The American developmental automobile racing series sanctioned by IndyCars, Indy lights racing has been the talk of the town these days. The racing series is currently known as Indy Lights, presented by Cooper Tires, the leading tire company being the title sponsor of the sport. Over the years, there have been some unfamiliar names earning huge success by making big in the racing game. While some are still struggling to make a mark.
However, when it comes to listing the emerging stars and rising talent of Indy Lights, there is one name you cannot overlook, Antonio Serravalle. The 19-year-old Canadian race car driver has already impressed the Indy lights fans with his amazing performances. Although Antonio hasn’t won any race yet, that still didn’t cause any hurdles for him in impressing the followers of this thrilling sport. Last year, Antonio Serravalle had a successful Indy season. The teenager in his rookie campaign left some big names behind as he produced his best finish, sixth at Road America.
Inspired by the great Michael Schumacher, Antonio Serravalle started his racing journey at the very young age of 4 when his dad gifted him a go-kart. Since then, Antonio didn’t look back. He participated in many racing events and won numerous races in Italy and all over the world. For the 2022 campaign of Indy Lights Racing, Abel Motorsports has signed second-year Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires driver Antonio Serravalle to drive its No. 11 car.
Starting the new season impressively, Antonio Serravalle claimed a pair of top-10 finishes in the opening two rounds of the season with Abel Motorsports. For the weekend round, he was then signed by HMD Motorsports with Dale Coyne Racing at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for a team test, along with the four other HMD Motorsports entries, as well as five additional Indy Lights drivers. The 19-year-old driver from Canada will continue to carry No. 11 on his HMD-prepared entry as he joins Linus Lundqvist, Daniel Frost, Christian Bogle and Benjamin Pedersen (Global Racing Group with HMD Motorsports) in the organization’s five-car program.
Despite not starting the season with HMD Motorsports, it was not the first time that the two parties collaborated as a team. Antonio Serravalle was set to join HMD Motorsports for the 2020 Indy Lights season before the season was canceled. During the season, Serravalle and the team worked together at multiple test events.
After having back-to-back successful campaigns in the Indy Lights Racing scene, Antonio is ambitious to make a mark in IndyCar racing. He has been making an impact with his impressive performances by competing alongside some marvelous racers. The up-and-coming Indy Lights racer from Canada seems quite determined to make a big name in the racing scene, and we hope to see him competing with the best at the upcoming IndyCar races.
