Former IndyCar and Formula One driver Derek Daly’s son Conor will test drive an A.J. Foyt Enterprises Honda at Sebring International Raceway on December 13th. The 20-year old is coming off of a good season over in Europe in the GP3 series where he won and ran up front in nearly every race. He was on the ladder system to be the next American in Formula One, but doesn’t have a deal for next season yet. He’s hinted that he would like to run in the IZOD IndyCar Series and would love to race in the Indianapolis 500. He’s no stranger to racing in America either as he’s worked his way up the ladder from Skip Barber to Star Mazda to the Firestone Indy Lights Series, and then to GP3. He has the distinction of winning in every series he’s ever raced in and would be a development driver for someone to grab in the IndyCar circuit. The test will be the first sign of whether he can get a full-time ride. I’m hearing this is just a test and nothing more. The team has said they’re getting close to signing a driver for the No. 14 ABC Supply Co. Honda for next year and Daly more than likely won’t be in that car. They will be using rookie Chase Austin in the No. 41 Honda for the Indianapolis 500 only and trying to work a development deal for him. They also have expressed interest in a young USAC driver to move up the ranks and be another development driver for the team. If the test goes well, don’t be surprised if Daly lands with Ganassi to fill the void left by Graham Rahal. Both Foyt and Ganassi run Honda engines and they could use a young American driver like Daly to fill that seat. It would be a valued seat and a competitive seat for him to jump into. Daly said yesterday on his twitter that if Tony Stewart wouldn’t take Roger Penske’s offer to run in the Indianapolis 500 he’d gladly jump in. With his interest back in IndyCar, someone needs to sign him before he gets a Formula One offer. The kid is the real deal and would be a huge asset for the series. Now that they have his attention they can’t let him go. The post IndyCar: Conor Daly gets test with A.J. Foyt Enterprises appeared first on Race Review Online.
