Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Dubai-based Bri­ton Ed Jones will grad­u­ate to the Indy­car series next sea­son with Dale Coyne Rac­ing.

Jones se­cured the Indy Lights ti­tle this year with Car­lin af­ter over­haul­ing ri­val San­ti­ago Ur­ru­tia at the fi­nal round of the sea­son at La­guna Seca in his sec­ond sea­son in the series.

He will now join four-time Champ Car cham­pion Se­bastien Bour­dais at Dale Coyne’s epony­mous Indy­car out­fit for 2017.

“I’m hugely ex­cited to be step­ping up to Indy­car with Dale Coyne Rac­ing,” said Jones, 21. “To reach an agree­ment early is great news as it gives me plenty of time to set­tle into the team so we can pre­pare as well as pos­si­ble for the sea­son ahead.

“Indy­car has been my goal ever since I left Europe to race in Amer­ica, and it’s crazy to think I’ll be join­ing the grid just two years af­ter mov­ing state­side.”
