Robert Wickens, who was left partially paralysed after a near fatal IndyCar crash, will get back in a race car for the first time since his accident by racing in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Cup championship, the Canadian said on Friday

Wickens will team up with compatriot Mark Wilkins driving a Hyundai prepared by Bryan Herta Autosport (BHA) in the series season opener on January 28, a four-hour endurance race that is part of the 24 Hours at Daytona race weekend.“It’s been a long, winding and difficult road to this point and the journey is not over but (I'm) thankful we’ll be able to move down the road with a bit more speed,” said Wickens on Twitter. “Now, let’s go win.”

Wickens, a former Formula One test driver, sustained devastating spinal injuries and multiple fractures to his arms and legs in a crash at Pocono Raceway in 2018 when his car went airborne, catapulted into the catch-fencing and disintegrated across the track.

Wickens will team up with compatriot Mark Wilkins driving a Hyundai prepared by Bryan Herta Autosport (BHA) in the series season opener on January 28, a four-hour endurance race that is part of the 24 Hours at Daytona race weekend. “It’s been a long, winding and difficult road to this point and the journey is not over but (I'm) thankful we’ll be able to move down the road with a bit more speed,” said Wickens on Twitter. Newsom made the announcement after a California review board in August recommended Sirhan be released from prison, subject to review by the board’s legal staff and by the governor himself. “Now, let’s go win.  "The plan is to stay in the same team this year, give 110% commitment to my career.” Wickens, a former Formula One test driver, sustained devastating spinal injuries and multiple fractures to his arms and legs in a crash at Pocono Raceway in 2018 when his car went airborne, catapulted into the catch-fencing and disintegrated across the track. Outlining his decision in an opinion piece in the Los Angeles Times, Newsom said he disagreed with the Board of Parole Hearings finding that Sirhan, 77, was suitable for parole. The specially designed car he will now drive is fitted with a custom hand-control system and switch that deactivates the hand throttle when Wilkins takes over the cockpit. It’s nothing big and I hope to be good soon.

“Today is a monumental day for us as a team and as fans of Robert Wickens,” said Bryan Herta, president of BHA in a statement. Sirhan’s lawyer, Angela Berry, suggested in a written statement issued in response that Newsom had bowed to political considerations in denying her client parole. We have a chance to go up and we have a new stadium so that is motivation. “We have followed along with Robert’s rehabilitation and marvelled at his determination and dedication, along with his many, many fans. “To now announce that he will be making his professional motorsports return in one of our Hyundai Elantra N TCR cars is truly incredible. We are confident that the judicial review of the governor’s decision will show that the governor got it wrong,” Berry said.”  READ MORE .  "What matters, first is to focus on my job, fight for promotion, then I can visit my family but not to stay and play in the PSL.
