There are a number of IndyCar Series teams testing at Sebring International Raceway in a couple weeks.
Among them is KV Racing Technology, which will have its first run with new recruit Sebastien Bourdais, and French-Canadian rookie Mikael Grenier. Bourdais has signed a two-year deal with KV, while Grenier has made six career Indy Lights starts for teams with limited budgets. His best finish is fifth at Barber, 2011, driving for the now-defunct O2 Racing Technology team.
Team co-owner Jimmy Vasser told me at the SEMA show in Las Vegas last night that Grenier had a seat fitting on Monday in the team’s Indianapolis shop.
“He’s a talented kid, from what he’s been able to do in his limited opportunities,” Vasser said.
Bourdais will lead the team in 2014 with his teammate likely a younger gun. Whether that young gun is a rookie – as Grenier would be – or the team’s second driver from this year, Simona de Silvestro, remains to be seen. De Silvestro’s management team is known to be exploring different options for 2014.
