The weekend was beset with problems due to the track 'weeping'. However on the Sunday the cars finally hit the track.

The cars lining up on the pit lane prior to first practice (bet you can't get photos like this at a Grand Prix)

 

The PENSKE team practice a pit stop.

The Visteon Patrick Racing spare car in the paddock as the team work on Townsend Bells car in the garage.

Mauricio Gugelmin heads down the pit lane, Bruno Junqueria at speed and Jimmy Vasser returning to the pits during practice.

Team Kool Green line up Dario Franchitti and Visteon Patrick Racing line up Roberto Moreno in the pit lane prior to the start of the race.

The cars head round for the green flag.......

....which lasts a few seconds before Max Papis heads backwards down the main straight and Bruno Junquiera is in the wall (spot the photographer who is missing what's under his nose)

Paul Tracy takes his Team Kool Green car to his pit area as Shell Team Rahal service Kenny Brack. While further down the pitlane Players Forsythe Racing Team service Patrick Carpentier and Miller Team Rahal service a lucky Max Papis.

Gil De Ferran heads for the chequered flag in front of Kenny Brack.
