Junior Strous Decides on Dutch GT4

Junior Strous, who was currently fourth in the Indy Lights championship, has decided to race at Zandvoort this weekend in the Dutch GT4 championship rather than in his Indy Lights car at the Milwaukee Mile. There are a couple different rumors circulating in regards to his decision. The most probable, per a comment on planetlemans.com, is that his Dutch sponsors wanted him to run at home. I'm sure Strous and everyone involved in his racing this season are disappointed in his recent Indy Lights results, after such a promising start to the year---where he swept the opening rounds at St. Petersburg. That said, it would be odd to see them drop Indy Lights so early in the season. Hopefully, his GT4 stop is a one-off and we will see him back in the #18 Lights car soon.

At Zandvoort, he took the pole positions in Q1 and claimed Q3 for Race 2. You can follow his results this weekend: here.

It's apparently already a done deal that he will be in the ICS next year, and with no major rewards for the driver (compared to Atlantics), the sponsors probably have no issue pulling him from one race in FIL because those same sponsors will be running him in the ICS next year.
