At Austin’s Circuit of the Americas, Enzo Potolicchio told MotorSportsTalk that 8Star Motorsports was close to committing to the new Dallara IL-15 Indy Lights chassis.
Now, officially, they have.
“8Star has placed an order for our first Indy Lights car,” 8Star team manager Gary Neal said in a release. “It will be among the first batch of 10 cars from Dallara due to be delivered mid-November and the 8Star team will evaluate drivers at the first official Indy Lights test at Sebring in December.”
Dan Andersen, owner and CEO of Andersen Promotions, has welcomed 8Star to the championship.
“I am extremely pleased to have a high-caliber organization such as 8Star Motorsports joining our series. Enzo (Potolicchio) and his team have achieved much success in the sportscar ranks, and we know they will bring a top-level program to Indy Lights,” he said.
The team plans a two-car Indy Lights program, while also planning to continue its PC program and potentially add a P2-spec car in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.
