“And the circuits we’ve chosen work out rather well, they’re the right trio. COTA I do know, no person has pushed at Chicago – driving one among these round a avenue course sounds nuts – so it’s the identical for all of us. At Indy, it’s totally different to the monitor I’m used to, however has a number of the similar corners.”
