OKLAHOMA CITY – F1600 Formula F Championship Series participants will have a chance to test themselves against one of IndyCar’s most promising young drivers next weekend at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, as Tristan Vautier joins the series for a one-off appearance aboard a Quantum Racing Services Van Diemen Honda.

Amazingly Vautier, who won the Firestone Indy Lights title in 2012 and other ladder series titles in previous seasons, has never raced at Mid-Ohio. Taking part in the July 26-28 F1600 race weekend at Mid-Ohio will provide the 23-year-old Frenchman with a chance to learn the track prior to taking the wheel of his Honda-powered Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Dallara one week later at the IZOD IndyCar Series race weekend.

“Formula F is going to be a lot of fun, for me and I hope also for the other competitors in the series,” Vautier said. “It has been a little while since I have driven a small formula car, and I have never raced anything at all at Mid-Ohio! But I know the Quantum team has had great success in the series and at Mid-Ohio, so I’m really looking forward to joining them. I have followed the series this year, and I think it will be exciting and enjoyable to compete in it alongside the F1600 Formula F Championship Series racers.”
