The reigning Star Mazda Rookie of the Year Connor De Phillippi has decided to return to the series for another year of development and a shot at the outright title. He was signed earlier this week by Series’ newcomers Team Pelfrey.

The highly-touted 18-year-old finished third in his rookie campaign with one win, three podiums and eight top-five finishes while driving for JDC MotorSports.

This season, the young American will pilot the No. 11 Pelfrey Star Mazda machine. He joins another talented up-and-comer Nick Andries, 20, who was signed early last month.

Team owner Dale Pelfrey and team manager Geoff Fickling already have a great line-up heading into the 2011 season. It will be interesting to see if they add another addition before the season kicks off March 26-27 at St. Petersburg.
