    Windsor’s race car driver Olivier Cote finished with a strong second podium position at the 2013 Skip Barber Shootout which was held from November 4th to 6th at the Sebring International Raceway in Florida.

    With a 3 points lead after the second day, the pressure was high in the last race Wednesday where 21 of the best young drivers from around world were competing at well over 100 mph in Formula Mazda cars to win precious scholarships and pursue their professional racing career.

    At only 20 years old, Olivier intends to use the second place scholarship of $15,000 along with sponsorship support to compete in Skip Barber’s “Mazda Road to Indy” winter series which starts November 14 in Atlanta with a goal to win the series and get a scholarship for USF2000.

    This year’s result add another chapter to his young but promising racing career.
