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 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda, 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 series and two cars in the next tier Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires.  Currently, Cape Motorsports drivers Parker Thompson and Anthony Martin are first and second 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, this season has been a little difficult.  

"The opportunity to join a multi-championship winning team such as 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 24/25. 

Notes: 

Jordan Cane is currently the youngest open wheel racing driver in the world.  His rookie season in 2015 achieved 7 wins from 15 races and 10 podiums in all. 

For 2016, he has graduated to the start of the Mazda Road to Indy Series in USF2000 and scored his maiden podium in the opening race weekend at St Petersburg, FL – the youngest ever podium in the history of the series. 

A native of West Sussex, Jordan divides his time between the UK and US during the racing season.
