How an Indy 500 'nearly man' found a home in Japan

By:

Having come within three laps of winning the Indianapolis 500, having already had the door to Formula 1 slammed in his face, Bertrand Baguette finally found a stable home in Japan with Honda. Ahead of his eighth season as a SUPER GT driver, he looks back on his career so far with Jamie Klein.

Almost any racing driver over the age of 30 or so would probably say that they have at least a couple of regrets in their career, but if there’s anyone that would be justified in having them, it would be Honda SUPER GT racer Bertrand Baguette.  

It’s been seven years since Baguette started racing in Japan, so European and American fans who are unfamiliar with SUPER GT would be forgiven for wondering what on earth happened to him after a four-year stretch around a decade ago that saw him win the Formula Renault 3.5 title, the Le Mans 24 Hours in the LMP2 class and – very nearly – the Indianapolis 500.
