The INDY NXT by Firestone Grand Prix at Road America also proved to be a challenging encounter for JHR’s drivers earlier today, with Matteo Nannini finishing P16 and team-mate Rasmus being classified two places further back.
Both drivers were eager to put Saturday’s qualifying troubles behind them as the 20-lap race got underway. But it proved to be a tall order.
Round three winner Matteo ran in P11 during the opening stages but dropped back as the race progressed. Meanwhile, a tire lock-up damaged the rubber on Rasmus’ car and prevented the Swede from finishing the race.
“WE STRUGGLED A LITTLE BIT MORE IN THE RACE, BUT WE CAN TAKE THE POSITIVES.”
Matteo Nannini said:
“Now that we have finished at Road America, it was not a result deserving of our speed as we have been fast all weekend. We struggled a little bit more in the race, but we can take the positives. We were competitive, especially in the qualifying runs.”
“WE LOOKED GOOD IN PRACTICE ON FRIDAY, WE JUST STRUGGLED WITH A WIRING ISSUE IN PRACTICE TWO AND QUALIFYING.”
Rasmus Lindh said:
“It has been a hard weekend for us. We looked good in practice on Friday, we just struggled with a wiring issue in practice two and qualifying. Luckily, we fixed it for today, but it was difficult for me to get up to speed. I want to thank Juncos Hollinger Racing and AER for getting that wiring issue figured out.”
