Hinchcliffe wins IndyCar’s Sao Paulo 300

SAO PAULO — James Hinchcliffe overtook Takuma Sato of Japan on the last turn to win IndyCar’s Sao Paulo 300 for his second career victory Sunday.

The Canadian moved from third to second with three laps to go and, after the long back straight, moved inside Sato to take the lead just a few yards from the finish line at the Anhembi street track. American Marco Andretti was third.

Sato, coming off his first career victory two weeks ago in Long Beach, drove in too hard for the final turn and gave space for Hinchcliffe.

Sato had successfully defended the lead from Hinchcliffe on two other occasions in the final laps but couldn’t hang on at the end.
