Alex returns to action with a deal to race in the Indy Lights Championship at the highly prestigious Long Beach street race in California on the 15th of April. He returns to action with Brooks Associates Racing – the team he tested with at the official training days at Barber, Alabama with great success.
”I am really looking forward to the opportunity I have got with John and his team. We have gelled really well in testing and I feel we can put on a good show at Long Beach. For me it will be my Indy Lights debut. With the minimal testing we have had I am just going to focus on keeping my head down and working hard with the team to improve each time out on track and build for the future.” said Alex.
Alex’s deal results from a lot of hard work by his family and management team after testing at Barber showed how much potential he has, despite having far less track time compared to his rivals. Alex’s management team will continue working hard to secure his full time return to the cockpit and are seeking partners to ensure this becomes a reality. “We are looking for new business partners to safeguard the drive and provide continuity of support for the remainder of 2012 and beyond to ensure Alex can go on and develop the talent he has clearly demonstrated” said his manager.
But for now the only thing on Alex’s mind is the joy of being able to race at Long Beach.
