Arrow McLaren SP endured a disappointing qualifying session for today’s Honda Indy 200 race one at the Mid-Ohio Sportscar course as Pato O’Ward in the No.5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet and Oliver Askew in the No.7 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet.
O’Ward starts the race from 15th place following a time of 01:07.0354s and speaking following the action he said:
“We just have to keep our heads down and see where we can make it better for the race. Obviously, passing is going to be quite tough, so strategy will be the key to getting a good result. The No. 5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet is starting 15th, so there’s not much we can do now in regards to starting position. We just have to make our way up to the front in the race and see where we end up.”
Oliver Askew starts the race from 16th place following a time of 01:07.6211s and speaking following the action he said:
“It’s going to be an interesting race for the Arrow McLaren SP team and for the entire field. I expect it to be hard to pass on track, so there is going to be a lot of over-cuts and under-cuts in the pits. That’s something you need to pay attention to. This track seems to be more of a handful than any other track we have gone to this year, it’s going to be quite interesting.”
