British driver Callum Ilott will complete the 2021 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season with Juncos Hollinger Racing, team officials announced Friday, Sept. 10.
Ferrari Formula One test driver Ilott initially was named to drive the team’s No. 77 Chevrolet at the Grand Prix of Portland on Sunday, Sept. 12. He now also will drive in the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey on Sunday, Sept. 19 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca and the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on Sunday, Sept. 26.
“On top of starting my debut weekend in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES with Juncos Hollinger Racing, we will also be finishing off the championship together,” Ilott said. “Let’s see what we can achieve in the next couple of weeks at some awesome circuits.”
Ilott tested Sept. 2 with Juncos Hollinger on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course in advance of his INDYCAR debut this weekend at Portland. This also will be the season debut for Juncos Hollinger Racing.
“The entire Juncos Hollinger Racing organization is thrilled to keep Callum Ilott onboard for all three races to finish off the NTT INDYCAR SERIES season,” team co-owner Ricardo Juncos said. “We are looking forward to a great debut as a team tomorrow on track and to build on each session throughout the next few weeks.
“Callum brings a great deal of talent, and we have all been working hard together over the past few weeks to build our program, so it feels great to carry this relationship as a team for the rest of the season.”
