The Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing driver earned $381,100 Mazda Scholarship on the Mazda Road To Indy for his USF2000 success and was seen as a lock for the team’s ride in Pro Mazda, after showing similar pace testing the more powerful cars.
Said team owner Dominic Cape: “Nico demonstrated to everyone how competitive he was in capturing 13 pole positions, winning 10 races and ultimately claiming the 2015 championship along with the coveted Mazda scholarship.
“Nico has impressed us already during the initial tests he has done with the team and we’re really looking forward to seeing him race in 2016.”
Jamin, from Rouen, France, declared: "I’m very happy and proud to stay in the Cape family for my 2016 season and have the opportunity to race in the Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires.
“This team is seriously amazing… I'm very honored to be a Mazda scholarship driver, and this is a lifetime opportunity for me. We'll be 100-percent dedicated this year to bring the Soul Red Pro Mazda car in victory lane, as my only goal is to win this championship and race Indy Lights in 2017.”
