Pilot ONE Racing Drivers in F1600/USA: Learning close racing, standard shifting, mechanical grip, and zero downforce.
Mazda Road to Indy/USF2000: Driver Development at progressively higher levels of Open Wheel Racing, cars with downforce, sequential shifting, spec chassis and engine. Drivers race with the top drivers in the USA at this age level in fields of 23 – 25 cars.
“Pilot ONE Racing has supported me as a young driver talent through my karting career and development in open wheel racing cars. As my longstanding sponsors, I look forward to championing Pilot ONE Racing throughout my driver development years into the Mazda Road to Indy or European Racing.”
In a stepped driver development system, drivers progress to high-downforce cars with higher speeds and cornering forces. Pictured above is Pilot ONE Racing leading the field into turn 1 at Sebring in a Formula Atlantic in January, 2018.
With 1,400 pounds of downforce in a race car equivalent to Indy Lights, drivers rise to levels of high-commitment and 3-4 G turns, 175 mph top speeds, and 300 hp.
Training in the European F3 is essential to prepare drivers for European tracks, racing series, and FIA international championships. Pictured above is driver Kaylen Frederick in the F3 BRDC Italian Tatuus chassis training with Team Carlin in 2017 at Pembrey & Rockingham in England.
