ANSA Motorsports is still working on selecting drivers for the 2015 IMSA Cooper Tires Prototype Lites Powered by Mazda series. Last night ANSA Motorsports tested a “Young Gun” from Rouen, France, Nico Jamin, at Palm Beach International Raceway . Having moved to the United States of America last year, Nicolas Jamin already claimed a podium finish during his first appearance in the USF 2000 series, Indycar’s waiting room, during the St Petersburg round. This season he will be entering the series once more, but this time with the title-winning team, ‘CAPE MOTORSPORT with Wayne Taylor Racing’ and will be aiming for the 2015 crown. The USF 2000 is the first step on the ‘Mazda Road to Indy’, a real trampoline to the United States’ top motorsport category. A quick and efficient rise After a promising start in karting in 2010, Nicolas moved to single-seater competition via the Autosport Academy, and F4 in particular, where he finished 7th in his first season. The following year, he caught the attention in Formula Renault 2.0, racing for team ART in the Northern European Cup. In 2014, he decided to turn to the USA and the USF 2000. A more professional entourage Until recently, Nicolas has been mainly assisted by his family, but he will now have the support of the former Formula 1, DTM and 24 Hours of Le Mans driver Eric van de Poele. He will be able to benefit from his top-level experience at each round of the USF 2000. He will also be accompanied by Ugo Meloni, former team manager at a number of major European teams, who will be the intermediary with the team. Finally, Nicolas will be followed full-time by a specialized motorsports communications agency, « XV COM » (Xavier Verbeke Communication), which already works with drivers such as Sébastien Loeb, Anthony Beltoise or Nicolas Marroc. Their work will include press releases, social media, web site, a smartphone application and the organization of PR events. ANSA Motorsports should announce its 2015 Cooper Tires Prototype Lites Powered by Mazda program in February.
