Dale Coyne with Vasser Sullivan Racing’s Santino Ferrucci in the No.18 SealMaster Honda says he is happy with the direction of the development the team are taking with their road car package as the NTT IndyCar Series heads to Road America for this weekend’s doubleheader REV Group Grand Prix. FZerrucci goes into race one this weekend off the back of ninth place finish last weekend in the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis.
Speaking ahead of the races this weekend Ferrucci said:
“I’m looking forward to the doubleheader at Road America this weekend. INDYCAR and the track will be allowing some fans to attend for the first this season so that is exciting. I’m very happy with the way the Coyne Vasser Sullivan team has developed the SealMaster Honda road course car. The work we’ve done on the simulator is paying off. Our pace is definitely there and we are coming off a top-10 finish at the GMR GP. We’ll be back in the SealMaster colors this weekend and If we can have zero mistakes I think we can fight for a top-five finish and possibly a win for all our sponsors.”
Alex Palou in the No.55 Dale Coyne with Team Goh Honda is looking forward to the Road America doubleheader REV Group Grand Prix having spent time preparing for the event in the simulator and speaking ahead of the action this weekend the Spaniard said:
We’ve done some simulator work in preparation for Road America so that should help us heading into the weekend. It gives me a better idea of what to expect, but it’s still going to be tough because of the single practice session. Even if you’ve driven the track on the simulator, nothing beats driving on the real thing, so you still need some time to learn the track and get the car where you want it to be and that can be tough to do in just one 90-minute session. That said, I’m confident we’ll be stronger there than at Indy. From what I’ve seen by watching onboard videos and with the sim work, the track is really nice, it has a little bit of everything and I’m looking forward to not only one but two races there this weekend.”
