Brantford, Ontario – Britain West Motorsports, Canada’s leading Formula Ford competition group,will take on new challenges this season as they join the many top-flight teams seeking the 2013 F2000 Series Championship title. With two entries already confirmed, long time Britain West Motorsports pilot Sergio Pasian of St. Jean de Arc, Quebec will take the wheel of the RF99 Van Diemen while newcomer Aaron Pettipas of Bedford, Nova Scotia will pilot the RF01 Van Diemen. Building on successful championship winning campaigns in 2011 and 2012, Britain West Motorsports is poised for the next step in their extensive development program.
“We are very excited to have a fulltime, two car program for the F2000 Championship,” comments team principal David Clubine. “Sergio (Pasian) worked hard this past season taking in testing at Mosport and running at Watkins Glen. This has given us a really strong baseline to work from for our cars. We actually have one more car set in F2000 trim we are hoping to add to the program.”
In preparation for the fulltime assault on the 2013 championship, BWM took in the final round of the 2012 season held at Watkins Glen in October. Pasian managed a pair of top ten finishes as the team worked through a series of development components. Along with the addition of the 2.0L effort, BWM will continue to promote and support their championship winning F1600 program.
“It’s important to mention that we are continuing to field F1600 cars this season,” continues Clubine. “We have won the Formula Tour Championship two seasons in a row and we are looking forward to defending that titlewhile continuing to use the F1600 platform to develop the next generation of winning drivers.”
