When the Scot em­barked on his maiden Champ Car cam­paign with Ho­gan Rac­ing in 1997, he can’t have dared hope how much suc­cess he would have over the fol­low­ing 18 years – ig­nor­ing his ill-fated flir­ta­tion with NAS­CAR in 2008. Af­ter a ti­tle near-miss in ’99, it was in Indycar that he thrived. Four cham­pi­onships, three In­di­anapo­lis 500 tri­umphs and a to­tal of 31 wins make him not only the most suc­cess­ful Bri­ton, but one of the most suc­cess­ful of any na­tion­al­ity.
