Kyffin Simpson is moving over to HMD Motorsports for the rest of the 2022 season in Indy Lights.
The 17-year-old from Barbados contested the opening eight rounds with TJ Speed Motorsports, with a pair of fifth-place finishes the highlight to currently sitting eighth in the championship standings. Simpson revealed the switch to his new home on Monday, with his first race with HMD Motorsports coming this weekend at Iowa Speedway.
“I’m excited to join HMD Motorsports at Iowa and for the remainder of the season. They have a proven package with Linus Lundqvist leading the championship, as well as three different drivers on the podium this season, and I’ve been impressed with their ability to field five competitive cars. In our discussions it’s become clear they can field a sixth car at the same level – an opportunity I believe is too good to pass up at this stage in my development.”
“I made my FR [Formula Regional] Americas debut in late 2020 with HMD and have a good relationship with the crew, so we have a solid foundation to build on. Of course, having a great group of drivers as a direct reference point ultimately pushes me to raise my game even more. I’m ready for the challenge, and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together in the remaining races this year.”
“I’d like to thank Tim Neff and the whole TJ Speed Motorsports crew for everything they’ve helped me achieve in the last 18 months. We had an incredible run in FR Americas, an experience I’ll never forget. We both agree however that our performance this season hasn’t met expectations. I wish Tim and the team all the best for the future.”
