Man who murdered his wife to co-own 2018 Indianapolis 500 entry
A man convicted of killing his wife is set to be a car owner in the 2018 Indianapolis 500.
IndyCar Series team Schmidt-Peterson Motorsports, which fields the No. 5 car currently driven by James Hinchcliffe and the No. 7 car that has been piloted by multiple drivers in 2017, said Tuesday that it was teaming with former F1 owner Didier Calmels to field a third car in the 500 for Tristan Gommendy.
Calmels, a former owner in Formula 1, shot his wife Dominique in 1989.
SPM, for its part, told the Indianapolis Star that it was “aware” of Calmels murder conviction. Better to be aware than not aware?
