified well here with BMW Team RLL but struggled during the race on occasion. It’s a tough track. In Indy car, the same thing could be said.  We have to do the whole job; not just part of it. I’m looking forward to another go at it!”

BOBBY ON TAKUMA SATO BEING A CONTENDER AT MID-OHIO
“I think Takuma can be a contender at Mid-Ohio this year. He finished well here last year and I think this is his kind of track so absolutely I think he can be a contender in the race, especially if we run a race like we did in the last race in Edmonton. I don’t think there is any doubt we can be competitive; I’m certainly optimistic. We tested last week and found some things out which gave us a good place to start for race weekend. I don’t see any reason why we can’t be competitive.”

Sato Completed Approximately 120 Trouble-Free Miles of Testing at Mid-Ohio Today Before Heavy Rain Brought an End to the Test


Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing
IZOD IndyCar Series – Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Lexington, Ohio
TESTING NOTES/QUOTES – Thursday, July 26, 2012
 

TAKUMA SATO COMPLETED APPROXIMATELY 120 TROUBLE-FREE MILES OF TESTING AT MID-OHIO SPORTS CAR COURSE BEFORE HEAVY RAIN BROUGHT AN EARLY END TO THE TEST
 

Takuma Sato, No. 15 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Dallara/Honda/Firestone:  “It was a good test day despite being cut short by the weather.  We were able to check a number of things like ratios, ride heights and the other initial things you check in the first practice session of a race weekend so it was nice to get it done this morning.  Then we started to work a little on the setup which was interesting. Actually it was quite good fun making the changes; you can feel the changes improving the car and know you are collecting very valuable data so it was a productive day.  It’s just a shame that it was cut short because there was quite a lot of things left that we wanted to get done.  The team will go back to the shop and analyze the good data from today and come back well-prepared for race weekend.
      
(On DW12 at Mid-Ohio:) “We already broke last years qualifying time so the car is quick. There is a little more downforce. There are different characteristics but we have seen this at a number of tracks.  I wanted to explore a deeper setup and usually you can’t do it on a race weekend. It’s a shame this process was interrupted by weather but there is nothing we can do about it.”
 

·         FAST FACTS: Sato completed 35 laps of testing on the 2.258-mile, 13-turn Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course before the lunch break and 18 after for a total of 53 laps.  Heavy rain at approximately 3 p.m. ET brought an end to the test… The Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio will mark Sato’s third race at the track… Prior to his third place finish in Brazil and second place in Edmonton this year, his best series finish was fourth at Mid-Ohio in 2011 after he started ninth.  He started third in 2010 but retired in 25th due to contact.  Both with KV Racing Technology… His best road/street course qualifying is pole at Edmonton in 2011 and his best finish is second in Edmonton this year… Sato led two street races this season (St. Pete & Long Beach) and at Indianapolis Motor Speedway where he nearly won with a last lap pass. Has led 58 laps to date in 2012… In 34 starts in 2010-2011, has 17 career top-10 starting spots including four top-five starts and two poles (Edmonton and Iowa 2011). He has earned eight top-10 finishes including three top-five spots (fourth at Mid-Ohio, fifth at Texas and St. Petersburg in 2011).  Led a total of 61 laps from 2010-11.
 

JAY O’CONNELL, Technical Director:  “We made good progress today to get ready for the Honda Indy 200 next week. We were able to dial in the gearing, the ride heights, the spring platform, front and rear suspension geometry and get a great, solid starting point for next week.  Our quickest lap of 67.44 was on tires that were one fuel stint old so we think the car is going to be better on long runs than it was in Barber which was what we needed to make some progress. The car is better on used tires than it was at Barber where we seemed to have tire degradation on long runs whereas here at this track, we seemed to be turning our best laps on used tires which should help us prepare for Mid-Ohio to reduce tire degradation.
      
(On Push to Pass at Mid-Ohio:)  “We don’t know how much Push to Pass we are going to have at Mid-Ohio yet but they happened to carry it over from Edmonton so we could try it today so we tried it just to see the effect it had on gearing but we have no idea how much we are going to get.  Mid-Ohio has typically been a really tough track to pass on because you have limited opportunities and it’s just tough to get close to other cars so the Push to Pass should help the situation but, if you were to compare this track with last week, Edmonton probably allows for more passing. In general, Push to Pass is always going to help although too bad the car is front also has it to defend.  In Formula One, they have a drag reduction system where the car in front cannot do anything; only the car behind. That way the car behind always has a chance. If that was done here it would add excitement because the guy behind always has the chance to pass the guy in front.”

NEXT UP:  The team will return to Indianapolis to continue to prepare for the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, August 3-5.  The team’s highest result is third in 1997 and 1998 by team co-owner Rahal… Sato will make his third start at the track. Prior to his third place finish in Brazil this year, his best series finish was fourth at Mid-Ohio in 2011 after he started ninth.  He started third in 2010 but retired in 25th due to contact.  Both with KV Racing Technology…. Bobby Rahal won two races (1985, 1986), two poles (1983, 1985) and finished on the podium at Mid-Ohio eight times — or 50 percent of his 16 races.
