Sunday warm-up: Penske in front again...

Helio Castroneves and Gil de Ferran led the way in Sunday morning's warm-up for this afternoon's round of the CART FedEx World Series

Sunday warm-up: Penske in front again...

The Brazilian pair, who will start from the front row, have set the pace at the spectacular road course all weekend.

The Honda-powered duo's closest challenger was the Toyota of Juan Montoya, but the Colombian was 0.770s slower, a huge amount in CART terms. The next 13 cars were covered by the same amount.

The warm-up took place under cloudy skies, but the sun is expected to burn through in time for the race which starts at 2000BST
