I decided to take a short break over the holidays this year.  Subsequently, I’m a little behind on some of the latest junior formula news.  It seems like a good time for another edition of Linkage.

Stephanie Wallcraft, of Planet-IRL.com, wrote an interesting piece yesterday on the flaws associated with the ‘Road to Indy program’.  She brings up some valid points but I think it’s important to remember that the creation of an additional ladder system is definitely a step in the right direction.  I’m hopeful that a few of the issues will be sorted out shortly.  If you haven’t already read it, make sure to out-click on the link above and give her story a read.

Sort of old news by now but Radon Sport has introduced a new F2000 car.  Reportedly, several cars have already been sold and  a few teams plan to utilize them in the 2010 F2000 Championship.  USF1’s Ken Anderson was also involved with this project.

Doug Patterson, of OpenPaddock.net, recently completed his 3-part review of the 2009 Indy Lights season.  You can read them here:  Spring Races, Mid-Season Grind and the Battle for the Championship.

Jon Waldock, of The Feeder Series, added a Formula Renault 3.5 Guide to his site.  It’s a pretty basic summary but a worthy read for those interested in the World Series by Renault.

Brian Stewart Racing is planning to return to the Indy Lights series full-time in 2010.  The team is also planning to field an entry in the USF2000 National Championship.  The team linked to my Indy Lights quiz , so posting some news on their upcoming racing season is the least I can do.  Glad you enjoyed the quiz Brian.

My Spanish is very limited, but it sounds like Pablo Donoso has decided to retire from racing.  Try Google Translation.
