Patrick McKenna has signed with Team GDT for the upcoming 2011 Star Mazda Championship, securing his next step on the ‘Road to Indy.’

He will join team owner J.W. Roberts and Carlos Conde in the GDT camp.

McKenna, 23, will be a great addition to the squad for 2011. Last season, the Irishman finished runner-up to Sage Karam in the USF2000 National Championship with two wins (ORP and NJMP) and eight podiums.

The GDT squad has really done a nice job of compiling a solid group of individuals and McKenna will certainly fit right in. This is a great signing for Roberts and team manager Paul Mata.

This past fall McKenna was awarded his second-consecutive Dunlop Motorsport Ireland Young Driver of the Year Award. Shortly thereafter he completed his first Star Mazda test with Andersen Racing.
