Servia to enter Indy 500 with Scuderia Corsa, RLL
Oriol Servia will return to the Indianapolis 500 in May as part of a joint entry between IMSA outfit Scuderia Corsa and Verizon IndyCar Series regular Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing.
Servia has featured in every Indy 500 since 2011, recording a best finish of P4 back in 2012. The Spaniard retired from last year's Indy 500 and was classified 21st for RLL Racing.
Servia will return to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the 102nd running of the race in 2018 as Scuderia Corsa makes its IndyCar debut, with the team being a class winner at Le Mans, Sebring and in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
"As you can imagine, I'm very excited first to be at the 500,” Servia said. "If you remember last year's race, we were running really strong until it came to an abrupt end with 10 laps to go.
“We needed another party to ensure we're going to win. Obviously both teams are very successful, winning teams. I couldn't be happier that they agreed.
"When you put two teams together, you never know how it's going to come out. They both saw the advantage of taking this shot together, with our friends at Honda supporting, too. I couldn't be happier."
