I have just been reading the article above on Autosport. They have an Autosport Plus section which often has interesting articles. Occasionally they will publish a free article such as the one above.
The main bit that has caught my attention is the aim of guaranteeing the 2015 Indy Lights Champion three IndyCar races the following year, including the prestigious Indy 500.
I think this is a great idea. Yes, it doesn’t give the champion a full season in IndyCar, but it at least gives them an opportunity to gain experience in the main series and hopefully impress in their three outings.
It would be nice to see other Motorsport categories introducing a similar rule or guarantee for young, up and coming drivers in lower categories.
