In the night from Thursday to Friday (Dutch time) in Indianapolis, Rinus van Kalmthout surprisingly conquered pole position for the Harvest Grand Prix. It was the first time that the Hoofddorper set the fastest time in an IndyCar qualifying.
Twenty-year-old Van Kalmthout went around the inner circuit of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1.09.609. This made him slightly faster than Colton Herta (second) and Marco Andretti (third).
With his first pole position, Van Kalmthout is a fitting follow-up to a strong debut season in the IndyCar Series. ‘VeeKay’ regularly finished in the top ten and leads the rookie championship.
Earlier this year, IndyCar drivers also competed on the indoor circuit of the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Van Kalmthout then finished fifth after a nice catch-up race.
The Harvest Grand Prix starts on Friday at 9:50 PM (Dutch time). Another race is scheduled for Saturday at 8.15 p.m. in Indianapolis. The IndyCar season will close on October 25 with a race on the street circuit of St. Petersburg, Florida.
