The two-pronged approach will include Power in the #8 Aussie Vineyards – Team Australia car, and Servia in the #5 car – usually a silver, blue and orange car. However, for the Gold Coast race, the Spaniard will join Power in flying the colours of the home team.
The Nikon Indy 300 will be the 19th and final race of the 2008 IndyCar Series and will be held on the streets of Surfers Paradise, Australia. It is considered to be Australia's largest motorsport party both on and off the track.
It will be the first time the race is held for the Indy Racing League after 17 years as a Champ Car race. The race will not count towards the 2008 Indycar season points, as the race date is held after Chicagoland Speedway, which was preset as the season finale prior to the merger of Champ Car and IRL.
The cars of KV Racing Technology were unveiled in the pit lane of the Nikon Indy 300 circuit earlier in the week, with Power on hand to unveil the two thoroughbred IndyCar racing machines of the Indianapolis-based team.
Power and Servia are looking forward to the huge crowds cheering them on in Power’s native land, against an unusually strong field of contenders this year.
