The 23-year-old tested with Herta's team at Sebring in February and was good enough to impress Herta, who drove in the series before starting his own team.

Hawksworth started racing karts at age 13. In 2010, he joined the Formula Renault U.K. Winter Series, finished third in the points and was the series' top rookie.

In 2011, he started moving up the American open-wheel ranks. He dominated in the 2012 Star Mazda Series, breaking the record for most wins, poles and fastest laps in a season. Last year, Hawksworth competed won three times and finished fourth in the Firestone Indy Lights points.
