Christian Lundgaard is competing for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing in the No. 30 car starting in the 2022 NTT IndyCar Series season, the team announced Oct. 20.
It’s part of a multi-year agreement for the Denmark native.
Lundgaard ran for the team at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course earlier this year and finished 12th after qualifying in fourth.
He currently competes in the FIA Formula 2 Championship and is ranked 11th in the standings. He won two races in 2020.
“I’m very excited to join Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing in INDYCAR,” Lundgaard said in a team release. “They are a fantastic team who made me feel very welcome earlier this year when I made my debut in the series. They are the perfect choice and I’m happy to join them on this next chapter in my career. I was very much open minded when I raced at Indianapolis in August and the experience then only grew my hunger to give it another go, so to have the opportunity as a full-time professional racing driver is a privilege.
“I can only thank Bobby, Piers and the team, as well as my investors and Alpine for putting it all together. I’m determined to repay that faith with on-track performances beginning when the season starts in February.
Full contract and sponsorship details will be announced at a later date.
Jack Harvey is also joining RLL next year after it was announced that Takuma Sato won’t return to the team in 2022.
