Four four four four four: I’m starting to get the idea that Ford likes the number four. Four-d is taking four cars to Le Mans, and as such, has added four drivers to their already insane lineup: IndyCar’s Scott Dixon and Sébastien Bourdais, 2014 Le Mans winner Harry Tincknell, and Mustang racer Billy Johnson.
If anywhere could snap a driver into full Jean Girard Mode, it would have to be one of IndyCar’s tight street courses. Good news! IndyCar’s season opener is on the chaotic street course at St. Petersburg, and Sébastien Bourdais already got into it with Mikhail Aleshin after a practice session. Yes, a practice session.
We've seen the new IndyCar aerokits for this year, but how do the cars drive with all those fancy add-ons? Well, for one, they make Barber Motorsports Park look like a go-kart track when they run it in what appears to be fast-forward. Here's an onboard from this week's test. Enjoy.
Sébastien Bourdais came second in the IndyCar race in Toronto yesterday, and was accordingly given a trophy. Said trophy proceeded to completely fall apart and bounce away from his hands before shattering. It looks like they don't make trophies like they used to.
