LEXINGTON, Ohio – Turn 3 Motorsport will make its debut in the Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires this weekend at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course with driver Antoine Comeau.
The rookie team is led by Peter Dempsey, a nine time race winner and previous vice champion of the Star Mazda (now known as Indy Pro 2000) Championship.
In addition to competing in the Road to Indy, Dempsey has worked as a driver coach and engineer across the ladder series over the past several years. Working alongside Dempsey at T3M is Emanuel Talquenca who has been a part of the ladder series for many seasons as a mechanic, crew chief, and engineer. The pair have worked together previously to achieve multiple race wins and championship titles in the Indy Pro 2000 Championship, bringing multilevel skills and experience to the team’s new venture.
“It’s great to be back to being a part of the Road to Indy ladder,” said Team Owner Peter Dempsey. “Antoine (Comeau) has been working really hard over the past year to adapt to the Indy Pro 2000 car. We had a very successful test here at Mid-Ohio a few weeks ago, and I’m really looking forward to using that as a platform to keep improving throughout the weekend.”
“Antoine has done a fantastic job in the Radical Cup this year,” continued Dempsey. “Joining the Indy Pro 2000 series presents a new challenge for him. We are looking to build on this weekend and finish out the rest of the 2019 season with the goal of competing in a full season campaign in 2020.”
Comeau, a Radical Cup North America champion and the current series points leader, has been testing the Tatuus PM-18 over the past several months in preparation for his entry into the Indy Pro 2000 Championship.
