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.”

Rasmus Lindh Car #76
“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.”
