“I’m really looking forward to getting back to one of my favorite tracks in North America as we head to Mid-Ohio for the second to last round of the Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires Championship. This season has been very tough and I’ve learned a lot. I hope we are able to turn our luck around this weekend.”

The Kuala Lumpur native put down a fastest lap of 01:20:7785 over 60 laps on the 2.258-mile circuit for today’s test day

“Today’s promoter test day was good; we had today to really work out the kinks in the car and a lot to improve on, a lot to develop. We still have a lot of work to do, and hopefully we’ll be better for tomorrow’s practice and qualifying. We’re still finding some time to gain and problems to fix, but we’ll get there.”

The Canadian racer recorded 54 laps over three test sessions today at the Lexington, OH permanent road course with a best time of 01:21:0810

“The day started off well – the first session this morning the car was great, and I was really able to challenge and attack the corners. As things heated up, as the day went on, we struggled a little bit and just lost a bit of time when previously we were quite quick. Tonight we’ll look at what caused us to lose that time from this morning, and we’ll be able to figure out to make those changes for tomorrow so we can challenge and attack up front.”
