Millville, NJ – The F2000 Championship Series reached out to the karting community this past weekend with a display at the Championship Karting International event at New Jersey Motorsports Park. F2000 officials were present to answer questions along with represents from AcceleRace Motorsports. Additionally, the AcceleRace F2000 transporter and two Van Diemens from the team were on hand in front of a large crowd in New Jersey
“I knew the karting competition would be good, but it’s astounding just how good the top drivers are,” said Robert Wright, F2000 Series co-owner. “We’re watching world class karting here and it is spectacularly good, not just on track but the level of preparation and concentration by the teams is astounding.
“It’s great to have the opportunity to expose the F2000 product to karting competitors. Plus we’re getting a chance to talk to them about career paths and other venues, which is important to the United States racing community,” continued Wright.
The CKI event was well attended, with over ninety entries from all over the world. Saturday and Sunday also attracted a large local contingent of karters, researching their next step on the ultra competitive karting and open-wheel ladder.
AcceleRace, despite having their transporter and both F2000 race cars at New Jersey Motorsports Park, was still able to win the National Class in another F2000 Series over the weekend. Driver Ardie Greenamyer wheeled a vintage 1984 Reynard chassis to an overall top-ten and National Class victory halfway across the country.
The F2000 Championship Series next heads to Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin for rounds 11 and 12 of the 2010 season at Road America.
