Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Robert Wickens received a wonderful reception at the Honda Indy Toronto on Sunday as he drove his fiance Carli Wood around the street circuit but also led the NTT IndyCar Series field on the parade lap ahead of the start of the race.
Wickens who finished on the podium here last year also gave the command for the drivers to start their engines.
During the race, the Canadian was the pit stand for James Hinchcliffe and Marcus Ericsson which saw the Mayor of HinchTown come from 14th to finish the race in sixth.
Speaking following the race, Wickens said:
The fans here in Toronto did not disappoint. The whole Honda Indy Toronto event has been one I’ll always remember. I never thought I’d be able to drive here this year, but with the hard work from Honda, Arrow, INDYCAR and Green Savoree, they have given me an amazing memory, and hopefully, something the fans here really enjoyed.
As Wickens drove around the track, fans waved and cheered and it was wonderful to see the amazing support that he received from the entire NTT IndyCar Series community.
