Daniel Erickson to test US waters at F2000 series opener

Daniel Erickson is making a flying visit to the USA to contest next weekend's opening rounds of the F2000 Championship Series at Virginia International Raceway.

The 22 year-old Sydney driver brokered a last-minute deal in the 'development' openwheeler series with prominent American racing identity Jon Baytos.

The following weekend, Erickson will attend the IndyCar round at Long Beach in California to speak to teams in the Indy Lights 'feeder' series.

The trip will give Erickson a first-hand view of the US racing scene, something that was impossible during his Formula Star Mazda test in Houston, Texas, last December.

"This visit is an opportunity for me to test the waters in America now that the racing season is underway, which I couldn't do when I was there during the off-season," he said.

"Although I had hoped to do the US Star Mazda championship this year, the F2000 Championship is still a very competitive 'development' series with more than 30 drivers entered at Virginia.

"To be honest I don't know how I'll go on a circuit I've never driven before, but a top 10 result would be great."
