Scott McLaughlin pilots an IndyCar
Scott McLaughlin has completed his debut outing in an IndyCar at the Sebring International Speedway, as part of a rookie evaluation test.
He posted a video to the Team Penske Twitter page over lunch, saying “IndyCar is just unbelievable.
“Huge G-forces, big braking, big aero grip and balance. I haven’t stalled coming out of the pits yet – I’ll probably stall now after lunch!
“I’ve got the suit on, the whole deal. It’s a dream come true.”
Speedcafe reports that the Supercars champion was watched on by Penske’s regular drivers Josef Newgarden, Simon Pagenaud, and Will Power.
The 2020 IndyCar season kicks off at St Petersburg on March 15, while McLaughlin’s Supercars title defence starts in Adelaide on February 20-23.
