Juncos Hollinger Racing are delighted to announce that Callum Ilott has been cleared to return to NTT IndyCar Series race competition after recovering from the hand injury he suffered in the Indianapolis 500 which forced him to miss the Detroit Grand Prix last weekend.
Having spent a week out of the car obviously in Detroit, looking at the racing from a slightly different angle, I can happily say I am going to be back in the car for Road America. “I have been cleared by the INDYCAR Medical Team today. We looked quite extensively at my hand and the risk of further damage is a lot lower. It’s still a factor, but the track surface in Road America is a lot less bumpy than Detroit. Looking at Road America, I haven’t been there yet, but it’s a good high speed fun track and quite long as well. There are some good overtaking zones, so it should be a fun weekend with a lot of action. I am super excited to get back in, coming off the momentum we had at the INDY GP we should be on for a good weekend.”
Juncos Hollinger Racing team co-owner and Team Principal Ricardo Juncos is hopeful that the team can build on their strong momentum from the month of May starting this weekend in Road America.
We are thrilled to get Callum back in the No. 77 JHR Chevrolet this week,” said JHR Co-owner and Team Prin“We want to thank everyone at INDYCAR Medical Team’s for their support and exceptional care provided to Callum. The focus has been on Callum’s healing progress, and he has been working hard each day to get back on track. We are looking forward to a great weekend at Road America and building off the momentum we had during May.”
