Quantum Racing to Skip F2000 Season Finale
The Quantum Racing Services team will miss the F2000 Championship Series finale at Mid-Ohio due to budget constraints. They contested the past three rounds in the 2010 championship, with Australian rookie Daniel Erickson, and scored the most points during those events with 2 wins and 3 second place finishes. Quantum now heads to the VSCDA Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival before competing at the prestigious SCCA National Championship Runoffs.
"It's unfortunate that we won't be running at Mid-Ohio this weekend, as this has traditionally been one of our team's strongest tracks, but we wish everyone the best up there," said team principal Wendell Miller. "It's been a really great season and we would like to thank Jon Baytos of Primus Racing for his engineering support and Brad Baytos of Primus Racing Parts."
"The F2000 Championship Series has some of the largest fields and some of the tightest racing in the country and we look forward to returning full time in 2011 with an expanded program. We are planning on doing a lot of testing this winter and can't wait to get started. The team is ready to start working with some of the young up-and-coming talent and preparing them for future success."
The Quantum ladder program is up and running this year with their Honda powered Van Diemen Formula F cars. They believe this is the best place to start testing out of karts and also running at SCCA National events as early as age 15. This provides a perfect training ground for F2000 and will prepare their drivers' to fight for the F2000 title during their rookie campaigns.
