Stefan Wilson will try to qualify for the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race on next 21 and 22 May at the wheel of a car engaged by the KVSH Racing to honor his brother Justin, who died on last August 24 after an accident at Pocono.
So, KVSH Racing will engage three cars in Indianapolis, regular car of Sebastien Bourdais and that of PIRTEK Team Murray driven by Matthew Brabham. Stefan Wilson have been able to raise funds to compete in the race through Indiana’s donor network and its association, Driven2SavesLives. We must remember that Justin Wilson gave his organs after his decease, which allowed to save six lives.
“Like so many other drivers, I grew up dreaming about the Indianapolis 500 and it’s all I have worked toward for the past few years. Justin raced in the 500 eight times and it was a dream to join him on the starting grid and race against him. I just never anticipated a situation where Justin wouldn’t be there with me” said Stefan Wilson.
KVSH co-owner added: “Having spoken with Stefan throughout the winter about this project, I am very pleased to see it come to fruition. Not only has Stefan proven to be a fast driver but he brings the complete package to the table. It also goes without saying that it will warm the hearts of everyone in the racing community to see him drive the No. 25 (last car of his brother)”.
In 2011, Stefan Wilson finished 3rd IndyLights championship. He takes part in his only race in 2013 in Baltimore, driving a Dale Coyne Racing car, then he is also the teammate of his brother and finished 16th in the race.
