Tomaselli Joins Team Pelfry for 2018

By  | 

The Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda grid continues to grow ahead of the new season as Team Pelfry has signed Bruna Tomaselli for the 2018 campaign.

“I am very excited to welcome Bruna to Team Pelfrey,” noted Team Pelfrey General Manager Jonny Baker. “We have been talking for a while, and the more and more we spoke it became apparent that not only will Bruna be a good fit with Team Pelfrey, but we will also provide a positive environment and infrastructure that will allow her to flourish in her sophomore season. We have plenty of track time between now and St. Petersburg and I can’t wait to see what the season has in store for us as a partnership.”

In 11 USF2000 events last year, Tomaselli scored a second-best 12th-place finish at Road America. She made her move to the first step of the Mazda Road to Indy following five podiums and 18 top-10’s in 20 Formula 4 Championship events in 2016.

“During my rookie season, I learned a lot and this year I’ve aligned myself with Team Pelfrey, which is a team of great tradition on the Mazda Road to Indy with an excellent structure,” commented Tomaselli. “As a team, I believe we will be competitive and we’ll do our best to always be fighting for the podium.”
