Harvey set for IndyCar return in Texas

In the opening round of the season at St. Petersburg, the Rahal Letterman Lanigan motorist moved into the wreck of Rinus VeeKay’s Ed Carpenter Racing cars and truck on Lap 42 of 100, at the Turn 4 tire wall. The RLL device then needed to soak up a 2nd effect as Kyle Kirkwood’s Andretti Autosport entry struck it on the back and introduced itself.

Harvey was required to the medical center and after that sent out for more assessment at a regional healthcare facility to examine his aching right wrist and left lower arm.

IndyCar’s medical specialists would unclear the Briton to go back to the #30 Honda-powered RLL vehicle in time for Monday’s test at Barber Motorsports Park. Rather he gave up driving responsibilities to previous Formula 2 motorist Juri Vips, who evaluated along with Christian Lundgaard and Graham Rahal. The Estonian had actually impressed the group in a test at Sebring in 2015.

An RLL declaration at the time stated, “Harvey will be examined once again prior to making his go back to competitors at the PPG 375 at Texas Motor Speedway on April 2.”

This afternoon, the group validated that the examination had actually been a favorable one, and Harvey can go back to action for IndyCar’s 2nd round, the PPG 375 at Texas Motor Speedway.

The declaration checked out: “Jack Harvey has actually been cleared to go back to competitors by the INDYCAR medical group after being associated with a multi-car occurrence in the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on March 5. The next NTT IndyCar Series race is the PPG 375 on Sunday, April 2 on the 1.5-mile oval at Texas Motor Speedway.

” We wish to reveal our thankfulness for the remarkable care the IndyCar medical group and AMR IndyCar Safety Team has actually provided to Jack, both onsite in St. Petersburg and in the time ever since.”

Ironically, it was the Texas race that Harvey missed out on in 2015 due to a heavy shunt in practice. His location was taken at the last minute by Santino Ferrucci, who drove from the back of the field to end up in the Top 10.
