The Young pilot got to Elkahart Lake with two Top 10 finishes and will continue working hard to maintain his great campaign
Two Top10 finishes in two races. Two different challenges. The first one in the mixed circuit of the legendary race track of Indianapolis. The second, in the oval of Lucas Oil. As a beginner in his first season of the USF2000, an entry level category that leads to the mais IndyCar Series, Lucas Kohl was able to get excellent results as a rookie, earning a sixth place and a tenth place.
In this upcoming weekend, June 24th to 26th, the young driver from Santa Cruz do Sul will face yet another challenge. Lucas will race in the Road America circuit, near Elkhart Lake, which will be the 5th stage of the Series.
The circuit, with a length of 6515 meters and 14 turns, is one of the most selective of the country. The track poses many challenges to the pilots, as it is relatively long, has many curves of all types, ascents and descents, and passing points. In other words, it is the complete package, which will host races of all of the Indy categories, including F-Indy, Indy Lights and USF2000.
According to Lucas Kohl, he is “very happy to able to race at Road America. It is a track that permits to exploit the limits of the cars. In addition, as it is a mixed circuit with many challenges, I believe I’ll be able to quickly adapt and take advantage of it. My goal is to keep this trend of good results I’ve been having.”
The calendar at Road America starts on Thursday, 23, with the first free practice run of the USF2000 scheduled to start at 13h30 (GMT). The second test takes place at 17:15 – every practice is half-hour long. On Friday, 24, the category will be back on track for the qualifying runs, at 12:15. On Saturday, the first race is scheduled to start at 10:00 am, with the second starting at 15:10, each lasting 40 minutes.
