STATEMENT FROM INDYCAR

INDYCAR has explored several possibilities in an attempt to find a replacement event following the cancellation of the March 8 race in Bras?lia. Due to the lack of time for suitable planning and the limited number of options, the series has concluded it is not feasible to organize a replacement race on that weekend. INDYCAR will determine other opportunities for its teams and drivers at that time following a review of the current testing schedule.
