LOS GATOS, Calif. – Neil Alberico will once again be part of the renowned Mazda Road to Indy program in 2014, competing in the Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires.
The Californian will be a part of Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing’s new efforts in the prestigious junior formula car championship, reuniting with the team after finishing second in the 2013 USF2000 Championship title fight.
The highly-regarded American racer will take another step towards reaching the IndyCar Series in 2014 as he advances up to the Pro Mazda Championship. Driving for multiple junior formula car champion Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing, Alberico will battle for top honors in the second rung of the Mazda Road to Indy ladder.
“I am very excited to be a part of this exciting new venture with Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing,” stated Alberico. “I think keeping the entire team together is a huge advantage as a rookie going into this year’s Pro Mazda season. Big thanks the Capes brothers for making it all happen. It should be another fun year of racing with the boys.”
Alberico’s quest for Pro Mazda glory will feature a familiar cast supporting the 21 year-old racer, as for a second consecutive year he will run under the Cape Motorsports banner. The Florida-based squad joins Alberico in making the move up the Mazda Road to Indy ladder, adding a Pro Mazda program to its highly-successful championship-winning efforts in the USF2000 Championship and F1600 Formula F Championship Series.
“We view this as a natural progression for the team,” said team owners Dominic and Nicholas Cape. “We believe in the Road to Indy program, and we are excited to be competing in Pro Mazda. Neil is a great driver, and we couldn’t be happier to continue to work with him and help him develop his skills.”
