After scoring an IMSA championship title, two Rolex 24 Hour victories, a Petit Le Mans victory and five pole positions with Meyer Shank Racing in IMSA competition, Blomqvist is now making the step into the NTT INDYCAR SERIES full-time with MSR. Blomqvist is a proven race winner and champion amongst the sports car ranks, but he is now heading back to his roots of open-wheel competition.
Blomqvist got a taste of INDYCAR competition prior to his 2024 debut, having competed at Toronto, Portland and Laguna Seca with MSR. Although it’s been nearly a decade since his last open-wheel outing, Blomqvist has quit the resume to back that up. In his first-season of professional open-wheel competition, Blomqvist scored back-to-back third place finishes in both the Formula Renault 2.0 Sweden and Formula Renault NEZ championships. Blomqvist went on to clinch the 2010 Formula Renault UK championship.
In addition, the British racer scored a runner up finish in the European Formula 3 championship in 2014 which would be his final open-wheel outing aside from his two select Formula E race starts.
