Californian teen announces attack on the 2007 Formula BMW USA championship
Nevada City, CA - It was announced this morning that driving ace Alexander Rossi has inked a deal to run with Hearn Motorsports in the 2007 Formula BMW USA championship season.
Rossi, 15, who made a huge impact during his first year of circuit racing in 2006, revealed his decision to compete with Hearn Motorsports saying "For several months now we have been interviewing and auditioning with a number of top-level teams that showed interest in my racing career. It was a very difficult decision for us, as all the teams we spoke with had strengths, but it became obvious that with Richie's commitment toward my program, our collective goals were aligned."
Team owner Richie Hearn was equally as enthusiastic, "Hearn Motorsports is very excited to have Alexander on board for 2007. I think he's going to represent our team very well and we are going to do everything we can to get him to the top step of the podium multiple times."
Hearn Motorsports has a history of binging out the best in young drivers, including its highly influential role in the early career of newly crowned Indy Pro Series Champion Jay Howard. Speaking of his new charge, Hearn has no doubts. When asked what he expected of Rossi in 2007 Hearn replied, "If we just do our work on the team side of things, I'm confident Alexander will do his duty and win races."
With over two dozen highly talented young drivers vying for the title next year it will take a concerted, season-long effort from the team and Rossi himself to capture the crown, but Alexander isn't phased. "I'm very motivated for this upcoming year and the hard work necessary to have a successful season." He said, "Motorsport is so competitive these days that as a driver, you have to have everything in place behind you before you can make a challenge."
"I have some great sponsors in BP Landscapes, The Performance Drink, Skip Barber Racing Schools, G. Russell Enterprises LTD, Team Rossi Motorsports, LLC, Emagine Designs, Pit Fit Training, Sparco USA, Axcel Fast Graphics and Racecom of Virginia. With their help, combined with the talents of Hearn Motorsports, I have no doubt that I have all the components necessary to deliver a championship in 2007."
