Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires race winner Aaron Telitz was at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Friday where he took part in an open test on the road course configuration at the Brickyard.
Telitz shared the driving duties with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports James Hinchcliffe in the No.5 Arrow Electronics Honda.
Speaking following his time in the car, the American commented by saying:
It was an absolute blast out there. The car is awesome. I thought everything about it was fun. I loved the power, the big tires that have so much grip, the carbon brakes. It was all stuff I had to get used to, but I really enjoyed it. It will take a little time to digest, but my first reaction was (it was) a pile of fun.
Schmidt Peterson Motorsports team manager Taylor Kiel commented on Telitz’ run by saying:
I think Aaron did a great job. “He was up to speed quickly and understood what we were trying to do. He did everything we asked him to do. From my perspective he did everything we could ask of him and more.
Telitz was guided through his test at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway by James Hinchcliffe and chief engineer Leena Gade and speaking about Gade, Telitz commented by saying:
(Leena) doesn’t overpower you or ask too much of you,” Telitz said. “She was great to work with and easy to work with. She’s extremely smart and knows what she’s doing. We didn’t do any massive changes. It was mostly about me getting laps.
