Indy Lights stars set for IndyCar test at Sonoma
Santiago Urrutia, Andre Negrao and Zach Veach will test alongside Verizon IndyCar Series stars at Sonoma Raceway on Thursday, Sept. 8.
Urrutia and Negrao, who currently lie first and seventh in the Lights championship standings driving for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, will have the chance to prove their pace alongside the team’s incumbent IndyCar drivers, James Hinchcliffe and Mikhail Aleshin.
Veach, who races for Belardi Auto Racing in Indy Lights, will test for Ed Carpenter Racing. He currently lies sixth in the standings, and will test alongside Josef Newgarden and rookie Spencer Pigot.
This follows on from the Watkins Glen test last month, which saw Andretti Autosport’s Indy Lights drivers Dean Stoneman, Shelby Blackstock and Ed Jones test AA’s “big” cars, with Ed Jones sharing Graham Rahal’s Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing entry.
The test will see 21 of the 22 regular cars hit the track, piloted by 24 drivers. RC Enerson is due to drive the #19 Dale Coyne Racing-Honda, while the only absentees will be KVSH Racing and Sebastien Bourdais.
The test will run from approximately 9am to 5pm, and is free to spectators.
