Dale Coyne Racing with Rick Ware Racing’s Romain Grosjean in the No.51 Nurtec ODT Honda returns to the cockpit of his IndyCar for this weekend’s Detroit doubleheader having been out of the car for nearly a month owing to the month of May and the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500.
Last time out for Grosjean at the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Speedway’s road course last month which seems like a lifetime ago, the Frenchman started the race from pole position and came home to secure his first NTT IndyCar Series podium finish. This weekend however, he comes to a track that he has never raced at before but that does not phase the former F1 driver who is looking forward to the challenge of the doubleheader weekend in Detroit.
“The Detroit Grand Prix will be a brand-new track for me, so there will be a lot to learn again. “I’ve done a few laps on my bike and it seems like a super cool, flowing circuit so I’m looking forward to discovering it aboard my #51 Nurtec ODT Honda. It will obviously be a big challenge with the bumpiness of it from what I heard from the other drivers, but I can’t wait to get on track and see for myself.”
