Juncos Racing have announced that Austrian driver Rene Binder will make his Verizon IndyCar Series debut with the outfit for the 2018 season.
Binder will run four races with Juncos in 2018 starting with the season opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg and will run in Toronto, Barber Motorsports Park and also at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car course.
Speaking about his move to the Verizon IndyCar Series, Binder commented by saying:
I am honored to be a part of the Verizon IndyCar Series for the 2018 season. “I have been a huge fan of INDYCAR and what the series has to offer to me as a driver. I had a hard decision to make this year on which path I would take in my career, and I am confident that I made the right decision. Right now, we have signed for four races, but I hope to add more to our schedule as the season progresses. I would like to thank my sponsors, family and Juncos Racing for giving me this opportunity.
Binder joins Kyle Kaiser at Juncos Racing for the 2018 partial schedule. Speaking about Binder’s arrival team owner Ricardo Juncos commented by saying:
“I am happy to welcome Rene (Binder) to our team and we are thrilled to be a part of his North American debut. “Rene has a successful background running in the World Series V8 and GP2, along with the testing he has done within Formula 1, and I know he will carry that momentum into the Verizon IndyCar Series this year. The timing is right for a talented driver like Rene to join, as everyone will be starting over with the new INDYCAR aero kits. I want to thank Rene for choosing Juncos Racing for his INDYCAR debut, along with his sponsors and family for this opportunity.
