During his full-time campaigns with the team, Ilott concluded the season in 20th and 16th place in the championship standings, respectively. It was a disappointing outcome for the young talent, considering his previous success in Formula 2 and his aspirations to make a mark in the highly competitive world of IndyCar racing.
In a statement released by Juncos Hollinger Racing, the team expressed their sincere appreciation for Ilott’s efforts during his time with the team. The split was described as a mutual decision, suggesting that both parties recognized the need for a change.
This turn of events leaves Ilott searching for a new opportunity in the IndyCar paddock. With his raw talent and determination, it is likely that Ilott will not be without offers for long. Many teams will undoubtedly be interested in securing a driver of his caliber.
As the news spreads throughout the motorsport community, fans and industry insiders are left speculating about Ilott’s future destination. Will he join an established team seeking a fresh perspective? Or will he opt for a smaller, up-and-coming team that offers the chance to build something from the ground up?
