Andretti Autosport announced today the signing of Ana Beatriz to run in Brazil and Indianapolis as a co-entrant with Conquest Racing.
"Driving for Andretti Autosport is the biggest opportunity I've had in IndyCar and my career," said Beatriz.
With sponsorship backing from Ipiranga, Bia will run the #25 as the fourth teammate of James Hinchcliffe, Marco Andretti and Ryan Hunter-Reay in Brazil and alongside Sebastian Saavedra at Indianapolis.
Although the original rule was to have a cap of 26-cars in Brazil, provisons were made for a 27th.
"After the decisions had been made, our promoter BAND asked us to add Ana Beatriz to the field, and we were happy to accommodate that request without limiting the field for the race," Bernard said.
