Justin Wilson Set For Inaugural Grand Prix Of Indianapolis

The Verizon IndyCar Series will make its race debut on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course with Saturday’s Grand Prix of Indianapolis. While it is the first time for IndyCar to stage a race on the clockwise-running circuit, for Wilson it marks a return to a track that he has experience on, having raced to an eighth place finish on a different version of the track in his Formula 1 days with Jaguar Racing in 2003.

Saturday’s race marks Wilson’s 100th race start in Verizon IndyCar Series action, having taken 54 green flags in ChampCar competition after making his transition to North American open wheel racing.

Following Friday’s mixed-conditions qualifying session, Wilson will be eager to move forward in Saturday’s race at the historic facility. After posting top-10 speeds in the opening practice sessions, Wilson will start the inaugural event from the ninth row and looks to make his way forward on the 2.434-mile circuit.

“The car felt pretty good although there was a bit of an issue with the brakes,” said Wilson. “A different wheel every brake zone would lock up, so it was constantly changing every lap. It was difficult to keep up with what was happening and I couldn’t quite push the brake zones all the way to the limit. But we will just keep working and see what happens tomorrow.”

While the starting position is not what the affable Briton had been looking for, Wilson acknowledged that the foundation is solid and the team has the chance to make some forward progress once again as the squad has showed so far this year.

“The balance of the car was good, so I’m disappointed to get knocked out,” said Wilson. “But obviously we just need to do an even better job. The car felt nice, so I am not sure how much we gave up with the braking issue. It is going to make for an interesting race. I’m going to be coming up from the back and aiming to be up front.”

The Grand Prix of Indianapolis will begin Saturday afternoon at 3:50 PM (ET) with live coverage on ABC starting at 3:30 PM ET.
