Tampa, FL April 8, 2019 – Team Pelfrey confirms Ayrton Ori will return to the F1600 series for the 2019 season in the Spray Nine/Team Pelfrey Mygale.
Ori and Team Pelfrey are known to have great on-track chemistry as Ori completed the second half of the 2018 season with the team. Now looking to build upon that relationship as the season opener nears, the 14-year-old has gained confidence and momentum during preseason testing and competition.
“Welcoming Ayrton back to Team Pelfrey is fantastic news,” commented Team Principal, Geoff Bushor. “He’s fast and eager to do well. We all know what he is capable of, and in what will no doubt be one of the most competitive seasons in recent F1600 history, we’re up for the fight."
Ori will pilot the No. 27 yellow Spray Nine/Team Pelfrey Honda alongside teammates Dexter Czuba, Josh Green, and Tyler O’Connor.
“I’m extremely grateful to Geoff and everyone at Team Pelfrey for this opportunity, and while we’re going into the season with several goals, we are absolutely here to run for the F1600 championship and the SCCA Runoffs. You can follow our adventure on Instagram at @ayrtonoriracing.”
“I also want to thank my sponsors, Spray Nine, Permatex, The Human Growth Foundation, Fliiip.com, Poya Tech, Alpinestars and Bell Racing Helmets. Spray Nine and Permatex have been incredible partners and I look forward to bringing them a very strong return on their investment in me.”
Look for Ayrton Ori and Josh Green on April 19-20 at the Formula Race Promotions Season opener at Road Atlanta.
