Dixon loses championship lead

7:32 am on 13 July 2009

The Auckland motor racing driver Scott Dixon has finished 4th in the latest round of the Indycar series in Toronto and in doing so has lost his championship lead.

Dixon's Chip Gannasi team-mate Dario Franchitti of Scotland won the race to take a 2 point lead in the standings.

Dixon still has reason to smile after the arrival of his first child this week.

The 11th of 17 rounds is in Edmonton in a fortnight.
