After IMSA, Tom Blomqvist will make his Indycar debut in the coming months. Engaged with Meyer Shank Racing in IMSA, the Briton will have the opportunity to try out with the American team in Indycar. It remains to be seen whether the son of Stig Blomqvist will manage to be as comfortable behind the wheel of a Meyer Shank Racing single-seater as his Acura DPi.
» This is very exciting news for me, I am going to have my first chance in Indycar later this year, I am very grateful to Mike and the whole MSR team for giving me this opportunity which I am waiting for impatiently. Obviously I’m still focusing on IMSA, there are two races left, we’re in the lead and we have to finish the job first. says Tom Blomqvist.

This test should probably be just a short-lived freelance in Indycar for Tom Blomqvist this year. Indeed, if he wants to evolve with Meyer Shank Racing in Indycar, the Briton will have to wait. Hélio Castroneves should keep his seat in 2023 and Simon Pagenaud is already confirmed for the next season.
