Piedrahita to contest fourth Indy Lights season in 2017
Colombia's Juan Piedrahita will remain in Indy Lights for a fourth campaign in 2017, rejoining Team Pelfrey.
Piedrahita, 24, will be back behind the wheel of the Pelfrey #2 Dallara IL-15 car that he drove for most of the 2016 campaign.
Seventh in his debut season with SPM in 2014 and eighth a year later with Belardi, Piedrahita was out at Pelfrey with five races to go last year - but has now reunited with the outfit.
"I couldn’t be happier to rejoin Team Pelfrey for the 2017 Indy Lights season," Piedrahita said.
"After working with the crew last year, I knew it was the right fit coming into this year. Gary [Neal, team boss] and Yves [Touron, race engineer] have given me a lot of confidence and they always have a very competitive car at every track."
Pelfrey, which took over the 8Star outfit for its Lights debut last year, took a sole podium in its first campaign, courtesy of Scott Hargrove.
"We are extremely happy to welcome Juan back to Team Pelfrey IL for the 2017 Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires,” team boss Gary Neal said.
“We built a lot of momentum in post-2016 season testing with Juan and I am sure we will see some great results this season.”
