PREMA confirms two-car IndyCar program for 2025

PREMA Racing has confirmed its intent to join the NTT IndyCar Series in 2025 with a pair of Chevrolet-powered cars.

The powerhouse European junior open-wheel team, which also runs Lamborghini’s IMSA GTP program from the brand’s base in Michigan, will establish a dedicated IndyCar facility in Indiana to field the full-time effort.

“Today’s announcement marks a pivotal moment in the history of PREMA Racing,” said team principal Rene Rosin. “Making the step to the NTT IndyCar Series, and competing in the world-famous Indianapolis 500, is a dream coming true for our family and everyone involved in our business. We have tremendous respect for IndyCar, its unique challenges and sensational history, and we look forward to being part of it.”

No drivers have been named, but as RACER has previously reported, the team is understood to be interested in pairing an IndyCar veteran with a young talent it has developed on its ladder to Formula 1.

“While competing in IndyCar will not be easy, we are determined to put in our best effort, learn as quickly as possible and become leading contenders right from the start,” Rosin said. “The desire to fight for victory is our driving force, and the thoroughness of the challenge will give us even more motivation to succeed.

“This new chapter will also be beneficial for PREMA Racing and its people, producing amazing learning opportunities and know-how transfer. We want to thank IndyCar for the warm welcome, and Chevrolet for supporting this project. We cannot wait to start operating in our new Indiana shop and get on track as soon as possible.”

Provided the current field of 27 full-time cars holds firm for 2025, PREMA’s arrival would push the grid to at least 29 entries per race. Depending on how IndyCar chooses to finalize its charter system, and if it opts to cap each race — outside of the Indy 500 — at a maximum of 27 cars, PREMA could be forced to try and qualify for every event.
