Following three seasons in motor racings doldrums, 27-year-old Portadown driver Adam Carroll has reportedly signed a deal with Indycar’s Andretti Autosport squad to drive a small number of races later on this season.
Carroll – who won the 2008-09 A1GP Championship for Ireland – also spent three full seasons in GP2 and also acted as a technical support for upcoming drivers in the junior series. The Irishman had also been approached by Hispania and Virgin for a drive in Formula 1 this season, but these negotiations never produced a seat.
As fast as Carroll is, he has on occasion struggled with consistency, but with a solid backing – as he had during his tenure at A1GP – he showed that he can deliver very solid results and it is that very consistency that the newly reinvigorated Andretti Autosport may be able to deliver. Carroll has won races at every level of motorsport in which he has raced and will be hoping to add Indycar to that impressive list. News of which races Carroll will compete has yet to be released.
