Harding Steinbrenner Racing’s Colton Herta in the No.88 Honda said that the Circuit of the Americas just suits his driving style as he ended the NTT IndyCar Series Spring Training camp in second place with a time of 01:47.0001s.
Herta led the way in the previous three sessions over the course of the two test. Speaking following the test he said:
This track just suits my driving style a lot. “The team has been working really hard to get the car where it needs to be. Obviously, they’ve made really big gains in the winter time compared to last year, and we’re kind of seeing that. Really stout job by the boys.
Herta went on to say:
Another good day of testing at COTA. We were quickest this morning and P2 by a tenth (of a second) this afternoon. And there’s still more to find. We are still working on getting the balance as it gets colder. When it was warmer, we were really good, so I think we’ll be fine for the race as it should be warmer. Overall the team had a great test. I’m really happy with how everyone is working so hard and putting in so much effort to get everything done. I can’t wait for next month when this No. 88 Honda-powered car hits the Streets of St. Pete.”
