HVM Test: IZOD On Car

As Chris over at Indy Racing Revolution pointed out, IZOD is currently on the HVM website as a sponsor, but if you want a little more evidence you can slide on over to HVM's twitter page where the above photo was found, notice the sponsorship. The tweeter also made an interesting note that it took just an hour to convert the car over from Ryan's setup who is one of the tallest drivers in the league to E.J's who happens to be one of the smallest. Which is pretty quick considering they would have to replace the seat and adjust the peddles among other changes.

“Today was the day Ryan drove the car. It was good to use his experience and confirm that we have a good car. In the last couple of years, since we last worked with Ryan, he has definitely matured and developed into a stronger driver.

“Ryan was able to give us some good input to further develop the car and we’re pleased with the results. We expect E.J. to benefit from this and have a good test tomorrow.” -Keith Wiggins

“It went really well considering I haven’t been in a car since Australia. It felt great to be in the car again. We hit the ground running. The team put together a really good racecar, one I feel I could be fast in.

“It was a good reunion with HVM. Thanks to Keith Wiggins and everybody at HVM for giving me the opportunity to test with them. I hope we can come to an agreement that leads to racing at St. Pete.” -Ryan Hunter-Reay

“It was great to have another good driver in the car. With Ryan working alongside me, it will really help us develop the car. I’m looking forward to testing tomorrow.” -E.J. Viso

Seems to be a pretty good sign for Ryan and while your checking out HVM's twitter page you can take a gander at mine.
