On Monday, the Arrow McLaren INDYCAR SERIES Team announced that Callum Ilott will test with the team this week at Homestead-Miami Speedway as the outfit conducts three days of hybrid testing.

Ilott is being evaluated as a possible candidate to substitute for David Malukas, who has been ruled out of the season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg presented by RP Funding in just under three weeks.

Gavin Ward, Team Principal, Arrow McLaren, said:

“We all wish David a speedy recovery, and we’re working out some options with the No. 6 NTT DATA Arrow McLaren Chevrolet crew in the meantime. Callum had a seat fit last week and will test with us in Homestead, and we’re looking forward to working with him this week. Then, hopefully we’ll be able to confirm our roster for St. Pete soon after.”

Callum Ilott, Driver, said:

“Obviously I feel sorry for David and the team. It’s not easy to be in this position especially just ahead of the start of the season. I wish him the best and a speedy recovery. I’m glad I’m able to help out the team, and it’s a privilege to test this week with Arrow McLaren. I’m thankful they’re considering me for the opportunity.”

Pato O’Ward will be in the No.5 Chevrolet on Tuesday while Callum Ilott will be in the No.6 on Wednesday before Alexander Rossi drives the No.7 on Thursday.
