Andretti Autosport changed Firestone Indy Lights drivers for Day 2 of the Chris Griffis Memorial Test, but the team still finished on top of the times.
2011 Star Mazda Champion Tristan Vautier turned the fastest lap of the two-day test, 1:20.0061, bettering the lap set by Peter Dempsey in the same No. 5 Andretti Autosport car by more than a half-second.
"I'm really pleased," Vautier said. "I didn't really try to focus on being first. I just tried to do my job for the team. I got up to speed very quickly and as I got used to the car, we made more changes. It was very good and got the fast lap."
Fast Andretti Autosport drivers was the theme for the test and the team dominated the Firestone Indy Lights and Star Mazda portion of the test as Dempsey led both sessions of Day 1 and Vautier topped both of Day 2's sessions. Zach Veach, who will for the team in Star Mazda in 2012, led three of the four sessions for Star Mazda cars though Englishman Jack Hawksworth beat him for the fastest overall lap of the two days with a lap at 1:25.4308 in a Team Pelfrey car.
Series runner-up Spencer Pigot turned the fastest overall lap in USF2000 in an Andretti Autosport car (1:28.6190) just ahead of newcomer Scott Hargrove of JDC Motorsports, who led the morning session.
"To be driving out there against people who were in the series last year and to be competitive against them, it really boots my confidence, especially being new to the series, new to the car and new to everything, really," Hargrove said.
