Cape Motorsports, which has won the last six USF2000 titles, will enter three cars in this year’s F4 United States Championship.

The St. Petersburg, Fla. -based team, which in partnership with Wayne Taylor Racing has dominated USF2000 and has also been a race winner in Pro Mazda, has already signed Canadian veteran Steve Bamford who has won back-to-back Masters Championships in the F2000 series. 

Team owners Dominic and Nicholas Cape expect to launch a testing program later this month as they endeavor to fill the two open seats in the lineup.

“We’re pretty excited to add the F4 US Championship to our program,” said Dominic Cape. “The series fits into our overall internal ladder system and will be a great step for young drivers graduating from karting.

“We like the budget and we like the cars, and we’re really looking forward to getting out to the track to begin our test program.”

The F4 United States Championship is entering its second season of competition, having debuted midway through the 2016 calendar year.  The cars are American-made Onroak Automotive North America (formerly Crawford Composites) F4-16 carbon-fiber tub chassis, with 160hp Honda engines and Pirelli tires.

The 2017 F4 US series comprises 18 races spread over six weekends, starting at Homestead road course on April 8-9.
