Hauppauge, NY – The F2000 Championship Series and F1600 Formula F Championship Series reached out to the greater racing community in the greater New York City area by exhibiting at the Technology Racing Service convention on February 4.
The convention brought together an assortment of racing-related businesses, most from the greater New York City area, and was held at Wehrmann Engineering.
F2000 and F1600 officials were onhand to answer questions along with Series marketing materials and various literature.
"It was good to touch base with some of our Series drivers from F2000 including Charles Finelli, Chris Burke and Brenden Puderbach,” commented Robert Wright, Series partner. “I also got a chance to talk to some new (to us) drivers and entrants who will be contesting the F1600 Series this year, including Mike Scanlon and Art Foster. It’s always fun to talk racing in the off-season when it’s freezing rain and 33 degrees outside. The Wehrmann Engineering shop was wonderful and their car collection spectacular."
Saturday and Sunday of the convention weekend featured data-system seminars with a variety of speakers, including Bob Knox from Alegra Motorsports and Tom Remedios from Cosworth Electronics.
