Valvoline Racing Formula wins Championship in the competitive Danish Formula 2000 series with its American driver Jason Workman. After a perfect weekend, the Valvoline Racing Formula team takes the Danish Championship even before the last two races in October -- and thus winning the title already at the Grand Prix of Denmark (28-29/8) at the Jyllands Ringen makes it absolutely perfect!

Jason Workman, Atlanta, USA.

"I had the faith in myself when I came to Denmark for racing this F2000 series, but never believed that I would win it before the last round -- I can not tell about my feeling right now…my sponsors and the team made huge efforts for this to come through - thanks a lot guys! At the first heat, I started on pole leading the whole race to the finish line! And it was also great to see my teammate Lasse finishing right behind me giving the Valvoline Racing Formula team a one - two finish! In the second race, I just focused on finishing behind Tommy Jespersen which secured me this year´s Championship -- this team is simply the best": says Jason Workman.

Lasse Jakobsen, Frøstrup, Denmark

"After a few hard weekends, I had the speed (starting fifth) to pass 3 cars before the 10th lap was over! Just perfect -- I was right up there with Jason. In the second race, Jason was cautious and got passed by a few cars in the first corner, and we followed each other for a good while. Jason even let me by, but for him to win the Championship early I had to let him pass me again -- I congratulate Jason to his Championship win: he had made a perfect run at it. After a hard season, I am now looking ahead to a more successful 2000 season": says Lasse Jakobsen.

Henrik Nymark, teammanager.

"Whauu -- an American Danish Champion !! Jason and Lasse are two of the greatest talents I have seen racing here in Denmark, and having both your drivers on the podium for the Grand Prix is just great! The whole Valvoline Racing Formula team congratulates Jason Workman on his title -- and payed him back by throwing buckets of cold water all over him!! Jason will now return to the USA and will be back for the finals in October. We would love to continue working with Jason next year in our new Formula Renault 2000 team" : says Henrik Nymark.
