Robert Wickens continues his recovery from injuries sustained in a crash at Pocono Raceway in August.
On Friday, Wickens posted a new video of his rehab efforts on his twitter page. In the new update, Wickens is shown working on a pedal machine while connected to electrodes as part of his physical therapy.
Wickens even quipped “I’m riding a bike!” in the short video.
The IndyCar Series community continues to rally around Wickens and offer support as he continues the rehab process, and several of his fellow drivers responded and offered more messages of support.
Prior to the season-ending INDYCAR Grand Prix of Sonoma, Wickens released his first video update since the Pocono crash, thanking everyone for their concerns and kind words of encouragement.
Bobby Rahal has driven in some of the biggest races in the world, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Rolex 24 Hours and, of course, winning the Indianapolis 500 as a driver in 1986 and in 2004 as a team owner.
But winning the 12 Hours of Sebring two years in a row (1987 and 1988), Rahal feels, is right up there in terms of his greatest accomplishments as a race car driver.
As IMSA celebrates its 50th anniversary, Rahal reflected on what racing at Sebring International Raceway has meant to him:
“To me, Sebring is the ultimate endurance race. Not as long as Daytona or Le Mans, but the demands put on a car and driver at Sebring are highly unusual.
“My father raced at Sebring in the late 60’s. To win that race two years in a row really meant something to me.
“While we’ve won a lot of other races, we’ve won just about everywhere, you name it. But for me personally, winning at Sebring those two years in a row was very special.”
