RLL Gained Valuable Experience at Today's Road Course Test at IMS


GRAHAM RAHAL, No. 15 National Guard Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “This is one of the best road courses we go to. I had a blast out there. The last section – Turns 7, 8, 9 and 10 are a hoot. The speed on the straight is up over 190 mph and it’s the fastest place we go already and we didn’t expect that at all. When we pulled out to do our install lap I came in and told them I thought we were out of gear already so that’s why we didn’t run the first hour and 20 minutes. I think the race will be really good; there will be a lot of passing. We (drivers) all gave our input. I told them what I thought and Kanaan clearly had a lot of voice in this as did Briscoe who was here with me at the initial test and gave Derrick (Walker) some ideas of what we thought needed to be done. Pretty much what we mentioned then is what we have now. It is really fun. I hope we get a great crowd because I can tell you we will put on a good show here. The thing that makes this different is that it’s IMS. This place genuinely cares about making a good race track. The curbs are phenomenal as is the layout. Unfortunately our day ended early when we had a problem with something engine related.”

ORIOL SERVIA, No. 16 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “I think the track is a lot of fun. Its what we drivers always ask for; long straights so you can make passing spots, hard braking areas that are challenging and create overtaking possibilities and some interesting corners in the middle. They are fast and challenging so I think it will be a good race for sure. We did a lot of work today and now we need to go through all of the data to understand which things, and why they were better. I still think we got close to the front which is definitely what we wanted to do but we still have a little bit to improve but overall it was a good day.”

NEXT UP: The inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis will take place on May 8-10.
