After racing in Asia and Europe, India's Armaan Ebrahim will now drive in the United States. He will take part in the Firestone Indy Lights Championship with team Fan Force United, piloting the team's No. 24 JK Tyre Dallara.

“Armaan is considered one of the brightest stars moving up through the ranks in European and Asian Formula racing,” said Team Principal Chris Williams, in a press release.

“We agreed early on that we would not race until we found someone who could compete to win the championship. We have definitely found that driver with Armaan.”

Armaan said he is thrilled about participating in the Series. “I am really looking forward to spending my summer in the U.S., driving in the Lights Series,” he said.

“The guys at Fan Force United have a great program put together and we all plan to really make things happen on the track this summer.

Coming to Indianapolis is also something very special for me at this time in my career. It's a great racing city and I hope to be here for quite some time.”
