Briton Jones joins Dale Coyne for Indycar
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.”
