Servia To Return To Panther DRR In 2013

Oriol Servia will return to drive the No. 22 Panther Dreyer & Reinbold Racing car for the 2013 season, the team announced.

It will be the second consecutive season with the team, whose car is powered by Chevrolet. After a switch to the 2.2-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 Chevy engine at the beginning of May, Servia recorded a fourth-place finish in the Indianapolis 500 after starting 27th. He followed with top-five finishes on the street courses of Detroit and Toronto and the Milwaukee Mile.

"We had several great on-track performances this past season, including our fourth-place finish at the Indianapolis 500, but we're not satisfied," Servia said. "Our goal is to win that race and contend week in and week out for wins and podiums at all races. Continuity is very important in our sport and now we'll be able to build upon our successes in a second year together."

Servia, who has been racing in Indy car since 2000, finished fourth in the 2011 IZOD IndyCar Series standings. The 1999 Indy Lights champion also was runner-up in the 2005 Champ Car World Series standings.

Through the strategic alliance between Panther DRR and Panther Racing, Servia will work with JR Hildebrand, driver of the No. 4 National Guard Panther Racing car. Both drivers will test at Sebring International Raceway next week.

"As an organization, we have worked very hard to be in the position to hire a talented driver whom is an appropriate fit to the personality of our team both in and out of the car," team co-owner Dennis Reinbold said. "We couldn't be happier to have the continuity of a second year with Oriol in the No. 22 car. We're also excited to see our ongoing increased investment in the technical and engineering areas of our team result in success within our off-season development program and on-track performance next year."
