We’re less than a week away from the Indianapolis 500 and the debut of the Mistic Machine at the “greatest spectacle in racing.”
Mistic is serving as the co-primary sponsor of the No. 11 car, dubbed the “Mistic Machine,” for both the 2014 and 2015 IndyCar Series seasons.
“We’re are thrilled to be part of this historical racing event and continue to root for Sebastien and his talented team as they attempt to make history during one of the most celebrated race events in the world,” said John Wiesehan Jr., CEO at Mistic.
This weekend, Bourdais will be making his 4th appearance at the Indy 500. After four IndyCar Series starts this season in the Mistic Machine, Bourdais has finished in 4th, 13th, 14th and 15th place.
During last weekend’s Indy qualifying, the Mistic Machine’s driver, Sebastien Bourdais, qualified for the 17th position and will start the May 25th race from Row 6.
Even though the format this year's qualifying sessions had changed, Bourdais posted great times during both days of qualifying for the 2014 Indy 500.
After day one, he sat in 24th place with an average speed of just over 228 mph, but the former champion was determined to better his starting position.
On the second day of qualifying, Bourdais posted a four-lap average speed of 229.8, securing himself and his team the 17th starting position for the 200-lap Indy 500.
The 35-year-old Frenchman is coming off his strongest performance of the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series season. He finished 4th in the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the newly designed 14-turn road course that kicked off "the Month of May" at Indianapolis Motor Speedway earlier this month.
Good luck, Sebastien! Mistic is cheering for you.
