    Why they would cancel it after the track improvements were well underway is a mystery to me (and TV Band’s statement suggests the sanction fee had been paid), but then again CART weren’t paid the last time they went to Brazil…

    Ayla Agren, the F1600 series champion last year, will step up to the USF2000 championship remaining with Team Pelfrey. http://usf2000.com/news/team-pelfrey-confirms-three-drivers-for-inaugural-usf2000-campaign

    After placing strongly in national karting championships in Northern Europe (including an ICA junior title), Agren made the decision to pursue a single seater career in the US, culminating in the F1600 Formula Ford championship title two years later.

    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.
