JDC MOTORSPORTS AMONG FAVORITES FOR TOP F2000 HONORS IN CANADA
Chris Miller and Juan Pfeiffer set to make Canadian racing debuts at renowned Mosport International Raceway road course
MINNEAPOLIS, MN. (August 21, 2008) -- JDC MotorSports will renew its efforts in the F2000 Championship Series this coming weekend (August 23-24), with Rounds 11 and 12 taking place at the high-speed Mosport International Raceway facility in Canada. Returning to a two-car effort, rookie standouts Chris Miler and Juan Pfeiffer will once again get behind the wheel of their JDC-prepared Van Diemen F2000 entries.
Miller makes his first trip "North of the Border" not only as one of the favorites for top honors during the F2000 Championship Series doubleheader, but also as a leading championship contender. Having previously achieved success in the karting ranks, the Minnesota-based driver has shown both the speed and skill to be a champion in his first full season of open-wheel competition. Miller will be piloting the No. 85 Miller Milling/Red Line Oil/JDC MotorSports entry and is the lone driver to finish among the top-10 in every race thus far, standing on the podium four times in the process. As a result, the JDC rookie enters the penultimate event on the 2008 calendar second in the title fight.
Pfeiffer continues his rookie season this coming weekend seeking to break his recent run of bad luck. While the Colombian has shown good speed in his No. 86 Miller Milling/Red Line Oil/JDC MotorSports car, it has not translated into the results desired, with only one top-10 in the past four races. Given that Pfeiffer scored his best result to date (seventh) at Watkins Glen, a fast flowing track similar to Mosport, the JDC driver is poised to leave Canada having improved on his 12th place position in the championship standings.
"After a little bit of misfortune at Road America, we now go to one of the most important tracks of North America with lots of expectation and with the biggest crowd of the year," stated Pfeiffer. "This year, we have not been able to really show our potential and this weekend would be the perfect place to change that, and I'm sure that with all the hard work of all the JDC crew we can do it. We're hoping to have a really good weekend, showcase our potential and get some good points to climb up in the championship standings."
The sixth event of the 2008 seasons gets underway for JDC MotorSports drivers on Thursday via a promoters' test day. One day later, the series rookies will get two 25-minute practice sessions to become accustomed to the demanding road course just east of Toronto, Ont. Following the same format as previous events, both Saturday and Sunday will feature a morning qualifying session which will set the grid for the 30-minute race later in the day.
