KVSH Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais in the No.11 Team Hydroxycut Chevrolet started the Honda Indy Toronto from fifth place on the grid and ended the event in seventh place just ahead of pole sitter Scott Dixon in the No.9 Target Chevrolet and just behind the No.7 SMP Racing Honda of Mikhail Aleshin.
Speaking following the race the Frenchman commented by saying:
Obviously it was not the result the Hydroxycut – KVSH Racing Team was looking for today. I think the car was better than that, it was hooked up, but we seem to degrade the red tires too much. On blacks we seem to be strong. The real problem was that yellow for “track repair.” It was a killer because I was managing the red tires at that point, which were falling off really bad, and once the yellow came out I had to make the restart on those and it was game over. I am disappointed about the result, but in the group of guys that were with us, we are not the ones who came out the worst. It is not where we want to finish, but we did the best with what we had.
