Tomas Enge knows what Milka Duno is experiencing in her limited IndyCar Series first season. It takes more than a few laps to get accustomed to the speed of the car, in traffic, on unfamiliar high-banked ovals.If you do not remember, Enge wadded up more than a couple vehicles in his brief ICS career - mostly on the Panther Racing tab. Here's the stat that matters: 17 Races Started, 8 Running At Finish.
He's been there (2004 with Panther Racing) and will assist Duno in preparation for the Firestone Indy 200 this weekend. SAMAX Motorsport has engaged the Czech driver to set up the No. 23 CITGO Honda-powered Dallara during testing on the demanding 1.33-mile Nashville Superspeedway concrete oval before Duno gets in the seat.
"I'll try to show Milka some things from a driver's perspective, help her understand more of the car," said Enge. (MORE from Indycar.com)
Tomas Enge: Good driver, not so good IndyCar driver. At least the Czech can always be counted on as a big IndyCar fan.
"I've always said I'd like to come back," he said. "I'm a big fan of high-adrenaline sports and IndyCar has the most adrenaline in car racing in the world."
