I tweeted the news earlier this week, but missed posting it; Canadian karting standout Jesse Lazare will join Brian Graham Racing Team Grote in the Toyo Tires F1600 Championship, beginning this weekend June 23-24 at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
Lazare, who recently completed a pair of successful test days with the squad at Shannonville Motorsports Park, will drive the No. 21 Piper DF5/Honda car. He will partner Jack Mitchell Jr. who’s had a great start to his F1600 season, despite a few setbacks. Watch for even more progress as the two teammates begin to work together and push one another.
