Simon Pagenaud to spearhead 10-vehicle Honda Pikes Peak effort

Simon Pagenaud IndyCar driver Simon Pagenaud will spearhead a 10-vehicle line-up from Honda at this year's Pikes Peak hillclimb.

The US arm of the Japanese manufacturer, which is also a sponsor of the event, has announced plans to enter 10 vehicles across nine classes.

Pagenaud's entry and racing class is yet to be confirmed, however the vehicles will be developed and driven by other American Honda associates racing under the HPD and THR (Team Honda Research) banners.

"Pikes Peak presents us with a unique opportunity to showcase Honda's diverse product line-up and to energise Honda fans around world, as we work to further strengthen Honda's presence in racing at all levels," said Mike Accavitti, Senior Vice President of Automotive Operations for American Honda.

"Our associates will be working hard between now and race day to prepare this diverse field of race vehicles and showcase the Honda racing spirit."

The deal caps off what was already a busy middle of the year for Pagenaud.

Pikes Peak's June 30 date falls on the only off-weekend in the IndyCar schedule between Indianapolis 500 practice and qualifying in mid-May and the Toronto double-header on July 13/14.
