The F2000 Championship released some big news this morning that GTP Motorsports will be fielding five cars in 2010.  They are hoping to enter 7-to-8 entries at their home track; Lime Rock Park.

Alexander Rossi, who recently committed to a season in GP3 with ART, will replace Diego Nunes at Meritus for the remaining GP2-Asia events.

Terrick Mansur, 20, recently tested a F2000 car at Sebring International Raceway with Liberty Motorsports and hopes to return to racing full-time in 2010 via the USF2000 National Championship.

Mike Foschi has teamed up with the Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation and will donate every penny earned from his Foschi University sales to the SSPF.  On the Foschi U website, Mike (the Dean of Foschi U) states, “I ain’t keepin’ crap“.  He is referring to the sales he makes on Foschi U apparel.  This is a pretty classy move and it’s great to see people supporting the Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation.

The FAZZT Race Team is working on putting together a driver development program and recently signed Maryeve Dufault.  The 27-year-old Canadian driver is a bit of a surprise pick for the program, but it’s great to see more teams stepping up to the plate to help develop drivers.

Charles Anti (former Star Mazda competitor) is working on putting together a F2000 program for up-and-coming drivers.  The team will run under the AntiSpeed Competition Inc. logo if they are able to come up with the necessary funding. It’s likely that Anti will return to the cockpit as well.
