IndyCar: Ganassi to test New Zealander Nick Cassidy this week

New Zealand Formula E driver Nick Cassidy will join Chip Ganassi Racing for their two-day test at Sebring in Florida this week after finishing a strong second in the inaugural Hyderabad E-Prix last Saturday.

Chip Ganassi Racing has been the long-time team of six-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon and is the new home of fellow Kiwi Marcus Armstrong, who is racing road circuits this season.

Cassidy’s testing comes as his Envision Racing Formula E contract is up for renewal at the end of the 2023 Formula E circuit, giving him the chance to weigh up his options.

The 28-year-old could also shift to Supercars though where he is linked to Shane van Gisbergen’s Triple Eight Racing.

Cassidy has built an impressive resume in a short amount of time, after racing in both the German Touring Cars and the FIA World Endurance Championship alongside Formula E last year and currently sits third in FE this season.
