Exclusive Autosport Signs Jack Mitchell Jr For Quebec Formula Tour Championship

Mitchell Jr., of Clarendon Hills, Illinois, will be piloting one of the teams Spectrum Formula F chassis with Honda HPD power plant in the 2013 Formula Tour 1600 Championship (based in Quebec, Canada).

Jack has been working with his driver coach/manager and Exclusive Management Inc. CEO / Exclusive Autosport Team Owner, Michael Duncalfe, for the past two and a half years. Last year alone he recorded 18 podiums in 20 races and was the vice champion in the Skip Barber Summer Series. He was named the 2012 Toyo Tires Formula 1600 Rookie of the Year (1 win, 6 podiums) as well as one of the prestigious Team USA Scholarship recipients. He finished 10th at the Walter Hayes Trophy and 5th at the British Formula Ford Festival of Racing. Because of his success last year, he had a number of options presented to him to race in both the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Power by Mazda and the US F1600 championship. However, Jack felt he has “unfinished” business in Canada and is now poised (more than ever) to come back and not only contend but win a Canadian championship.

The Quebec series offers a number of exciting opportunities to be a part of support races at highly prestigious racing events in Canada including F1 Montreal, GP3R (alongside the Mazda Road to Indy) and Canadian Nascar (at Mirable, Quebec). The 12-race, six weekend Formula Tour 1600 Championship Series starts May 24-26 at the Spring Classic at Circuit Mont Tremblant. This is series will allow Jack and his partners to get maximum exposure while allowing Jack to further develop his skills in large grids of 45 cars at certain events.

“I am really looking forward to 2013. I have worked with Michael (Duncalfe) for a number of years. He has played an integral part in my development as a driver and in my career in motorsports,” Mitchell Jr. said. “Having the opportunity to work with Michael for the third year and be a part of his race team is not only exciting, but also an honor. I want nothing more than to bring a championship home for Exclusive Autosport, Exclusive Management Inc., Spectrum and HPD. I believe that this is the right place for me and my career to develop not only my race craft but also my technical knowledge. I hope that my performance in 2013 will allow me to earn a spot with the Team USA Scholarship program once again this year. I would love to return to England (as a Team USA driver), represent the United States at the Formula Ford Festival and Walter Hayes Trophy and build upon my progress last year.”

“I am thrilled to be able to announce Jack as an Exclusive Autosport driver for 2013. He is a very talented driver and one of the hardest working young men I know. When he is not in the car he is studying video, studying data and training physically. All the while he continues to maintain his status on the honor roll with a 4.0 GPA. We have had a lot of success over the past two and a half years together. It would be great to see him further develop his race craft and win his first championship in 2013 with Exclusive Autosport. I believe with his driving abilities, and the program we have put in place for him, he will be a strong contender every race all season long,” said team owner Michael Duncalfe.
