Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing has come to an agreement with 15 year-old Henrik Furuseth to compete in the National class of the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship powered by Mazda.

Furuseth, who hails from Norway, quickly set his sights on racing in North America following an impressive test with Cape Motorsports last September. In joining with Cape Motorsports, the talented teenager partners with a squad with a long history of producing superstars in racing. The Florida-based team, which won the USF2000 championship last year, is now focused on not only defending its Championship class title, but also adding the National class (for Zetec-powered F2000 cars and Formula Enterprises cars) crown to it's trophy case in their first foray into the class. In pursuit of this goal, team owner Dominic Cape is happy to have secured Norwegian Furuseth for the upcoming season.

“We are extremely excited to have Henrik as part of our assault on the USF2000 Championships,” commented Cape. “Henrik tested with us in 2012 as part of ABK, and was on the pace immediately. The National class utilizing the SCCA FE car and regulations is the perfect platform for the young guns of tomorrow to learn their trade on the first rung of the Mazda Road to Indy ladder.”

Furuseth enters the 2012 USF2000 season coming off a championship-winning season, having dominated the Norwegian Formula Basic Championship. Thanks to a scholarship from the Norwegian Auto Sport Association, he was able to fly stateside to learn more about the Mazda Road to Indy, test a USF2000 car, and take part in a training camp put on by ABK Sports Management. He is now part of the ABK program, which is co-owned by fellow Norwegian and Mazda Road to Indy graduate, Anders Krohn. Furuseth is excited about the opportunity at hand, but knows that staying humble will be a key to his first season of pro racing.

“I am so grateful for this opportunity, and will do my very best to make this a successful season with Cape Motorsports,” said Furuseth. “This is my dream come true.”

The first two races of the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship powered by Mazda will be held at Sebring International Raceway on March 15 & 16. Just a week later, Furuseth will be making his street circuit debut in the form of the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
