Young British racing driver Jordan Cane today announced that he will be joining Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing for the remainder of the 2016 USF2000 championship, part of the Mazda Road To Indy. Previously, Cane had raced for Team Pelfrey in the same championship before parting company last week.
Cape Motorsports is a multi-championship winning team currently entering three cars in the USF2000 and two cars in the next tier Pro Mazda Championship. Currently, Cape Motorsports drivers Parker Thompson and Anthony Martin are 1st and 2nd in the USF2000 Championship standings respectively.
Speaking about the mid-season change, Jordan Cane said:
“I will always be grateful to Team Pelfrey for providing me with my first opportunity in US motorsport and a very successful season in F1600 last year. However, although starting well with a podium at St Pete’s, this season has been a little difficult.
The opportunity to join a serial winning team in Cape Motorsports was a fairly easy decision to make and although I know there will be more expectation on me now, my sole focus is on being successful for my new team and contributing championship points.
Team Principal of Cape Motorsports, Dominic Cape said:
“We’re all super excited to have Jordan on board for the balance of the season, he had a really good test with us over the winter and we expect Jordan to do very well.”
Cane’s first competitive outing for Cape Motorsports will be in the next round of the Championship at Road America on June 24/25th.
