Scuderia Corsa, the Verizon IndyCar Series’ newest entrant, is working to transition its one-off debut at the Indy 500 into a full-time effort in 2019.
Team co-owner Giacomo Mattioli, who founded the Ferrari-affiliated team with Art Zafiropoulo, says IndyCar is where he wants to expand Scuderia Corsa’s footprint to complement their championship-winning sports car programs. Their initial foray into IndyCar has come in a partnership with Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing for Oriol Servia, who qualified 26th for the 500.
“It might be crazy, but that’s what we’re working on,” Mattioli told RACER. “It’s 50/50 [for a] full season for next year; we’re not there yet. But we are in advanced talks. We would love to add a full-time IndyCar program to our platforms. Obviously, we’ll stay in Ferrari Challenge and GT racing with Ferrari, but also it would be nice to have an IndyCar program so we’re working towards that. I can’t say much more for now, but hopefully.”
