Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing announced on Thursday that highly rated British INDY NXT presented by Firestone driver Toby Sowery will make his NTT INDYCAR SERIES test debut with the team in Sebring next month.
Sowery, who will be with HMD Motorsports this weekend as INDY NXT takes to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course commented on the announcent saying:
“I am grateful to RLL for giving me this opportunity. After the frustrations of 2020 and 2021, I focussed on building a strong team and a more strategic approach to reaching the NTT INDYCAR SERIES. This test is a massive
moment for my career, and I am more hungry than ever to deliver the results I know I am capable of and show what I can offer on the INDYCAR stage.
RLL is a race-winning team with great resources, and last season delivered the Rookie Driver of the Year honors. Bobby Rahal came to meet me in the UK earlier this year; his passion for the sport is infectious. I also visited the new facility before the start of the
season and was hugely impressed by the dedication and commitment to reaching their ultimate goal. This drive to commit everything you can to be the very best and the genuine love of the sport is something I share with RLL, so there is a natural synergy between us.”
The test is part of a greater programme with Rahal for 2024 and speaking about the news, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing co-owner Bobby Rahal said:
“We’re really pleased to be able to do this test with Toby. After a year-and-a-half hiatus, he’s had a great podium finish at Barber and showed his potential. We’re looking
forward to having him with us at the test and anticipate a positive outcome.”
