Juncos Hollinger Racing announced on Wednesday that Argentinian Agustin Canapino, who made his NTT INDYCAR SERIES debut with the team alongside Callum Ilott in 2023 will remain with the team for 2024.
Team co-owner Brad Hollinger said:
Agustín Canapino has been the surprise of the season for us, and we’re absolutely delighted to have him back for 2024. His determination and performance on the track have surpassed all expectations.”
Ricardo Juncos, co-owner of Juncos Hollinger Racing said:
Agustín’s incredible achievements on the track have not only exceeded our expectations but have also been a source of pride for our entire team. His energy, dedication, and sportsmanship have united us and created a sense of camaraderie that is truly exceptional. We look forward to continuing this incredible journey together.”
Canapino who returns for the season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg presented by RP Funding on March 10 is looking forward to build on his promising debut season.
“I am very happy to announce my continuation for 2024 in IndyCar with Juncos Hollinger Racing. Many thanks to Ricardo and Brad for continuing to place their trust in me, and also to Hector Martinez Sosa, the Grupo Empresario Prieto and the INPROTUR for their support. After an incredible 2023 season, where we achieved good results, entered the Leaders Circle, and consistently delivered strong performances, all in my first year in a single-seater, I am filled with joy and motivation to have the opportunity to keep growing as a driver and contribute to the continuous and remarkable evolution of the team. For 2024, the mindset will be different. What was once filled with doubt and uncertainty will now be a relentless pursuit of improving day by day, seeking results and consistency in each race. Of course, we don’t forget that we are still a relatively new team competing against strong competitors, but we approach this challenge with the eagerness and hunger to aim higher every time. See you in St. Petersburg aboard the #78!”
Ricardo Juncos highlighted the support received in 2023 from the National Institute for Tourism Promotion (INPROTUR) through the Visit Argentina brand.
“This allowed us, among other things, to bring Agustín Canapino, and for the first time in the history of INDYCAR, it enabled strong tourism promotion for Argentina throughout the entire year of competition, including the legendary Indianapolis 500. In this iconic race, car #78 proudly displayed the colors of the Argentine national football team, and for the first time, a replica of the World Cup made its way onto the grid of North America’s fastest auto racing competition.”
