Ace karter signs for new USF2000 team
Exclusive Autosport, the Canadian team which has already hired Parker Thompson and Luke Gabin, has announced a third entry for rising star Dev Gore.
Gore, the 19-year-old who last year won karting’s prestigious US Open and US Rotax titles, will drive the #92 Exclusive Autosport Tatuus USF-17 Mazda. After earning one of the two spots in the Mazda Road To Indy MaxSpeed Driver Advancement program last year, he tested a USF2000 car at last October’s Chris Griffis Memorial Test on the Indianapolis road course.
Exclusive’s president and CEO, Michael Duncalfe commented: “I am very excited about working with Dev. He has an impressive karting résumé and immense racecraft. He is a welcomed addition to our team. He will no doubt be a contender for Rookie of the Year and challenging up front.”
Gore, who hails from Atlanta, Ga., stated: “2017 is going to be an interesting year in USF2000,” referring to the debut of the series’ new spec car. “This was such a last minute deal, so I am happy to be able to get onboard with a team as stacked as Exclusive Autosport. I believe that I will have the best support between my two teammates and crew.
“Michael Duncalfe has pulled out all the stops in securing the best mechanics, engineers and crew chief. I also have two of the strongest teammates that I could ask for working together for the benefit of our program. I am extremely confident in both Parker and Luke to work together with Jay Green [crew chief], the engineers and myself in order to come home with race wins and strong results.
“I am looking forward to a very strong year.”
