Aussie secures new USF2000 deal
Australian open-wheel driver Anthony Martin has struck a deal to remain in America’s USF2000 series for a second season.
The Perth native has switched from John Cummiskey Racing to Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing for the new year.
Martin scored five podiums in 16 races last season, finishing fourth in the final standings.
The 21-year-old is the second Australian to join the series following the announcement that CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 champion Jordan Lloyd will link with Pabst Racing.
“It is going to be a very strong field of drivers this year and I am very proud to again be a part of it,” said Martin.
“To be able to race for a very competitive and professional race team like Cape Motorsports is an honour and to be back in America to fight for the 2016 Championship is something I am very much looking forward to.
“The 2015 season was a great learning year for me in the USF2000 Championship and to finish fourth in the series and win Rookie of the Year, I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to the American racing scene.”
Martin will head to Barber Motorsports Park for the pre-season test from March 6-7 ahead of the opening round of the championship at St Petersburg from March 11-13.
