Herta's multi-generational Reynard reunion shaping up for IndyCar finale week at Laguna
The highlight of the upcoming NTT IndyCar Series season finale in Monterey will be on Wednesday afternoon when Bryan and Colton Herta, a father and son duo, share an incredible experience at the 2.2-mile road course. They will be driving the 1998 Reynard-Cosworth CART IndyCar Series car that Bryan previously drove to his first victory at the same track. This will be a special occasion for Colton as well, as he purchased and presented the car to his father on his birthday in May. The car has since been refurbished and prepared for this unique event. With the help of WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, Firestone, and the original crew from 1998, the car will have fresh tires, high RPM capabilities, and around 900hp. Colton is particularly excited to drive the car, as he never had the opportunity to experience these types of cars before. He is looking forward to feeling the power and witnessing how the cars have changed over the years. Bryan will go out on the track first, followed by Colton, who is expected to achieve impressive lap times. Although the car doesn’t have the original Honda engine, it is still a thrilling experience for Colton. Comparing their best laps in the same car will undoubtedly be a memorable moment for father and son. Overall, this is one of the most exciting things that Colton will have done in his career.
