Defending champs Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing today announced it has signed Dutch driver Jeroen Slaghekke to its already-stacked USF2000 roster (Neil Alberico, Scott Hargrove, and James Fletcher).

Slaghekke will drive the No. 32 machine in the 2013 USF2000 National Championship. The 20-year-old driver finished runner-up in the 2011 British Formula Ford Championship with 15 podiums, including three wins (five pole positions). Last season, he graduated to the Formula Renault NEC where he finished fourth with one win and two podiums. He finished 11 races inside the top 10.

Slaghekke is another solid find for Cape/WTR and should be fun to watch this season.
