Media Note: Justin Wilson Comments from IMS Test

30 April 2014-Indianapolis, IN- Justin Wilson took to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Wednesday as the series staged an official test of the newly updated infield road course. The track will host the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis May 11 for round 4 of the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Champioship. The test marked the first time for Wilson to make clockwise laps at the facility since his 2003 Formula 1 appearance when he finished 8th for Jaguar Grand Prix.

“It’s a challenging track, trying to get the power down and get the entries just right. But I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s going to be really good to race on.”

(Compared to the previous IMS road course)

“I think this new track is going to be a lot better. The corners leading into the back straight give you a lot of options and so does the corner leading into the front straight, so you can definitely try and set something up and the straights are long enough that you can definitely make something happen.”

(Did you have a sense of deja vu when taking to the track for the first time?)

“It feels like a completely different track from the last time I did the road course here because we didn’t go through turn-1. Turn-1 is a lot tighter than what I remember from ten years ago so it feels very different.”
