Since its inception, JAY Motorsports has prided itself on helping talented drivers develop both behind the wheel and outside of the cockpit. With an emphasis on giving its racers all the tools to reach their goals, the team has done just that, as evidenced by two alumni (Nick Evans and Patrick Gallagher) capturing the Mazda Club Racer Shootout. The trend of a JAY Motorsports racer making his mark in the junior formula car ranks looks set to continue in 2013, as former world karting champion and French Formula 4 National Auto Sport Academy Championship Rookie of the Year Latorre makes the move to North America race action with JAY Motorsports. The 15 year-old, having already impressed his new squad with his skill, attitude, and desire, will contest the entire 14-race USF2000 Championship. Given the experiences gained by the squad - which has relocated to Andersen RacePark in Florida - in its first season of series competition last season, combined with its winning heritage and the talent Latorre brings to the table, the stage is set for a strong run in the highly-competitive Mazda Road to Indy series.
"I am very excited to be entering the USF2000 Championship with JAY Motorsports," stated Latorre. "The team has an incredible motivation. We have already run a few days together, and the atmosphere was exceptional and very professional. I've loved US motorsports for a long time, and I hope this year will be the beginning of a long career here. I've already had the chance to race karts in Las Vegas at the SKUSA SuperNationals, but this year with tracks like Sebring, Laguna Seca, and Indianapolis on the USF2000 schedule, it will be fantastic and very exciting. I'm a rookie, but I hope really soon to be among the best drivers in the category. I am working very hard and I am in hurry to be at Sebring for the first race."
"This is the first time that we have decided to take a so very young driver from Europe to participate in the Mazda Road to Indy program," added Germanovitch. "Florian has demonstrated qualities so impressive for his age, that we decided to give him a chance here. We are extremely demanding with our drivers, and we will do our best to help Florian throughout the season. We are also extremely pleased to be working with JAY Motorsports, who shares the same vision that we have for professional motorsports. I hope this will be the starting point of a long and wonderful adventure together involving Florian, and other drivers in the future."
Under the continued guidance of owner and founder Jay Green, JAY Motorsports will now be based in Florida. With a new overall emphasis on formula car competition - having previously also been an SCCA Enterprises Customer Service Representative and leading Spec Racer Ford team and prep shop - the multiple Formula Enterprises SCCA National Championship-winning squad will run a multi-car operation in the USF2000 Championship and SCCA Club Racing out of its new headquarters at Anderson RacePark in Palmetto, Fla.
