Getting the goods from racers

Drivers talk to Metro about their superstitions on the track

Helio Castroneves



Do you have any superstitions when it comes to racing?

“I am not superstitious. I do have a little pre-race ritual which involves having time by myself for about 10 to 15 minutes to go over a mental checklist that prepares me for the race.”



Ryan Briscoe



Do you have any superstitions when it comes to racing?

“I really don’t have any superstitions when it comes to racing and my pre-race ritual is really nothing more than being sure that I have eaten optimally and I like to have a little time to myself to do a little stretching, warming up and mentally preparing for the race.”



What do you drive when you’re not racing?

“I like to spend time on the lake with my wife Nicole so you can often find me driving my boat when I’m not racing. But I also have a smart car and I like to drive that around Charlotte (NC) when I’m running around.”



Will Power



Do you have any superstitions when it comes to racing?

“I really don’t get much into being superstitious, but there are a few things I do on race weekends. I don’t shave on race day, I get into the car from the same side all weekend long and I like to have a banana and honey sandwich before the race.”



Justin Wilson



Do you have any superstitions when it comes to racing?


The only thing I have or do is get in the race car from the left side every time. I think that’s more of a comfort and routine than anything else.



What do you drive when you’re not racing?

“Honda Ridgeline. Love it especially with the wheels from Motegi Wheels.”
