Conor Daly has finally signed his contract to race in the GP3 Series in Europe.
It took longer than expected to pull all of the pieces together to confirm his full European program. Daly will drive the No. 1 ART Grand Prix entry for the season in GP3, which is a support series to Formula One.
Last year, in his first year with the team, Daly established himself as a force to be reckoned with while scoring a victory at Barcelona and five podium finishes. During winter testing in the new car, Daly posted the third and fourth best times at the Barcelona and Silverstone circuits.
Even beyond the race results though, it was Daly’s display of speed, raw talent and overall performance that greatly impressed the French team.
“I am very much looking forward to being back with ART Grand Prix again,” Daly said. “Their history in the junior levels is impressive and I want to add to their legacy. Testing went well and the new car is so much better than before. I can’t wait for Barcelona.”
Daly will make his Indianapolis 500 debut this season driving for A.J. Foyt Racing.
