Juncos Hollinger Racing’s Callum Ilott, driver the No.77 Chevrolet says that he is looking forward to seeing where the team are having competing at Long Beach last season which formed part of the trio of races at the end of last season.
The Englishman heads to the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach has been able to lead five laps last time out in the XPEL 375 at Texas Motor Speedway.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend he said:
To go back to Long Beach, which is where we finished off our trio of races at the end of last year will be a good experience for me to see where we are. Obviously, we hope to have made a lot of development with the No. 77 JHR Chevrolet since then, so I am excited to see what we can achieve. I am looking forward to the sun and a great race in front of the fans.
Team co-owner and Team Principal Ricardo Juncos says:
“After two races we have seen a lot of potential in our growth as a team and with Callum. We have finished each race and we have been able to lead laps, which has been great for our momentum as we move forward. This weekend will be the first time Callum gets to compete at a track that he has experience at, so this will be a great test to see how far we have come since the end of the 2021 season.”
“I am really looking forward to being back in Long Beach after all the progress we have made during the off season and the past two events. This team has really come together in such a short time and the chemistry among everyone is incredible. Callum has done a great job, giving the team the feedback needed to move forward as we continue to build this program. We still have a lot of work to do, but I am confident we will only progress as the season continues.”
