It was announced earlier this week that Harding Racing will fiels two cars in the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season finale Grand Prix of Sonoma next weekend with Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires champion Patricio O’Ward and Colton Herta making their IndyCar debuts.
The news immediately called into question the future of Colombian Gabby Chaves with the Indianapolis based team.
There have been persistent rumours that the Mike Harding led operation are in financial trouble however Paddock Eye understands that these reports are completely untrue and are unfounded.
As for the ruomors surrounding a Andretti Autosport merger or McLaren buy out, these reports are also believed to be unfounded.
Paddock Eye understands that the reason behind Patricio O’Ward joining Harding Racing despite his Andretti Autosport links is because unlike Andretti, Harding had a seat available.
