Sebastian Saavedra fastest in first day of Indy Lights practice at Long ...
Sebastian Saavedra turned a bumpy ride into fast time.
Saavedra, one of two drivers for Bryan Herta Autosport, was the fastest of the Firestone Indy Lights drivers in practice on Friday.
Saavedra said the track leaves little room for error.
“This kind of race track, you need to be in the limits to be able to be fast,” Saavedra said. “Very close to the walls, very close to everything to set up the car for the race.”
Saavedra will be making his second career start at Long Beach in the Indy Lights series. He added that the track seems a little bit more bumpy than he remembers from last year.
“Once you get used to it,” Saavedra said. “We made some changes and went back out again. The car is feeling great.”
