Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing has signed USF2000 sophomore Parker Thompson for 2016.

The 17-year-old Canadian, a protégé of 2004 Indy 500 winner Buddy Rice, posted seven top-five finishes on his way to finishing fifth overall in the 2015 championship with JDC Motorsports.

“Parker is a great addition to the team,” said team owners Dominic and Nicholas Cape. “He had a great rookie season, and we know he can win races in 2016. We are excited to have him on the team.”

“I am extremely pleased to be named a Cape Motorsports driver for the 2016 season in USF2000,” added Thompson. “In the past, they have been a dominant force in the Mazda Road to Indy program, and I am looking to carry that reputation into the 2016 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda.

The Cape boys know what they are doing, but what sets them apart is their will to win. Their work ethic off the track is what has granted them so much success on track, and I will be using that philosophy in my 2016 championship campaign.”

Cape Motorsports has produced the last five USF2000 champions – Petri Suvanto, Matthew Brabham, Scott Hargrove, Florian Latorre and Nico Jamin.
