French first to see Pagenaud’s likeness on Borg-Warner Trophy

Simon Pagenaud, the 2019 Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge, unveiled his face on the Borg-Warner Trophy today in Paris, the capital city of his native France, the first time the race winnerā€™s likeness has debuted outside of the U.S.
Pagenaudā€™s likeness is the 106th face to be permanently fixed to the trophy.
Next, an in-studio session takes place where Pagenaud poses while Behrends works on a full-scale clay model of his face to better capture Pagenaudā€™s personality.
Once that is complete, Behrends polishes, buffs and refines the image before affixing it to the Borg-Warner Trophy.
