The 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series season will begin in Brazil and end in Sonoma, California. The schedule for next season was released on Thursday, October 30th and features a few changes from the 2014 schedule.
The schedule, which features 17 events at 16 venues – six ovals, six road courses and four temporary street courses – will feature two new venues. The season opens at Autodromo Internacional Nelson Piquet in Brasilia, Brazil on March 8th; about a month later, on April 12th, the series makes its inaugural visit to NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale, Louisiana.
The season ends, for the first time since 2007, on a road course – Sonoma Raceway in California – on August 30th, preceded by the new date for the race at Pocono Raceway – August 23rd, switched from its July 4th weekend date of the last couple of years. Another date change: Honda Indy Toronto moves from its traditional July weekend to June 12th through 14th due to Toronto’s hosting of the Pan American Games in July.
