Sebastien Bourdais and Dalton Kellett will be sharing a car with Tony Kanaan in the NTT IndyCar Series 2020.
While Brazilian Kanaan will do the five oval races, the Frenchman and Canadian will share the 12 remaining road- and street courses.
Bourdais starts in the season in A. J. Foyt Enterprises Chevrolet #14 in St. Petersburg, continue at Barber Motorsports Park and finish off his spring season on the streets of Long Beach. Then Kellett will have COTA in Texas, and the Indianapolis road course.
Then the bit carousel starts to turn, with Kanaan doing Indy 500, Kellett in Detroit, Kanaan at Texas Motor Speedway, Kellett at Road America, Kanaan in Richmond, Kellett in Toronto, Kanaan in Iowa, Kellett at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Kanaan at Gateway, Bourdais in Portland before Kellett finishes off with the season finale at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
That means that no driver will have two race weekends in a row, from mid-May until the season finale.
Bourdais lost his seat at Dale Coyne Racing in late 2019, moving to a full-time job in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. But now he adds these four Indycar races to his calendar – including his home town race in St. Petersburg.
26-year-old Kellett has done the Road To Indy programme for many years, having raced in USF2000, Indy Pro 2000, Pro Mazda Series, while the four most recent years has been in Indy Lights. He has had a go at sportscar racing too, with three class victories in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship LMP2 category.
The NTT IndyCar Series 2020 starts on 15 March on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida.
