Autosport has been formed with the intent of competing in some rounds of the NTT
IndyCar Series this season.
The newly formed team plans to have a car ready by May for the GMR Grand Prix at Indianapolis and also hopes compete in the Indianapolis 500.
Autosport is a partnership between father and son Robert and Nick Citrone, the
latter a Data Analytics Coordinator for the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team,
and brothers Tom and Robbie Buhl.
Robbie Buhl competed
in 78 CART and IndyCar races between 1993 and 2004, earning two wins in that
time. Robbie later served as television
commentator for a couple years alongside longtime broadcaster Jon Beekhuis.
Robbie formed Buhl Sport Detroit in 2015 and have spent the past few years delivering
“ultimate motorsports experiences” for paying customers. They have now turned their focus to forming a
race team to enter IndyCar racing.
and Buhls see this as the beginning of a long-term racing endeavor with the
goal of growing their venture with more entries in the future.
At this time an engine manufacturer, potential drivers, or additional race entries for this season have not been announced. This year’s GMR Grand Prix at Indianapolis will be run May 9.
