James Roe Jr. Heads to Circuit of the Americas for First Time This Weekend

Global Racing Group driver aims to end 2020 strong

Entering the final event of the 2020 Formula Regionals (FR) Americas Championship Powered by Honda, James Roe will be aiming for the top step of the podium. Competing with Global Racing Group, Roe will compete at the Circuit of the Americas for the first time and is hoping for some beginner’s luck at the Austin, Texas facility.

“I am really looking forward to getting in the car on Friday at Circuit of the Americas,” expressed James Roe. “It’s a new track for me so that adds an extra element of excitement for

sure. The track looks extremely technical with many sweeping corners and fast sections. It is a shame that we are not competing alongside the Formula One World Championship as part of the United States Grand Prix but once I have the helmet on, it is all about speed and results. We hope to end out the year on a positive note and will be aiming to build momentum towards 2021.”

While Roe does not have any experience at the 3.4-mile Circuit of the Americas, his Global Racing Group team does, and he will rely on that knowledge to ensure success.

Roe continued, “The Global group of drivers work very well together. We have a solid bond and work together for the common goal. It will be no different this weekend as I look to get my CJJ Motorsports entry to the top step of the podium. A huge thank you to all of my partners and supporters as we look to close the season with a win.”

Due to COVID-19, the final weekend of the season will be closed to the public. However, live timing will again be available through Race-Monitor.com or the Race Monitor App all weekend long. All three races this weekend will be streamed live at FANRacing.Live.
