KVSH Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais in the No.11 Team Hydroxycut Chevrolet started Sunday’s race the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio sports car course from 16th place and made a fantastic start and was the Frenchman had hoped that he could finish the race in the top four but unfortunately for the LeMans native as he retired from the race after colliding with the No.14 ABC Supply Co AJ Foyt Racing Honda of Takuma Sato.
Speaking following the race Bourdais commented by saying:
After a frustrating qualifying yesterday, we managed to find ourselves up front today after a good strategy call. Unfortunately, five laps to the end I felt I had a shot to get into the top four. I haven’t seen the replay, but I guess I just got frustrated and missed my mark on the braking when I was close behind him (Takuma Sato). He braked and I tried to brake later and unfortunately I touched him. My bad to Takuma (Sato). The Hydroxycut car was good and I was growing increasingly frustrated not to be able to make use of it because he was not very fast. It just tipped me over the edge and I made a mistake. I feel bad for the Hydroxycut guys. They did a good job in the pits and deserved a better result. We’ll just have to regroup now and see what we can do the last four races of the season.
