Group-A Racing is happy to announce the signing of young Brazilian talent Gustavo Rizzo for the last two races of the F2000 Championship Series at Summit Point & Watkins Glen International. Gustavo will drive the #21 PGR/Sat Log/GroupAWheels.com Van Diemen Zetec.
Gustavo Rizzo is a young driver from Brazil that competed in the first 5 weekends of the F2000 Championship Series last year as a rookie. He did a very nice job of coming up to speed with unknown tracks and cars to the international driver. With that he was consistently running in the top 10 at tracks he had never seen before.
The season for Gustavo sadly came to an abrupt end last year when he got injured in a crash at the F2000 Championship Series races at Mosport. The injury has kept him out of a car until now when he will get in a Group-A Racing prepared Van Diemen Zetec at Summit Point for the F2000 Championship Series.
“We are really excited to welcome Gustavo to the team. He did a nice job in the car last year and he is a very pleasant person to have around out of the car as well. With our proven expertise in developing younger drivers we are sure we can help him end the season on a great note.”
Group-A Racing has a 1 seat still available for drivers that are interested in participating in the final two double header race weekends in the F2000 Championship Series. Along with that they have testing opportunities for drivers to get there a taste of the F2000 machinery. Interested parties can contact Group-A Racing via (631) 957-3901 or GroupARacing@aol.com.
