We’ve mentioned the fan events in the run up to next week’s United States Grand Prix in Austin, and we have driver confirmations now for Oliver Weingarten’s COTA fan forum, too.

Williams’ Felipe Massa, Force India’s Sergio Perez and Sauber’s Esteban Gutierrez. Perez and Gutierrez were in attendance at the former FOTA fan forum at the same event in Austin last season; the U.S. race, for 2014 anyway, serves as the closest Grand Prix to a home event for the pair of Mexican drivers.

More information and a chance to register for the event is linked here.

Final IndyCar practice at Pocono cancelled due to rain

LONG POND, Pa – A rain storm that hit Pocono Raceway after qualifying for Sunday’s ABC Supply 500 forced the cancellation of final practice.

Originally scheduled for 4:45 p.m. ET, the session never got underway as rains hit Pocono not long before practice was slated to begin.

Rain grew heavier before finally stopping at around 5:00 p.m., but it ultimately dropped too much moisture for the track to be dried in time for final practice to be held.

No changes to Sunday’s schedule have been made, meaning there will be no morning warm-up to replace the cancelled session.

Coverage of Sunday’s race begins at 1:30 p.m. ET, with the green flag set to fly shortly after 2:00 p.m. ET.
