Arrow McLaren confirms Ilott for Indy 500

Fresh off his first FIA World Endurance Championship Hypercar win at Spa-Francorchamps, Callum Ilott will look to continue his strong month of May in the No. 6 Arrow McLaren Chevy as the final driver confirmed within the field of 34 entries for the Indianapolis 500.

The Briton, who raced from 27th to 12th for Juncos Hollinger Racing last May at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, will attempt to qualify for his third Indy 500 and get the process started on Tuesday at the opening of practice for the great American race.

“Callum brings experience with this team and at the Indy 500 that we think is very valuable as we enter the biggest two weeks of our season,” said team principal Gavin Ward. “He and the team got along well during the first two events of the season, and we’re looking forward to carrying that over here. I’m confident that Callum and the No. 6 NTT Data Chevy team will be competing near the front of the grid during qualifying and on race day, just like the rest of our cars.”


Ilott raced for the team at St. Petersburg and The Thermal Club; the Indy 500 is his last scheduled event for Arrow McLaren as Frenchman Theo Pourchaire is set to complete the rest of the season in the No. 6 once Ilott is finished in Indy.
