After announcing their intention to run in the  Star Mazda series, Team Apex has been busy preparing for the new venture.

Jorge Goncalvez, a Star Mazda regular, signed with the team this week to drive in the 2009-2010 Star Mazda Winter Series.  The first event is scheduled for November 7, 2009 at Infineon Raceway.  There will likely be a few drivers using the Winter Series to prepare for the 2010 Star Mazda Championship.  Stay tuned for more updates.

In other Team Apex news, Formula BMW-Americas driver Joao Horto recently tested the team’s Star Mazda car at Putnam Park.

Team Apex hasn’t announced any official commits for the 2010 Star Mazda season, but you’d have to imagine that both Jorge Goncalvez and Joao Horto are likely candidates.  Both drivers have a history with the team via Formula BMW.  Goncalvez, who spent the 2009 Star Mazda season with AIM Autosport, drove for Team Apex last year in Formula BMW.
