Nico Hülkenberg will conduct an IndyCar evaluation test with Arrow McLaren SP at Barber Motorsports Park on Monday, October 25. The test will enable Hülkenberg to experience an IndyCar for the first time, a one-off opportunity he has agreed with the team. 

Hülkenberg’s extensive motorsport resume includes 179 Formula 1 starts, including a pole position, along with a win at the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans. 

The test will take place at Barber Motorsports Park, Birmingham, Alabama, a 2.3-mile, 17-turn road course where Pato O’Ward captured pole position earlier this year for the Grand Prix of Alabama. 

The team continues to evaluate a future third car program, however its focus for 2022 remains on the No. 5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet driven by Pato O’Ward and the No. 7 Vuse Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet driven by Felix Rosenqvist. 

Nico Hülkenberg

“I am pleased to try out an Indy car and see what it’s all about. I want to thank Arrow McLaren SP and Chevy for the opportunity at relatively short notice. While I don’t have any current plans to race in IndyCar, it will be great to drive a car for the first time and get a feel for the series.”

Taylor Kiel, President, Arrow McLaren SP

“We’re looking forward to welcoming Nico and giving him his first taste of IndyCar in an Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet. Barber will be a great track for him to get his first laps and gain some miles in a new form of open-wheel racing.”
