Round 19: Indy Grand Prix of Portland (sanctioned by CART) 198.9 miles around Portland International Raceway [1.967 miles (3.165 km) / 102 laps]

This is another classic American road course, similar to Cleveland and Mid-Ohio. Even with super soft tires, grip was limited. I wasn't the fastest on the straightaways either but managed to keep ahead, surviving a brush with Tracy which damaged his car, until an unfortunate incident with Rahal. I was back in the points when the car suffered an oil leak. Not wanting to spill oil on the racing line (which does have an effect in Grand Prix 2) I pulled to the left. Unforunately I still got hit from behind. I wouldn't have been able to make the pits anyway, but this second accident guaranteed an early retirement. 24th in the standings looks poor but at least two points were salvaged thanks to pole position and fastest lap. The championship lead is maintained with just two races left. Paul Tracy fought back to score a victory, helped by late race retirements from Danny Sullivan and Scott Goodyear. Like the real 1993 season, he is extremely quick. He is 27 points behind and both him and Mansell could still take the national championship.
