AFS joins Carroll's Indy programme


Adam CarrollAndretti Autosport has announced that its Indy Lights partner AFS Racing will step up to IndyCar to become a co-entrant for Adam Carroll's programme.

It also confirmed that Lexington will be the Northern Irishman's second race after his debut at Watkins Glen this weekend.

The AFS/Andretti alliance has won the last two Indy Lights titles with Raphael Matos and JR Hildebrand, and its lead driver Charlie Kimball is second in the 2010 standings at present. AFS made its first IndyCar appearance at Sears Point last year, when it joined forces with the then-Andretti Green team to run Franck Montagny in a one-off deal.

Team owner Gary Peterson hopes that the arrangement to collaborate on Carroll's part-season programme is the first step towards a full-time IndyCar presence for AFS.

"This is a good step for AFS Racing and we're looking forward to working directly with a great, young talent like Adam Carroll," said Peterson. "He tested well at Mid-Ohio this week and we're excited to work with him at these two events.

"AFS Racing would like to make a move to the IZOD IndyCar level at some point in the future and this is a good step in that direction."
