Zach Veach is poised to become the youngest driver in the 37-year history of the Atlantic Championship as he signed with Jensen Motorsport earlier today at a mere 15 years of age to compete in the 2010 Atlantic Championship. The contract is a two-year deal.
Originally, he was planning an assault on the Formula BMW-Americas in 2010, but, after the program folded, he decided to pursue other options. He spent the 2009 season testing a Formula BMW car and karting.
Personally, I haven’t seen Veach drive so I don’t have much to offer here… but the fact that he’s essentially going from karting straight to the Atlantic Championship is mind-boggling. It sort of brings me back to my post earlier today about drivers being rushed into cars.
