Belardi Auto Racing inks Anders Krohn for 2011

Anders Krohn

Anders Krohn has signed with Belardi Auto Racing for the 2011 Indy Lights season. The 23-year-old Norwegian driver made his Indy Lights debut in 2010 at Watkins Glen International driving for Andersen Racing (watch onboard footage here). Krohn was running as high as fourth before a damaged gearbox relegated him to 10th at the checkered flag. Prior to his debut, he tested with Andersen Racing at Putnam Park and Sam Schmidt Motorsports at Kentucky in October 2008.

Krohn wrapped up his sophomore season in the Star Mazda Championship by finishing inside the top-five in 12-of-13 events, including five podiums, en route to second place in the 2010 drivers’ championship.

It will be great to see Krohn make the jump to Indy Lights full-time in 2011. The partnership with Brian Belardi and Belardi Auto Racing should be a good fit. I fully expect to see this talented driver improving every time he gets behind-the-wheel.

“It is an absolute honor to be part of Belardi Auto Racing as they step into Firestone Indy Lights,” Krohn said. “I know what these guys are capable of having already worked and established relationships with several guys on the team. To me, it’s not like I’m coming into a new team. Brian Belardi has put a lot of faith in me, and I intend to repay that faith with results.”

    I’m very happy to see Anders get a ride in FIL, and its good to see a new team come to the series since we’re not going to be seeing the Andersen cars in 2011. Being a new team to the series, I don’t expect him to be running up front every race in spite of his talent, but perhaps we’ll see him up there once or twice.
