The NTT IndyCar Series circus rolled into Austin last weekend for the inaugural IndyCar Classic at the Circuit Of The Americas.
The 60 lap race lived up to its name, it was a classic. There was plenty of wheel to wheel action and not only did we have a first time winner in the series with Colton Herta in the No.88 Latitude Vacation Club Honda but he became the youngest ever IndyCar race winner at just 18 years old.
The win was fantastic for the Harding Steinbrenner Racing team as it was their first NTT IndyCar Series win.
The win was made all the more special given the fact that it was only Harding Steinbrenner Racing’s second race in their partnership with Honda.
There was action throughout the field and there was plenty of activities for fans to enjoy off track with Muse playing a concert and of course there was the NTT IndyCar Series fan village.
In the race itself there were 189 on track overtakes.
Bobby Epstein and his team at the Circuit Of The Americas can be immensely proud of the event they put on but also hats off to president of Hulman and Company Mark Miles, IndyCar president Jay Frye and the entire team at IndyCar for putting the deal together to bring IndyCar to Austin.
