Adam Carroll could make a return to IndyCars

Adam Carroll could make a return to the IndyCar championship later this year, according to an article in this week’s AUTOSPORT magazine.

The Northern Irishman contested two IndyCar races last year in an entry backed by Andretti Autosports and AFS Racing, finishing 16th at Watkins Glen and 18th at Mid-Ohio.

It is believed that he is now eyeing a return to the championship at the Motegi round later in the year, again with the Andretti team.

“Andretti Autosport is where I want to be, and I’m working flat-out to make it happen,” the 28-year-old is quoted as saying. “I’m working on a sponsor at the moment. We’re talking about a one-off [outing], which would be Japan if it happens.”

Carroll has had limited racing mileage this year, making his maiden open-wheeler appearance of 2011 at the recent Formula Renault 3.5 series round at the Hungaroring. Racing for P1 Motorsport, he finished fourth in the first race, third in the second race.
