Argentine Agustín Canapino, with a unit from the Juncos Hollinger Racing team, fulfilled his personal dream of participating in the traditional Indianapolis 500 motor racing, one of the tests that make up the so-called ‘Triple Crown’ of the activity, along with the Grand Prix Formula 1 in Monaco and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Canapino participated this Sunday in the 107th. edition of the 500 Miles in the 27th. location and became the fourth Argentine pilot to take part in the emblematic monoposto race in the United States.

The 33-year-old native of Arrecifes is racing in his first season in IndyCar but his colleagues are not dismissive of the dangers he will pose.

“He has all of Argentina behind him. He’s been very impressive this year and people dismissed him even before it started,” recorded American Josef Newgarden, two-time IndyCar champion. “He did tremendously well for no experience. I can’t speak highly enough of him.”

“We have to think about arriving. We know that we have a car to reach the Top 20 and that would be spectacular. But we have to see if it happens. If I finish them it is already a victory, but if I arrive in the top twenty, it is a mega victory It’s easy to advance, that’s why track position is more important than before,” Canapino had said in the previous one.

“The demand that I have here, I never had in my life. I have been here for three months and surely with time it will improve,” he said. “I have a big change physically and at a professional level I had to change completely. In Argentina the level is high, but this is the maximum and you have to work triple”.
