EXCLUSIVE AUTOSPORT CONFIRMS CZACZYK FOR FORMULA TOUR 1600 EFFORT



 
SASKATOON, SK (April 13, 2017) – Exclusive Autosport kicked off their 2017 season at the opening round of the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda in St. Petersburg in mid-March, delivering an impressive debut performance in the series.  The second round of the program will take place in Alabama next weekend (April 21-23) but, in the meantime, the operation is working non-stop, having begun the construction of their driver line-up for the Quebec-based Formula Tour 1600 series.  The first confirmation for the team’s fleet of Spectrum F1600 race cars is American Konrad Czaczyk. The 20-year-old has been racing for seven years, including four seasons of national level karting competition, and finished second in the 2016 F4 US Championship series. The program will take the young driver to marquee events like the Canadian Grand Prix and the Grand Prix Trois-Rivières.

“Konrad is a welcomed edition to our F1600 program,” offered Michael Duncalfe, EA Team Owner. “His experience in both karts, as well as cars, will help with a smooth transition to the Spectrum F1600 Honda.  I have no doubt he will be challenging for wins right away with Exclusive Autosport." 

The Formula Tour 1600 Championship consists of 18 races held over six events, including prestigious races as part of the F1 Grand Prix of Canada and the Grand Prix Trois-Rivières. The series also visits the famed Le Circuit Mont Tremblant in Quebec and Calabogie Motorsports Park in Eastern Ontario. These incredible venues and events will challenge Czaczyk to rise to the occasion in front of big crowds, running on world-class layouts. Exclusive Autosport will give him the same tools they provided their past championship-winning drivers.

Czaczyk comes to the program with an impressive developmental resume. Upon the completion of his karting career, Konrad competed in the Skip Barber Karts to Cars Shootout in 2014 and finished third.  He used this experience to campaign the 2014-2015 Skip Barber Winter Series, finishing third overall on the strength of three wins and eight podiums.  He would go on to finish second in the Skip Barber Championship Shootout in 2015 before entering the F4 US Championship last season. Czaczyk scored three wins in F4 competition, sweeping the opening weekend at Mid-Ohio.

“Joining Exclusive Autosport for this year's Formula Tour 1600 Championship is a huge honor,” commented Czaczyk. “I was contacted by Michael Duncalfe during the off-season, and was offered an opportunity to build on the incredible success that his team has found in this Canadian championship. I'm excited to get behind the wheel of these cars, and to drive on some of the most breathtaking and historic tracks in the world. I'm sure the competition will be good, and I'm looking forward to developing my skills with such an experienced team like Exclusive Autosports behind me this year.”

Exclusive Autosport took the Formula Tour F1600 championship in 2016 with American driver Trenton Estep, winning 12 of the 17 races that he contested. They also won both the Formula Tour F1600 Pro and Masters titles in 2013 and 2014.

Exclusive Autosport is thrilled to be able to partner with great companies, such as AERO™ Advanced Paint Technology (www.rethinkpaint.com), which is used on all their race cars.
