Tristan Vautier has signed with JDC MotorSports for the upcoming 2011 Star Mazda Championship.
Last season, as a rookie, the Frenchman finished fifth in the drivers’ championship with two wins (Sebring and NJMP), three podiums and nine top-10 finishes while driving for Andersen Racing.
This is a good signing for JDC. The talented 21-year-old Vautier will look to win the championship in 2011 and if he gels with the team — which I’m sure he will — that goal is anything but out of reach. I was very impressed by Tristan last year so I have relatively high expectations for 2011.
