ANDRETTI GIVES APPROVAL TO INDY F-1 COURSE

Mario Andretti likes the new Formula One road course at the Indianapolis Speedway, even if it's going in the opposite direction.

The new 13-turn, 2.6-mile course uses part of the famed Indy oval, but the cars will be turning clockwise instead of the normal counter-clockwise route used for the Indy 500 and Brickyard 400.

"It's a circuit that keeps your attention and, believe it or not, it's got a good rhythm," said Andretti, the 1969 Indy 500 winner who will be driving in the Porsche Supercup support races in conjunction with Sunday's inaugural U.S. Grand Prix.
