Sebring, Oct. 25, 2011: Long Beach Indy Lights winner, Conor Daly, did 62 laps of the Sebring short course yesterday with the Team E Indy LIghts team helping them develop a new paddle shift system. Team E is independently developing the Pro Shift PS3 paddle shift system for the Indy Lights car and Daly’s experience was tapped into as he is familiar with this paddle shifters having spent a season using it in Europe in GP3.

“Firstly I want to thank Neil Enerson and his team for inviting me to take part in the test. They have done a great job with the system and it worked flawlessly. The biggest advantage to the system is that it allowed me to concentrate more on driving the car more precisely”, said Daly.

Team E will continue development of the system at the upcoming Road to Indy test sessions at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, October 28th - 29th.

Daly’s next event is the Autoweek America Adventure Road Rally from Seattle to Las Vegas. Oct 26th - Nov 1st. Daly and co driver, Paul Sparta will drive an Audi R8 GT.
