Andretti Global’s Kyle Kirkwood had a breakthrough 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season despite an overall tough and disappointing year for the team.
Kirkwood, who made his NTT INDYCAR SERIES debut with AJ Foyt Racing in 2022 moved to Andretti in 2024 replacing Alexander Rossi in the No.27 AutoNation Honda.
Kirkwood took victory in two races this year, at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach and the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix which gives him something to build on for the 2024 season.
Romain Grosjean in the No.28 DHL Honda had a solid start to the season having claimed pole for the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg presented by RP Funding.
Grosjean gave Andretti a 1-2 finish in Long Beach coming home behind Kyle Kirkwood.
The Frenchman followed this result up with another second place finish at the Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park.
Colton Herta in the No.26 Gainbridge Honda had a single podium finish in 2023 which came at the Honda Indy Toronto in July where he finished the race in third place.
Devlin DeFrancesco’s best result over the course of 2023 came in Detroit where he came home in 12th place.
For 2024, Andretti Global has undergone big changes with the arrival of Marcus Ericsson from Chip Ganassi Racing who replaces Romain Grosjean in the No.28 Honda.
Grosjean has moved to Juncos Hollinger Racing while Andretti Global has trimmed their full-time program from four to three cars.
It will be interesting to see how the team gets in 2024.
