Ilott Hits All The Right Notes in Audition with Arrow McLaren

Professional athletes live by the mantra of being as good as their last result. British driver Ilott excelled in testing at The Thermal Club, ending up fourth quickest overall and quicker than Arrow McLaren teammates Pato O’Ward and Alexander Rossi. Ilott also was quickest among the 27 drivers in the morning test session March 23 at Thermal. Once testing ended and qualifying for The Thermal Club $1 Million Challenge started, Ilott was caught out by a team strategic decision. Drivers hitting their stride on one final flying lap dropped Ilott to eighth out of 13 drivers, with seven drivers improving their times in the final 60 seconds. After his Thermal weekend, Ilott was grateful he meshed well with Arrow McLaren on short notice as Malukas’ substitute. The proof came every time Ilott hopped into the car: He and the team improved.
