Big USF2000 weekend for van der Watt
Cape Town racer Julian van der Watt intends to continue his resurgence of form in the US Formula 2000 championship when the series visits the twisty and undulating 13-turn 4km Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the sixth round of the championship in a three race weekend 27-29 July.
“I can’t wait for this one!” Cape Town driver Julian admitted.”Our luck ran our way last time out — well mostly and I had a great race from the back to end up fifth after avoiding the chaos on the opening lap — so let’s hope this roll can now continue and I can fight up front. “We had a good test at Mid Ohio last week where I concentrated on race set-up – it’s a typical American road course as they call them – a track like I’m used to so the first trick is to avoid any trouble and then worry about a good position.
It’s a full weekend with three races over the weekend rather than the usual two — we start with practice on Thursday, the first race is 22h30 SA time Friday, race 2 is 18h35 Saturday and the final is 18h10 Sunday.”
