Indy Lights frontrunner Jack Hawksworth will get his first opportunity to sample an IndyCar when he tests for Rahal Letterman Lanigan in two weeks.
The Brit, who took a dominant win in Baltimore last weekend, is scheduled to drive the RLL car at Sebring on September 17.
"I can't wait to get behind the wheel of an IndyCar," said Hawksworth. "I have been working towards this moment since the day I first jumped into a go-kart many years ago, and I feel ready to use all those years of experience now at the highest level.
"Looking further ahead to 2014, I would obviously love to be in an IndyCar seat, and if that happens, my aim will be the same as it has always been - to maximise my potential and that of the team and score as many points as possible.
"My goal isn't simply to compete in IndyCar, it is to ultimately win IndyCar races and championships."
With two races remaining Hawksworth is currently fourth in the Lights standings, albeit just nine points behind current leader Sage Karam.
