King Returns For Toronto With Ed Carpenter Racing
Jordan King returns to the cock-pit of the No.20 Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet for this weekend’s Honda Indy Toronto, round 12 of the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season. Speaking ahead of the race this weekend the Englishman commented by saying:
“I haven’t been to Canada in a very long time so I am actually quite looking forward to going to Toronto. I’ve got some good support from my family coming over so that will be nice! I’ve been on the simulator but it’s really difficult to say what the track will be like until I get in the car. It seems quite tight and twisty and seems very bumpy, but I’ve also been told it’s been resurfaced in a couple of areas. Learning the circuit as a whole might be a bit easier just because it’s a short one, but it seems to be a very niche track. It will be quite tough to learn all of the small characteristics, where the bumps are, how much curb you can use, how close you can get to the walls. It will be an interesting challenge!
Spencer Pigot in the No.21 Preferred Freezer Services Chevrolet heads to Toronto aiming to build on his strong showing in Iowa last weekend where he scored his first ever Verizon IndyCar Series podium after finishing the race in second place behind race winner James Hinchcliffe of Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s race Pigot commented by saying:
Toronto is always a great event! I really enjoy both the city and the track. It’s one of the most challenging street courses that we go to. It’s very unique in the amount of surface changes we encounter during a lap. In some cases, you drive over three different surfaces in one corner so it’s difficult to find a setup that is compliant around the entire circuit. I’m also excited to be back in the blue Preferred Freezer Services car this weekend! Ed Carpenter Racing and I have both had success at Toronto in the past so we are all really looking forward to this event.
