The 2019 IndyCar Series doesn’t begin until March 10, but preparations are already underway for several teams that are taking part in off-season testing.
Monday, Andretti Autosport’s Alexander Rossi and AJ Foyt Racing’s Tony Kanaan took to Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, to get a feel for the place, which will be on the IndyCar schedule for the first time ever on March 24, 2019.
A full all-team IndyCar test is slated for COTA in February 12-13.
Here’s some video from Monday’s test at COTA, including interviews with Rossi and Kanaan, courtesy of IndyCar.
Also on Monday, Chip Ganassi Racing tested at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama.
Other teams are also expected to begin off-season testing in the coming weeks.
