Alex Tagliani has a good feeling going into the 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series with the Barracuda Racing Honda.

And he should.

Last season’s start was a disaster — not of his own making — for the native of the Montreal suburb of Lachenaie.

Tagliani and the Barracuda team began that season with a Lotus engine that was so underpowered it couldn’t even keep up with the worst of the Chevrolets and Hondas on the grid.

Tagliani suffered through with it until the team decided four races into the season to switch to Honda.
