Two-time Virgin Australia Supercars Championship winner Scott McLaughlin is set to move to North America on a full-time basis in 2021, facilitated by Team Penske and defying expectations with a switch to IndyCars.

Scott McLaughlin’s career path defied the normal trend to Supercars. While many drivers spent time in open-wheel cars in between go-karts and touring cars, the New Zealander moved from go-karts straight into a Supercar at 16 years of age. Now he stands on the brink of a full-time move into IndyCar racing; remarkable considering his lack of time in an open-wheeler.

McLaughlin tested a Team Penske IndyCar at Circuit of the Americas and Texas Motor Speedway in the off-season, impressing with the third quickest time at the former. He was scheduled to make his debut at the Indianapolis GP in May, though the coronavirus pandemic looked set to delay that.
