News and Views on Drivers Chasing Open-Wheel Stardom

Not to be forgotten, the F1600 and F2000 Championship Series were both in action last weekend at Mid-Ohio.


There really isn’t much more to say than: Wyatt Gooden. The 22-year-old driver made his debut in the series this past weekend in commanding fashion. He earned the pole position in the first qualifying session and later went on to sweep both races despite some serious opposition from the incredibly-quick Mitch Martin — who, ironically, was also making his debut in the F1600 F Championship Series.

The Series returns to action this fall with a race at Lime Rock Park on Sept. 16-17.


The F2000 Championship Series saw a weekend split between Chris Livengood — who won his first-career F2000 event at Mid-Ohio last season — and Kyle Connery — the driver who swept the competition at Road Atlanta in early May. Brian Tomasi and Robert LaRocca both had a fairly strong weekend as well against a stout field.

The F2000 drivers will hit the track again July 22-24 for a high-speed battle at Mosport where Canadian — and current championship leader — Remy Audette will try to distance himself from the pack on home soil.
