Belardi Barber Test 2018

Leeds, Ala. – Belardi Auto Racing completed a successful test at Barber Motorsports Park last week, with both of the team’s championship-contending drivers gaining valuable knowledge ahead of next month’s Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires Rounds 3 and 4.

Aaron Telitz was able to finally jump back into his Belardi-red No. 9, after competing in Round 2 at St. Pete in a blue race car from Carlin. Aaron was able to really dial in his new car's setup on the challenging 2.38-mile road course.

"It felt so good to be back in my red Belardi Auto Racing car at Barber Motorsports Park. We had a great morning getting the new car broke in and running well and then went right through our test items in the afternoon. Everything feels great and I'm sure we'll be right back at the front when we come back here in three weeks to race."

Santiago Urrutia had much more of an exploratory day of testing, trying out of the box set ups to find the right one for Rounds 3 and 4 of the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tire championship. Current points leader Urrutia thinks he and teammate Telitz really have their cars dialed in for Rounds 3 & 4, and will be looking to strike on the momentum gained from St. Pete.

“Overall it was a great day, we worked on a lot of different set ups and we have a good car. Barber has always been good for me, it's where I won my first Indy Lights race. We need to keep working and getting points. If we keep working and doing things the way we are right now, things will continue to fall in place. The team is doing a great job, it felt like every time we put the car on track that we were fast. Now we are looking forward to the race, I have a few weeks to prepare myself and get back in the car ready to win again!”

Racing at Barber Motorsports Park will take place on April 20th through the 22nd. Make sure to catch all of the action and behind the scenes on all of the Belardi Auto Racing social media channels, and on the Road to Indy TV app or on
