Callum Ilott

Callum Ilott will continue to substitute for the injured David Malukas for Arrow McLaren at a test Monday, March 18 at Barber Motorsports Park and The Thermal Club $1 Million Challenge on March 22-24.

Ilott will drive the No. 6 Arrow McLaren Chevrolet as Malukas continues to recover from hand and wrist surgery to repair injuries suffered last month in a mountain biking accident. Ilott joins full-time drivers Pato O’Ward and Alexander Rossi in the Arrow McLaren lineup for both events.

British driver Ilott qualified 16th and finished 13th as Malukas’ substitute in the season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg presented by RP Funding on Sunday, March 10.

Ilott drove for Juncos Hollinger Racing in the 2022 and 2023 seasons. His best finish was fifth, in 2023 at the season opener at St. Petersburg and at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in the season finale.

Malukas is entering his third season in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES but his first with Arrow McLaren after moving to the team following his first two seasons with Dale Coyne Racing with HMD. He produced a podium finish in each of his first two seasons after graduating from INDY NXT by Firestone, both at World Wide Technology Raceway, placing second in 2022 and third last season.
