Meanwhile, Cape Motorsports is gearing up for its sophomore campaign in the series, building on the experience of running two part-time entries last year.
Dominic Cape, President of Cape Motorsports, expressed his enthusiasm about the alliance. "Both Nicholas and I are thrilled to be forming an alliance with Andretti Global," he said. The partnership, according to Cape, is not just about combining forces but also about aligning with a team that has a remarkable racing pedigree. The shared commitment to victories, driver development, and unwavering dedication to the sport forms the bedrock of this new venture.
J-F Thormann, representing Andretti, echoed these sentiments. "We’ve known Dominic and Nicholas Cape for years through junior formulas and have always been impressed by their performance," he remarked. Andretti's admiration for Cape Motorsports' achievements underscores the mutual respect that forms the foundation of this partnership. Thormann emphasized that uniting to bring two cars to the grid demonstrates a commitment to maintaining strength in the sport and dedication to nurturing future driving talents.
This technical partnership between Andretti Global and Cape Motorsports is more than a mere alliance; it's a strategic move that promises to reshape the landscape of the Indy Nxt series. It exemplifies how collaboration and shared goals can create a formidable force in motorsports. With Andretti's proven track record and Cape's rising prowess, this partnership is poised to set new benchmarks in the racing arena.
