Racing star coming to Barber Motorsports this week

Fernando Alonso will be in Leeds Wednesday to test an Indy car at Barber.

One of the perks of Leeds being so close to Barber Motorsports Park is getting to welcome racing stars to the City of Valor.
On Wednesday, Indycar reports that Fernando Alonso will test an Indy car at Barber in Leeds, but the two-time Formula 1 champion said on Indycar.com it will not be a factor in deciding where he races next season.
“I like to test all kinds of cars,” Alonso told reporters at the Italian Grand Prix. “Last year (Michael) Andretti wanted me to test the car with a road track configuration. We had no time, and this year we have the chance, but it’s not a key day ahead of next year to decide whether I do it (IndyCar) or not. It’s just a test to have a bit of fun and to see what the cars are like with a normal configuration.”
The Barber test will be closed to the public and media.
