TIL that the IndyCar came to Britain in 1978 (the year before CART split off) and did two rounds at Silverstone and Brands Hatch, giving the Brands Hatch Indy layout its name. In those days, the USAC calendar was almost exclusively ovals and apparently the turbo lag was so bad that they were on the trottle half way through Woodcote and just had to hope they were pointing in a straight line when the turbo kicked in! They did beat James Hunt's 1977 pole time by about 2 seconds though.



I also found this incredible footage from the old Riverside Raceway in 1982 where Dick Simon goes end-over-end after a blowout then walks away from what's left of his car!

Someone's compiling all the race series videos off youtube and linking them all from a single website. "Like Netflix but for gearheads".
