Just days after officially announcing its return to the F3 Americas Championship Powered by Honda, Global Racing Group re-signed Argentinian Baltazar Leguizamon, a two-race winner and 2018 F3 Americas series runnerup, to a full season. The South American native returns to the multi-platform team determined to become the first international driver to claim the F3 Americas title.
“I am very excited to join Global Racing Group for another season. We were strong last season, and with the improvements we’ve made in the off-season, I know we can win the championship this year. My goal is to be the first international champion of the series,” Leguizamon said.
“I’m thankful for my team, trainer, boss, sponsors, family, Honda, Ligier, Hankook and SCCA Pro Racing who helped make this season possible.”
“The entire Global Racing Group team is excited to welcome Baltazar back for another season,” said GRG team principal Christian Pedersen. “In 2018, he showed what champions are made of, demonstrating passion, perseverance and hard work. He will surely be in strong contention for the title this year, and we can’t wait to get to Barber.”
Global Racing Group has expanded its F3 Americas roster to four entries for the upcoming season. In the off-season, the team established a pathway to Europe through a new foothold partnership with the UK-based Douglas Motorsport, filtering F3 Americas graduates on to the next level of open-wheel competition in Europe.
The 17-race F3 Americas season kicks-off April 5-7 at Barber Motorsports Park, supporting the IndyCar Series at the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama.
