Time for a Friday edition of Linkage.

Formula BMW
In the past I haven’t given Formula BMW Europe a whole lot of attention (at least not on the blog)— strictly due to workload— but with the disappearance of Formula BMW-Americas in 2010…  that may change.  In any case, here is the Formula BMW-Europe 2010 Schedule.

Star Mazda
James Kovacic, who ran in the 2009 Formula BMW-Americas series, was recently awarded the AMSF International Rising Star Award and is currently discussing his options for 2010 with several Star Mazda teams.  The AMSF (Australian Motor Sport Foundation) scholarship wants Kovacic to compete in Star Mazda… so the 16-year-old is planning to drive in next month’s Official Star Mazda test at Sebring International Raceway.

Doug Patterson over at OpenPaddock.net has put together a review of the 2009 Star Mazda season:  Getting Started, The Mid-Season Grind, and the Battle for the Championship.

F2000 Championship
Ralph Firman, who founded Van Diemen, is planning to supply a new chassis to the F2000 Championship in 2010.  The chassis was designed by Firman’s new company RFR (Ralph Firman Racing)… which opened its doors in 2008.
