Quote: Luca Filippi
“I can’t wait to get on track in Baltimore. It’s a spectacular street circuit that looks very tricky and challenging, but I have experience on street circuits and I’ve always loved them. So I’m very excited to get there and see what we can do.

“After racing in Mid-Ohio with the Barracuda team, I’m very motivated. I felt we were fast and competitive, so this will be a chance to continue at that pace. The Barracuda Racing team is great to work with and I want to thank Bryan Herta, Barracuda Networks and Bowers & Wilkins for this opportunity. It’s been my dream to come over here to IndyCar, so I’ll do my best and hopefully we’ll have a great weekend.”
