Romain Grosjean is continuing his IndyCar career at Juncos Hollinger Racing. The team of Argentinian origin revealed today that he will occupy the #77 seat left vacant by the departure of Calum Ilott last week. The Swiss-born Frenchman will pair up with Argentinian sophomore Augustín Canapino, who was confirmed a few weeks ago after the team secured the necessary funding for another campaign with him.

The three-time polesitter had a competitive start of last year’s IndyCar campaign, but after a pair of poles for Andretti Autosport the performance went downhill, resulting in a couple of driver-induced DNF’s, eventually ending his tenure in the #28 Andretti.

The team looks to utilise Grosjeans experience in both IndyCar and Formula 1 to boost the team’s performance.

Co-owner and team principal Ricardo Juncos said: “Romain brings an unparalleled pedigree in motorsports. His leadership and experience are precisely what we need to propel JHR to new heights in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES.”

Brad Hollinger, the other co-owner, added: “Romain has a history of competing at the pinnacle of motorsports. His expertise will be invaluable as we strive to redefine our performance metrics, both on and off the track.”

Grosjean himself is looking forward to joining Juncos Hollinger Racing he said in the teams press statement:

“I’ve been closely following JHR’s ascension in the past few seasons. The team has showcased significant growth and I am eager to contribute my experience as we aim for a strong 2024 season.”

The 2024 IndyCar season starts on March 10th in St. Petersburg, Florida.
