At last weekend’s Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, Indycar team owner and long time racing fan, David Letterman turned Intern Todd from the Late Show loose in the paddock with a camera on his tail. Hilarity ensues.
Friend of The Garage, James Hinchcliffe had what can only be called a rough weekend in St. Pete’s, as the Andretti Autosport team battled computer problems throughout the entire race.
The race car was not the only flop in the Mayor’s weekend!

Popular Denver, Colorado racer Robb Holland finished off the 2011 Pirelli World Challenge season with a third place in the championship, but that didn’t mean he had a ride for 2012. The problem was that the Volvo C30 program being run by K-Pax racing came to an end at the close of the season.
Earlier this week, Karl Thomson of Compass360 Racing announced that Holland would be returning to the Toronto based team to drive the #70 Civic at the season opening race in Florida. The St. Petersburg race is a support event for the Indycar season opener. While the deal is currently just for the one race, it sounds like there is a possibility that there might be more news soon.
