F2000 (USF1 Feeder Series) Under IRL Umbrella


What Happens When Any Good Driver Will Do

2:31pm EST — Just over a month ago, new Formula1 team for 2010 USF1 endorsed the F2000 series as “one of its official ‘feeder’ series” in their quest to field an American driver in their “Made in America” team sooner rather than later.  Wednesday, Dan Andersen, the series co-founder and -owner, announced that his series would be run under the IRL series umbrella as a development series for open-wheel drivers.   According to Andersen, in 2010 the series will have “an attractive schedule and rules, cost-containment, an even playing field, a professional operation and support from promoters, marketing partners and the media.”  According to AutoWeek, who published the story, there will be a “12-race schedule in 2010, with some events positioned as doubleheaders for a total of seven or eight racing weekends. Road courses and street courses will make up the bulk of the schedule,” however, two oval circuits are apparently also being considered.  This will increase the opportunities for American open-wheel drivers, in addition to the IndyLights and Atlantics Series, both also part of the IRL series after the IndyCar and Champ American open-wheel series re-merged this year.
