Motorsports photographer Ron Bijlsma and writer Tony DiZinno have paired up to produce a yearbook entitled “The Ladder.”
The book presents and illustrates stories from the ladder series of American open wheel racing, Indy Lights, Pro Mazda and the USF2000 racing series.
Using Kickstarter to get their project printed, the pair hope to give the drivers, teams and sponsors of these three great feeder series more limelight than they would usually receive.
The book, expected to feature more than 300 pages of highlights from the season with over 900 full colour images, will give fans, drivers, team owners and sponsors alike the ability to review their seasons in a high quality printed product.
“In this recap, we look at the Firestone Indy Lights Series, Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires and the USF2000 National Championship Presented by Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda seasons,” the duo said in a press release.
The pair attended 28 race weekends and more then 40 races all over the contintent to produce this work.
“Between March and October, the two of us traveled around the U.S. and Canada to a wide variety of circuits. Ovals such as the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Milwaukee Mile were joined by classic road courses such as Sebring International Raceway and the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, the brand, spanking new Circuit of the Americas in Austin and diverse street circuits in St. Petersburg, Long Beach, Toronto, Baltimore and more,” they said.
