Nigel Mansell

Round three of the 1994 Indycar season was held on the Long Beach street circuit in California and saw a glittering field of drivers, including Nigel Mansell, Mario Andretti, Emerson Fittipaldi and a young Jacques Villeneuve, battling it out for championship points leading up to the 78th Indy 500.

This video takes a look at the chaotic race and focuses on Nigel Mansell, who qualified fourth and managed to fight his way back up to second after copping a puncture when Michael Andretti punted him from behind as they struggled to avoid a slow Fittipaldi, himself nursing a transmission issue.
