Grosjean Lands Juncos Hollinger IndyCar Ride

MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Romain Grosjean will compete for his third NTT IndyCar Series team in four seasons as the longtime Formula 1 driver will join Juncos Hollinger Racing next season.

The IndyCar team co-owned by Ricard Juncos and Brad Hollinger made the announcement on Thursday morning.

Grosjean will take over the No. 77 Chevrolet previously driven by Callum Ilott, who was informed last week by the team that he would not be returning.

“I’ve been closely following JHR’s ascension in the past few seasons,” said Grosjean, a Frenchman from Geneva, Switzerland. “The team has showcased significant growth, and I am eager to contribute my experience as we aim for a strong 2024 season.”

After a decade of Formula 1 competition, Grosjean joined IndyCar in 2021 with Dale Coyne Racing with RWR. By the end of that season, he was lured over to Andretti Global, taking over the No. 28 DHL Honda in what seemed like a great matchup between team and driver.

But it never really worked out and after two tumultuous seasons, Grosjean’s contract was not renewed. The 37-year-old returns to one of the smaller teams in IndyCar hoping to recapture what he experienced with Dale Coyne Racing in 2021.

“Romain Grosjean brings an unparalleled pedigree in motorsports. His leadership and experience are precisely what we need to propel JHR to new heights in the NTT IndyCar Series,” Juncos said.

Brad Hollinger is co-owner of JHR.

“Romain Grosjean has a history of competing at the pinnacle of motorsports,” Hollinger said. “His expertise will be invaluable as we strive to redefine our performance metrics, both on and off the track.”

With the addition of Romain Grosjean, JHR solidifies its commitment to achieving new milestones in the upcoming season with second year driver Agustin Canapino of Argentina.
