Kimi Raikkonen will be making his return to motorsport with the American NASCAR series, and his first race will be at Watkins Glen on August 21. The Finnish driver, who has begun necessary arrangements for his fresh start, arrived in America yesterday and went to visit the Trackhouse Racing team, with which he will participate.
Raikkonen encountered the team’s personnel at the factory in Charletto, North Carolina, and had the seat modified before getting behind the wheel of the vehicle, which was entirely unfamiliar to the 2007 Formula One World Championship winner.
A fresh start for Kimi Raikkonen
Kimi Raikkonen competed in NASCAR a few times more than a decade earlier, but the automobiles and roster have changed radically since then. Raikkonen must once again catch pace with most of this regard.
Nonetheless, Raikkonen has demonstrated in the past that he is adaptable and possesses the required racing skill sets. As a result, it is unlikely for him to encounter any troubles. Raikkonen, who will race as #91, also presented his new helmet.

The red helmet says “Project91,” which alludes to a Trackhouse-tuned endeavour in which a slew of tough motorsport identities are vying to get behind the wheel of the latest Project91 car. Raikkonen is the first person to embrace the idea.
