Canapino completed 54 laps during yesterday’s session and clocked a time of 40.608s at an average speed of 221.628 mph, results that left him in 34th place.. However, behind the performance of the Reef player, there is part of a strategy that the team carried out for the weekend’s classification for the Indianapolis 500.

As the category announced in its statistical data, the “” was one of the fastest when turning without suction and with clean air, a fundamental issue since the classification for the Indy500 is based on average speed. The former TC and TC2000 champion lapped at 219.525mph and placed third, behind Takuma Sato (221.219mph) and Colton Herta (219.607mph).

After the activity, Canapino was very satisfied with what had been done. “We tried a lot of things. I was always with clean air, no suction, so this is our job for today trying to get a better car for qualifying and gain confidence. We’ve tried a lot of things, a lot of different setups, so it was a good day,” he stated.

And he concluded: “I always tried to get the distance with the cars in front. When you have a huge number of cars it is very difficult to find a turn without suction. But we found it and I think we did a good job. Of course, I’m sad that I didn’t do any suction laps, but the good thing we learned today is that I think it was a good path to start the Indy500.”
