Dale Coyne Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais heads to the IndyCar Grand Prix at The Glen this weekend aiming to build on his top ten finish last time out at the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 presented by Valvoline at Gateway Motorsports Park last weekend.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend the Frenchman commented by saying:
Watkins Glen is a track that I really enjoy and that I’ve done very well at. I was competitive last year, but I had an interesting day with a spin at the start, but I came back surging at the end. Hopefully our car will be like it was at the Indy road course and Mid-Ohio, when I tested, and places like that because I think we can definitely do pretty well. Hopefully that will be the case and we can get the No. 18 car up front. It’s a track that is very physically difficult. It’s very, very high G’s with high-speed corners, but it’s a very interesting and exhilarating challenge as well, so when you get a good lap there, it’s very satisfying. I’m looking forward to it.
Ed Jones in the No.19 Boy Scouts of America Honda is excited to get back on a road course. The Verizon IndyCar Series rookie commented by saying:
It will be nice to get back on a road course this weekend at Watkins Glen. I think it’s a track that should be good for us. It’s among one of my favorites in the United States. I did well there last year in Indy Lights. That said, it will be much different in an Indy car, it will be difficult with all the high-speed corners. Hopefully we can have a good result there before going to Sonoma and have a good end to the season.
