This is great news for Alonso fans, and for fans of racing collectibles. This, together with his appearance at the Indianapolis 500 in 2017 (and rumored return in future years) shows Alonso’s commitment to pursue racing’s elusive triple-crown: winning the Monaco Grand Prix, the Indy 500 and the Le Mans 24 Hour.
