Tony Kanaan at the Indy 500 with Arrow McLaren SP
And a 22e Indy 500 Tony Kanaan! Still as motivated by the idea of competing once again in IndyCar’s biggest race, the Brazilian will indeed be on the starting grid of the 107e edition of the « Greatest Spectacle in Racing » as the Americans like to call it.
In 2023, Arrow McLaren SP will enter a 4e car especially for the winner of the 2013 edition in addition to those for full-time starters Pato O’Ward, Felix Rosenqvist and Alexander Rossi. A first in the team’s history.

» I feel extremely lucky to have another chance to compete in the Indy 500said Tony Kanaan. I look forward to working with Pato, Felix and Alexander and racing with the Arrow McLaren SP team. My biggest battle in racing last year was against these three drivers, so working with them and driving with them will be exciting for all of us.. »
Victorious in Indianapolis 9 years ago, the 47-year-old veteran remains on a good 3e place behind Pato O’Ward and the winner Marcus Ericsson (Chip Ganassi Racing). For his 22e participation in the Indy 500, Tony Kanaan will try to get a 2e Borg-Warner Trophy 10 years after the first.
