Video: Nigel Mansell’s first IndyCar test (1993)
In 1993 Nigel Mansell won the CART season as an IndyCar rookie. Fresh from the ranks of F1 after complexities had arisen surrounding his place on the Williams team, Mansell was winning races and breaking records straight off the bat. He’d go on to win a total of five races and place on the podium during five others, yet none of this legend was written at the time that this video was filmed. Instead this clip captures Mansell jumping behind the wheel of an IndyCar for testing during the lead-up to his debut season.
Of course Nigel would go on to win the 1993 Championship, before unfortunately knocking himself out at the TOCA Shootout.
