James Davison says that securing a berth in the IndyCar Series is still his highest priority.
After enjoying his first test in a V8 Supercar at Winton Raceway yesterday, Davison is working hard on sourcing a budget for the 2012 IndyCar Series.
Last month, Davison tested with Andretti Autosport at Palm Beach International Raceway, and while he says that V8 Supercars would be a great fall-back category, he is committed to finding a ride in the United States-based series.
“That’s what I’ve been working my whole career,” said Davison, who finished second in the 2009 Indy Lights Series.
“I left Australia when I was 18, and I’ve gone through the whole road to Indy. The Andretti test was something that I’d worked hard for and had a really good day.
“It’s just a question of catching a break.”
Andretti Autosport team owner Michael Andretti says that Davison was impressive in his maiden IndyCar test.
“James had a good record in Indy Lights, and the IndyCar test showed that he can take what he learned and move up to the next level,” Andretti said.
“He gave a lot of good feedback to the engineers – something that’s really important when you’re working in a team setting like this. He worked hard to understand everything about the car and equipment.”
Davison sampled his cousin Will’s Trading Post Racing Ford Performance Racing Ford Falcon FG at Winton yesterday.
