“It’s great to get the 2023 season started, and see all the men and women back in the INDYCAR paddock. This test at
The Thermal Club was great. It’s an amazing facility, and served to highlight the premier North American open-wheel racing series. We came here with a lot of energy [following Acura’s win at last weekend’s Rolex 24]. You can see that our teams worked hard in the off-season, as did we. ‘Winning practice’ in itself doesn’t mean much, but it does show that we have some fast cars and fast drivers ready for the season to begin next month in St. Petersburg.”
