Juncos Hollinger Racing’s Callum Ilott in the No.77 Chevrolet is hoping that the team can hit the ground running this weekend for the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park.
Ilott goes into the race this weekend aiming to bounce back from a tough race in Long Beach which saw him retire from the event following contact and looking ahead to Barber, the Englishman said:
After testing the oval at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last week, we are looking forward to our first road course race of the season at Barber. Luckily I got the chance to test at Barber and iron out any little issues we may have had so hopefully we can hit the ground running at Barber. It’s a fun track. It will be difficult to overtake in the race, but hopefully we can get a better qualifying run and move up a few places. Otherwise the weather looks a bit questionable so that could make it a bit interesting, but we will have to see. It would be nice to see what this car is like in the wet.”
