MINNEAPOLIS – A familiar face will again be under the JDC MotorSports’ awning in 2013, as Juan Piedrahita rejoins the multiple championship-winning team for the 2013 edition of the Pro Mazda Championship.
The Colombian, with a season of series success now under his belt, is focused on challenging for wins and a fourth championship crown for the Minnesota-based squad.
After another race-winning campaign in the Pro Mazda Championship (formerly the Star Mazda Championship) last year, JDC MotorSports is keen to continue that trend and go after the series title in 2013.
With Piedrahita rejoining the team for a second consecutive season of series action, the squad is poised to do just that. Given the up-and-coming 20 year-old stood on the podium twice, and was a regular front-runner en route to seventh in the championship chase in 2012, when combined with JDC’s proven track record in both the Pro Mazda Championship and junior formula car racing as a whole, many believe the stage is set for Piedrahita to be a title contender right from the waving of the first green flag.
“We are very excited to continue our relationship with Juan into the 2013 season,” said team principal John Church. “This will mark the third year that Juan has driven one of the Black and Blue cars, and we fully expect to be competing for the championship in 2013. Juan brings an enormous amount of talent and a great attitude.”
“It’s great to be back with JDC MotorSports for the 2013 season,” said Piedrahita. “I’m very grateful for this opportunity, and for sure plan on fighting for wins and the championship. I want to thank John, and the whole team, for giving me a second year in the Pro Mazda series, and to my long-term sponsors which have supported my career from the beginning. I’m ready to go and fight for wins.”
