Turn 3 Motorsport announced on Thursday that they have signed 19 year old Irish driver Adam Fitzgerald to compete for them in the 2024 USF Pro 2000 championship presented by Continental Tires.
The Galway native will make his American racing debut at the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg presented by RP Funding which takes place from March 8-10.
Speaking about the news, Fitzgerald said:
I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be racing in the States next year with Turn 3 Motorsport, a team that’s proven to be very strong throughout their years in the championship. “I’m aware of the challenges that come with making the step from Europe to America, but I believe I’ve got great people in my corner, and I couldn’t be more excited to get started. Most of all, I’m grateful for the opportunity and the ability to continue racing and to chase my goals in this sport!”
Fitzgerald joins fellow Irishman James Roe Jr who has also raced for Turn 3 in the U.S but now competes for Andretti Global in INDY NXT presented by Firestone Tires.
Speaking about today’s news Turn 3 Motorsport team owner Peter Dempsey said:
It’s fantastic to have Adam join our team. “I’ve followed Adam’s career in F4 and FRECA over the past couple of years, and I’m confident we can give him the tools to keep developing his skills and be competitive in the USF Pro 2000 Championship. Being an Irish owned team, it’s important to me to have an Irish driver on our team to keep representing the young talent coming out of our country. We are excited to get going with four days of testing at Sebring and NOLA next week and are looking forward to seeing what we can do with the challenge of the new Continental tires.”
