Fernando Alonso ...

... to race Indy 500. Fernando Alonso will race in the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 next month.

The two-time Formula One World Champion will miss the Monaco GP and will race for McLaren-Honda at the Brickyard on May 28. It will be McLaren’s first Indianapolis 500 in 38 years and the first of Alonso’s career.

The car will be entered by the Andretti Autosport team. A replacement for Alonso at Monaco has yet to be named. ( Fox Sports) :D

Are you sure this wasn't released on April 1. Having Alonso and McLaren at the 500 would be great though. Their effort in F1 this year is not having them in the running, so a Diversion like the 500 I guess would be doable. No F1 championship is at stake by not having Alonso race at Monaco.

This is real news. I looked at 4 different sites, including McLaren's site and F1.com.
I was there for 100, but probably will miss 101. Should be an awesome show though!
