    Weiron Tan has signed with Andretti Autosport’s Pro Mazda team for 2015: http://www.motorsport.com/pro-mazda/news/weiron-tan-to-drive-for-andretti-autosport-in-pro-mazda

    “My agent did a good job getting in touch with Andretti. We’ve come a long way from Europe, and we saw an opportunity and just took it. We think that the opportunity in the states where there’s a level you can climb for drivers to move up to Indycar, there’s a system that works, so we think that this is a really big opportunity for us to come here and do this,” Tan said.

    Tan was also very complimenting of how the Pro Mazda car drove compared to the F3 car.

    “I actually prefer this car compared to the Formula 3 car, surprisingly. This car feels faster, it feels more free, it doesn’t feel over-aeroed like the Formula 3 cars. It feels really good to drive”

    Stoneman doesn’t have the money for GP2, and he did test an Indy Lights car in 2012 so he was open to a US switch a while ago. I think his health problems would have scared away any F1 junior programs regardless. Indycar teams aren’t obsessed with chasing teenage prodigies and prefer maturity\experience…

    Tuscher is still very young, and being from Switzerland, finding money may be less of an issue. Lynn doesn’t really need RBR’s help, he’s got independent backing that would carry him up the ladder, much like Zamparelli.

    Double points for the Indy 500 is fine, its the marquee race. Sonoma doesn’t need it, the title chase would go there anyway based on the competitiveness of the series recently.

    Keith, this thread has vanished from the forum since you renamed it…

    Guess who’s looking towards Indycar now? Dean Stoneman: http://www.racer.com/indycar/item/111413-indycar-gp3-runner-up-dean-stoneman-targets-open-wheel-switch

    Interesting times.

    That’s the problem with racing in Europe. It’s about the size of your chequebook most of the time.
