Great Performance for Nico Jamin at Mid-Ohio

Nico Jamin traveled to Ohio to compete in the Allied Building Products Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio, Rounds 12, 13 and 14 of the 16-race Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda, with the goal of keeping the lead in the 2015 championship.  He did more than that. The 19-year-old driver from Rouen, France, was able to score the pole position for each of the three Mid-Ohio Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda races, and also win the three races, becoming the first driver to sweep all three legs of a triple-header, since the formation of the Mazda Road to Indy ladder in 2010.

This remarkable Mid-Ohio performance was Jamin's fourth win in a row in the 2015 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda, and his eight win of the regular season.

Jamin's weekend performance is to be shared with his four-time defending championship-winning team, Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing, led by the Cape brothers, Dominic and Nicholas, who so far in 2015, have won a total of nine races out of 14.

Jamin, driving the No. 2 Synova Automotive Eco Plastics/BRM Chronographes/All Road Academy/French Tuesdays/Racing for France USF2000 Mazda race car, knew that the battle with Jake Eidson and his Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing teammate, Aaron Telitz, would be tough, but the Frenchman was ready for the challenge.

His direct competitors tried everything they could to destabilize him, but Jamin stayed focused on consolidating his championship lead and made no mistakes during the entire weekend.

Jamin commented about his triple win, after the third USF2000 race of the Allied Building Products Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio.

"I couldn't have expected anything better coming into this weekend. I wanted to score huge points before the last race weekend of the championship. There is so much competition, it hasn't been easy. I just really love it here. We had three test days at Mid-Ohio, so we had plenty of time to set up the car exactly the way I wanted it, so the car was just perfect all weekend. But this does change my mindset a little bit, going into the last race weekend. I don't need to win the races to win the championship. I'm going to keep attacking like I always do, but I won't take big risks."

Jamin recently launched Racing for France Business Club ( to allow qualified interested individuals and corporations to invest in Jamin's American career.

Jamin's goal is now to win his first professional championship. The 2015 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda champion will be awarded a MAZDASPEED Scholarship, which would really help Jamin continue his North American racing career on the Mazda Road to Indy.

Jamin will start the next USF2000 weekend with a comfortable, 50-point advantage over second place Eidson.

The final two races of the 2015 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda will take place at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, in Monterey, Calif., on Sept. 11-13.
