2013 Itaipava Sao Paulo Indy 300 presented by Nestle - Tweet-By-Tweet

Round four of the 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series (IICS) sees it fourth in a succession of road/street courses to kick-off the season before going on with the month of May festivities at IndyCar's home city and the grand-daddy of all left-turn only (do we need to say it - oval) races, the Indy 500.
