Sebastien Bourdais in the No.11 Team Hydroxycut Chevrolet for the KVSH Racing Team had an extremely disappointing day at the Kohler Grand Prix at the Road America circuit in Wisconsin on Sunday.
The Frenchman who started the race from 12th place was unable to carry the momentum forward from his win the LeMans 24 Hours last weekend as he struggled with his car and came home in 18th place as a result just behind the No.14 ABC Supply Co AJ Foyt Racing Honda of Takuma Sato and just ahead of the No.19 Dale Coyne Racing Honda of Gabby Chaves.
Speaking following the race Bourdais commented by saying:
It’s a shame because the Hydroxycut machine was a good race car. Unfortunately, we got hit on the first lap and went down a lap repairing the damage. It was pretty much game over at that point. We soldiered on and gave it our best, passing when we could, but with only the one late caution there wasn’t much we could do. It’s especially frustrating because, as I have said before, I really like the Road America circuit and the atmosphere this weekend was fantastic. Fortunately, we will be racing here again. At this point, the KVSH Racing Team will just have to move on and see what we can do in Iowa.
