Two-time defending Australian Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin has completed his test in Indycars in Florida.
McLaughlin, who captured his second consecutive Supercars title this year, completed more than 140 laps in a Team Penske Cheverolet at the Sebring Motor Speedway.
The New Zealander, who drive for DJR Team Penske in Australia, had some high powered help as he climbed into a top-line single-seater for the first time.
The team's three IndyCar Series drivers, Josef Newgarden, Simon Pagenaud and Will Power were on hand for support and direction.
The 26-year-old native turned more than 140 laps on the tough Sebring road course as he quickly got up to speed and adapted to the handling of the open-wheel machine.
"Unreal, the car is a beast," said McLaughlin. "It's everything I dreamt of. I'm so thankful to Roger, Tim and Team Penske to be able to come over here and run an IndyCar. It's a dream come true."
"It's been a big day. 141 laps, the neck is pretty sore. We held on and did a long run at the end, and I got a feel for everything. Qualifying runs, race runs, long runs, fuel loads and pit exits so it was really cool."
Team Penske advisor, four-time Indianapolis 500 champion and Inycar legend Rick Mears was also at Sebring to help McLaughlin during the test.
After establishing a new Supercars series single-season record with 18 victories - including a win at the famed Bathurst 1000 race - in 2019, McLaughlin will return behind the wheel of the No. 17 Shell V-Power Ford Mustang for DJR Team Penske in 2020.
