Carlin will run just one entry in this weekend’s IndyCar season-opener in Texas, as the #31 has been temporarily withdrawn.
The #31 car was Carlin-Chevrolet was originally meant to be driven by former F1 driver, Felipe Nasr. The Brazilian had taken over the role from countryman Sergio Sette Camara after having committed to Super Formula in Japan.
The British team issued a brief statement via social media detailing the reasoning for the withdrawal.
“Due to the economic impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic in Europe, the planned No. 31 Carlin entry will not be entered in this weekend’s NTT IndyCar Series season opener at Texas Motor Speedway.
“We will continue to work with our partners in Europe and aim to have two entries for the remainder of the 2020 season.
“Conor Daly will represent Carlin this weekend in the Genesys 300 as originally planned in the No. 59 Gallagher Carlin Chevrolet.”
