I love IndyCars I used to sponsor the team of former Formula 1 Ferrari driver Stefan Johansson with drivers Jimmy Vasser and Ryan Hunter-Reay who is currently winning a lot of races and I was there for his first win ever in an IndyCar in Queensland, Australia. The are all super nice people with a lot of talent and a lot of fun.

I have followed Sarah Fisher the Commercial Point, Ohio native who first came into the public eye at 19 when she became the youngest woman to qualify for the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing” – the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race. So yes to fly to meet her in my hometown at the Honda Indy with another Sarah Fisher, singer, songwriter, and actress from the television show Degrassi, what a bonus that is, two women who rock.

David Bowie when he starts talking to you about travel, Japan, China, music , books, or films has a steely focus. Sarah also has these attributes of Bowie and her steely focus, quickly paid dividends. Fisher became the first woman to win a pole position for a major open-wheel race when she qualified fastest for the 2002 Belterra Casino Indy 300 at Kentucky Speedway. Her lightning-quick lap of 221.390 mph remains the fastest lap on record at that track.

Sarah Fisher Racing in 2008. The team scored its first victory in October 2011 with driver Ed Carpenter, and Sarah became the first female team owner to win a race in the IZOD IndyCar Series.

2011 was a year of milestones off-track for Fisher as well. With her husband Andy by her side, she gave birth to daughter Zoey on September 13, 2011. Zoey was not quite three-weeks-old when her mom’s team won its first race and was in victory lane to celebrate.

In 2012 Fisher’s race team, Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing, is competing in the IZOD IndyCar Series with rookie driver Josef Newgarden.

So here we go to Honda Indy Toronto upon landing to visit with Sarah Fisher the women who rocks IndyCar. IMG_0038

A Day with Mirna at Honda Indy Toronto where Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

I took a walk down pit lane with Mirna at Honda Indy where as they would say in a Bollywood film ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’.

This really was a walk running into friends.

First up with Mirna meeting my friend with whom I have had so much fun the Swedish racing driver Stefan Johansson. Stefan was in great spirit and Mirna commented to him that he looked like all the Swedish boys, blue eyes with blond hair.

KV Racing’s and the suite of “E.J.” Viso where Jimmy Vasser came to say hello. Jimmy Vasser drove for American Spirit when I was sponsoring the race team and is just a great guy to hang with. Jimmy is the co- owner of KV Racing.

It was great walk over to KV Racing garage where Rubens Barrichello was happy to welcome her over to the garage.

Action was everywhere, scooters buzzing past, car’s going to the garages’s and a chance to catch up and meet old friends introducing them to new friends.

Izod Indy Series or Honda Indy in Toronto is really a wonderful place to come and get a great look at racing up close and personal as Mirna did. Today will be race day and this will be super special for her and Honda Indy.
