News and Views on Drivers Chasing Open-Wheel Stardom

Video of the Day

For those that have been waiting to see 15-year-old Zach Veach behind-the-wheel of an Atlantic Championship racecar, here is your chance.

The following video features onboard footage of Zach Veach testing with Jensen Motorsport.

I’m not sure how recent this footage is, or what the conditions were like during the test… so it’s difficult to provide much insight into his driving technique.  He does a nice job looking through the turns and keeping his eyes ahead of the car.  I would say that he appears a bit reserved (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing during a test day).  He’s lacking entry and mid-corner speed but seems to be adapting to the power of the car quite nicely on exit.  The ability to carry more momentum into– and through— the corner will come with additional seat time.   I’m looking forward to watching more footage and keeping an eye on his progress this season.

    Ryan, forgive my ignorance – what track is this that Zach is on?

    Don’t feel bad, I was wondering the same thing. I sent an email out looking for an answer but have yet to receive a response.

    I will post as soon as I have an answer for you. If anyone else recognizes the track, feel free to chime in.
