Harding confirms Chaves for full 2018 season

13 January 2018 – Gabby Chaves will return to the IndyCar grid full-time in 2018 after completing a deal to drive for Harding Racing.

Harding launched a three-event programme with 2014 Indy Lights champion Chaves in 2017, with the youngster taking a best result of fifth at Texas.

Harding will now step up for a full programme this year, and has retained Chaves to pilot the No 88 car.

"After the success we had in our three races of 2017, the next logical step was to take the team to a full season." said Mike Harding, team owner.

"During the off-season we have continued to build Harding Racing by adding key people to key positions to become a strong contender in the IndyCar Series."

Chaves, meanwhile, will return to full-time competition, after partial campaigns with Dale Coyne in 2016 and Harding in 2017.

"I really can't begin to express how happy and excited I am to get back on track full-time with Harding Racing." said Chaves.

"We built a really strong team in a very short amount of time in 2017. I'm looking forward to building on that and will be excited to see what our new team members will be able to do to take us to the next level.

"Most of all, I'd like to thank Mike Harding for believing in my potential and for giving me this opportunity. I can't wait to see what we can do and believe we can have a lot of success together."
