Rain hampering Indy practice
|Thursday, May 19th 2011, 04:47 GMT|
Practice for the Indianapolis 500 was rained off again on Wednesday, as bad weather continued to frustrate teams' efforts to prepare for this weekend's qualifying days.
So far only one of the scheduled practice days has not been affected by poor weather, with showers interrupting Saturday's running, rain forcing the abandonment of both Sunday and Wednesday, and rain and very low temperatures meaning only two cars took to the track before Tuesday's session was also called off. Nearly 18 hours of the 30 hours of running that should have been held so far have been lost to rain.
Further practice is scheduled for Thursday and Friday before qualifying commences on Saturday.
