Chinese Driver Racing Indy Lights In Baltimore

INDIANAPOLIS – Brooks Associates Racing will rejoin Firestone Indy Lights, fielding its No. 8 car for Hong Kong driver Adderly Fong in this weekend’s Grand Prix of Baltimore.

Fong, a veteran of British Formula 3, Auto GP and sports car racing, will make his U.S. racing debut with the team in hopes of racing in Firestone Indy Lights full time in 2013.

“My team and I remain dedicated to helping drivers compete in the U.S. and I’m thrilled that Adderly has joined us for this race,” said team owner John Brooks. “He did really well in the test, and is a strong competitor for the series.”

Fong will be paired with veteran engineer Lee Dykstra, who has worked with drivers such as Raphael Matos, James Davison and James Hinchcliffe.

Brooks’ team has raced a limited campaign in 2012, fielding a car for England’s Alex Jones at Long Beach. But Brooks hopes to maintain his team’s presence in the series to provide opportunities for drivers chasing their dreams of becoming an IZOD IndyCar Series driver.

“At the end of the day, we have always been in the racing industry for the long haul, and we look forward to a competitive race this weekend,” Brooks said. “I love what I do and our track record – literally – speaks for itself. My drivers have gone on to do well in the larger series – Andreas Wirth, Ronnie Bremer, etc. – and we do this to make that difference in their careers.”
