Autosport: Wickens targeting race wins on racing return with Hyundai

Photo by Michael L. Levitt / Motorsport Images via website reports, “Robert Wickens is “aiming big” on his return to racing, three years after the IndyCar crash that left him with a spinal injury that curtailed his topline open-wheel career.”

“Wickens will race in the TCR class of the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge this season in a Hyundai Elantra N run by Bryan Herta Autosport, teaming up with fellow Canadian Mark Wilkins.”

“Now resigned to the fact his recovery has plateaued, he has pressed ahead with working out the hand control system after a ‘track day’ in one of Hyundai’s TCR cars at Mid-Ohio last year and now committed to a full season with the factory-blessed BHA squad.”

““There’s a lot of emotions, a lot of gratitude for sure, to Bryan Herta Autosport and Hyundai for giving me this opportunity,” he added. “First off, there were a lot of times during my recovery when I thought it was possible, then I thought it wasn’t going to be possible.”
