NO. 11 TEAM EUROPA – KVSH RACING CHEVROLET/DALLARA/FIRESTONE
Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama – April 22-24, 2016
KVSH Racing driver Sebastien Bourdais is coming off a solid ninth place finish last weekend in the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, Round 3 of the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series season. The top-10 finish is his second in the first three races this year. Bourdais currently sits 14th in the championship standings with 55 points, but is just seven points out of eighth place.
Sebastien Bourdais quote:
“I am looking forward to racing at Barber Motorsports Park this weekend. The KVSH Racing team had a good test at Barber a few weeks ago and we have had a strong car there the last couple of years. We just haven’t achieved the results we should have. I think we will come off the transporter with a good baseline setup and can make the right adjustments based on the weather and track conditions. The biggest thing we need to focus on this weekend is to qualify well. If we can do that…if we can start at the front this race, we can have a good result.”
