Rahal Letterman is back in Indycar racing and have signed ex-F1 pilot Takuma Sato to drive one of their cars. Nice to see two Honda legends teaming up together. Hopefully the collaboration will be a successful one for both of them.:w00tz



Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Tabs Takuma Sato to Pilot its IndyCar Series Entry

INDIANAPOLIS (February 3, 2012) – In evaluating the numerous prospects campaigning for a seat in the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Honda-powered Indy car for the 2012 season, the Indianapolis-based team was searching for the right balance of speed, success and experience to lead it into the new era of IZOD IndyCar Series competition.

With his glittering Formula 1 resume and strong recent results demonstrating his continuing climb up the IndyCar Series grid, Takuma Sato proved to have all of the tools for the job, as the team named the Japanese veteran to pilot the team’s #15 Dallara/Honda/Firestone - one of its two Indy cars in 2012.

Sato, who made 91 starts over seven seasons in F1, joins RLL after making great strides in IndyCar in 2011. A two-time IndyCar Series polesitter last year, Sato looks to build on a successful sophomore season that saw him earn three top-five finishes, seven top-10s and lead 61 laps on his way to a 13th-place finish in the point standings.
