Carlin Racing’s Max Chilton in the No.59 Gallagher Chevrolet says he is looking forward to Saturday’s NTT IndyCar Series iRacing Challenge Firestone 175 at Twin Ring Motegi.
Speaking ahead of the event the Englishman commented saying:
I’m looking forward to racing the No. 59 Gallagher Carlin Chevrolet this weekend at Twin Ring Motegi in the INDYCAR iRacing Challenge. Last weekend’s race at Michigan International Speedway was my first iRacing event ever, and even though we didn’t have the best race and it’s taken some time to get used to iRacing, I’ve been having a great time. Our engineers are having a lot of fun getting involved, and Felipe (Nasr) and I have both been working hard preparing for these race weekends on the sims. The oval at Twin Ring Motegi should make for some great racing for the fans this weekend, so hopefully we can stay away from any trouble on the start and come away with a solid result.
Felipe Nasr is back in the No.31 Carlin Chevrolet is looking forward to the race on Saturday saying:
I had a great first experience on an oval last weekend at Michigan, and I’m so glad we’re going back to an oval for this weekend’s event at Twin Ring Motegi. We qualified really well, and the No. 31 Carlin Chevrolet ran with the leaders most of the race, so I know we have the ability to finish up front on an oval. If it wasn’t for my mistake late in the race in pit lane, I really think we could’ve come away with a podium last weekend, which makes me even more excited about the possibility of running up front again this weekend at Motegi. The Carlin team is taking the iRacing INDYCAR Challenge very seriously, and we’re all working together to get the Carlin cars up front. Hopefully we can come away with some good results for the 31 and the 59 this weekend.
