Arrow McLaren head into this weekend’s Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix, the first on the streets of Detroit since 1991 looking for a solid race.

Speaking ahead of the race this weekend, Arrow McLaren Racing Director Gavin Ward said:

New circuits always make for interesting weekends. We’ve done as much homework as we can to roll out with good cars from the start here, but with the many unknowns, we’ll adapt to what we learn in practice and try to give Chevrolet a big win in their home race and keep building up points towards the championship.”

Pato O’Ward in the No.5 Arrow McLaren Chevrolet is looking forward to the race this weekend saying:

This is our first time going to downtown Detroit. It’s a new track for all of us; everybody starts from zero. I’ve always enjoyed going to Detroit because I get to see a lot of the Latino community there. I’m certainly going to miss Belle Isle, but I’m sure the event this weekend will be awesome, so I’m looking forward to it. There are 11 races to go to chase this championship.”

Felix Rosenqvist in the No.6 onsemi Arrow McLaren Chevrolet is excited about the race saying:

It’s awesome to go to downtown Detroit. I’ve been looking forward to hitting the streets all year. I think it will be a bumpy and challenging track in pure Detroit fashion. It’s also a new challenge as no one has raced here before, but that’s exciting for us. We will try to roll out of the truck as good as we can.”

Alexander Rossi in the No.7 NTT DATA Arrow McLaren Chevrolet is looking forward to Detroit this weekend saying:

”I’m looking forward to getting right back on track in Detroit this weekend. I know the amount of effort from the series and promotor that has gone into making this race a reality, and I cannot wait to get started. It is a completely new track for all of us, so everyone will start with a blank slate. I know the team is hungry to continue the success from the month of May.”
