Star Contributor : Simon Pagenaud
Welcome to our first ‘Star Contributor’.
At the HSOR we particularly love Simon Pagenaud.
Not only is he a very fast and professional race driver, he is a very nice and good person.
After a successful career in sports car racing that saw him winning the 2010
American Le Mans Series, he moved to the Indycar Series and very quickly made a strong impression.
In 2015 he joined the very prestigious Penske Racing and nearly won the Indy 500, leading with less than 30 laps to go.
In 2016, Pagenaud scored 5 consecutive podiums in the first races of the season, including 3 wins in a row. By the end of the season, logically he was crowned Indycar champion.
With 11 wins, 10 poles and 26 podiums so far, Simon Pagenaud is one of the favorites of the NTT Indycar Championship.
