Seat time is Tristan Vautier's goal as the IZOD IndyCar Series rookie competes in the F1600 Formula F Championship Series at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on July 27-28.
The 23-year-old Frenchman, who will drive the No. 55 Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda in the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio on Aug. 4, will gain additional experience on the road course in a Quantum Racing Services Van Diemen Honda. He'll also participate July 31 in an IZOD IndyCar Series Open Test at the venue.
"Not knowing the track, it's a great chance for me to get to learn it before our IndyCar weekend and I can't thank Quantum Racing Services enough for this opportunity," said Vautier, the 2012 Firestone Indy Lights champion and 2011 Pro Mazda champion. "It's going to be exciting to drive a car with no wings again, I'm sure I will have a lot of fun, and knowing the car will be prepared by a team who knows success in the series is amazing."
