Team Apex Takes Podium in Formula BMW Americas Opener
Rookies take 3rd, 6th, and 7th in race 1

Puebla, Mexico (21 March 09)--Team Apex got a strong start to the 2009 Formula BMW Americas season on Saturday, as Australian James Kovacic led the Apex charge with his run to third place in round one at Autodromo Miguel E. Abed in Puebla, Mexico. It was a strong team outing, as Brazil's Joao Victor Horto scored 6th ahead of teammate Colombian Martin Sala, who came home in 7th.

The race was the first Formula BMW Americas event for all three racers, who are also making their first visit to the Puebla track to open the 2009 season. The result continues Team Apex's long history of developing young rookies for success, and the team will look for an even stronger outing in Sunday's round two event, which will utilize the finishing positions from round one to set the grid.

"We're really happy to open the season with one of our drivers on the podium," said Team Apex Director of Commercial Development David Hunt. "We got a strong start to the year with some productive tests, and to continue that momentum in the first race of the year is very gratifying. James did a fantastic job today, and Joao and Martin have also been extremely composed and focused this weekend, racing on a new track in a new series, so hopefully we can come back tomorrow and be strong in the race again."
