Last racing weekend at Sonoma Raceway in California marked the end of the 2014 racing season for me.
It’s been a strangely short one, with most racing series I’ve been running in the past only having a season finale somewhere in the middle of October. Nonetheless, the compressed calendar was really exciting, with a lot of non-stop action, racing almost every month at least once apart from June, during which we had a two day collective test at Mid-Ohio to guarantee my monthly adrenaline rush!
Jeroen Slaghekke has again shown what he is capable of. After a fourth place finish in the support series race for the Indy 500, the Dutch driver was a constant factor at the front during two days of official collective testing at the Mid-Ohio circuit. At the challenging 2.4 mile circuit, the only Dutchman on the Road to Indy ladder topped the times twice and was never outside the top 4 in any session.
Dutch racing driver Jeroen Slaghekke has managed to surprise by first qualifying in 3rd place and going on to finish 4th after a tough start to his season. This is his best result in his USF2000 season so far for the young driver.
it’s been a while since I’ve last written a blog and a lot has happened in the mean time! First of all, as most of you might have noticed, I’ve succeeded in raising the funds to pursue my goals and go racing this year!
After starting the season with Afterburner Autosport, I’m now racing with Belardi Auto Racing piloting the number 44 car! It’s fair to say that the start of my season was definitely not what I was striving for. However, the season is still very long and I feel like I’m moving in the right direction now!
After not really being at the front for various reasons in the opening weekends, I was fastest overall in collective testing at the Lucas Oil Raceway oval this week!
