I’m looking forward to watching the new series unfold and hope Servia and d’Ambrosio bring home some podiums for the team.”
Conway will be driving in the six hours of COTA in Austin Texas on the September 20.
Oriol Servia has been competing in IndyCar this year and has had a successful single seater career, which includes seasons in Champ Car and being crowned the 1999 Daytona Indy Lights champion.
