Bryan Herta Autosport Named Team of the Year by Racer Magazine

Racer magazine has selected Bryan Herta Autosport as its Team of the Year in its annual Editor’s Choice Awards.

There was one other team in contention for this – Red Bull Racing – but with the combined talents and experience of Adrian Newey and Sebastian Vettel and with a budget like Red Bull has to splash about, it could hardly fail.

By contrast, for Bryan Herta Autosport to win the 2011 Indianapolis 500 was astounding. Hiring a previous winner of Dan Wheldon’s caliber was one major part. But to have a car capable of qualifying sixth and to then employ the right race strategy when the big-name teams didn’t – that’s amazingly impressive for a part-time team of 12 staff in only its second ever IndyCar race.

No wonder Herta looked so shocked in his post-race interview on ABC TV. “We just won the Indy 500,” he stammered. “Can you believe that? I mean, we came here to win and we kept saying ‘We’re here to win’ but…we actually won!”
