Kyle Novak, race director for the NTT IndyCar Series and Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires, was elected by the FIA General Assembly as one of 36 judges to serve on the FIA Courts. As an FIA judge, Novak can be appointed to sit on an FIA International Tribunal or International Court of Appeal.

Novak, an attorney, is the only IndyCar representative among the FIA judges. IndyCar President Jay Frye serves on the Single-Seater commission, IndyCar Director of Medical Services Dr. Geoffrey Billows is on the Medical commission, and IndyCar Track Inspection Consultant Tony Cotman works on the Circuits commission.

“To be able to add to the list of INDYCAR representatives who have served the FIA is a tremendous honor,” Novak said.

Novak has served as NTT IndyCar Series race director since 2018 and will assume the race director role for Indy Lights starting this season.

The news follows the appointment of NASCAR Executive Vice President & Chief Legal Counsel Gary Crotty to serve on the FIA Courts
