English driver primed to fight for wins and title in rookie Road to Indy season
SASKATOON, SK (January 21, 2022) – Exclusive Autosport is extremely excited to announce England’s Louis Foster as the team’s first Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires driver for the 2022 schedule. Foster will enter his rookie season in the Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires, hitting the track in the #90 Tatuus IP-22. The 18-year-old has competed in numerous British series in recent years, where he has stacked up several wins. Foster also tested with Exclusive Autosport at the Chris Griffis Memorial Test at Indianapolis in October, where he topped the charts in three out of the six sessions. Louis will be partnered with veteran engineer John Hayes, and both look to fight for wins this season after a great showing together at the Griffis test.
“I moved to America in August of last year and I’m delighted to get this opportunity to race here with Exclusive Autosport in Indy Pro 2000 while continuing my studies in LA,” said Foster, who is backed by Copart, a global leader in vehicle remarketing and recycling. “Last year was a massive learning curve for me in Euroformula Open, as it was my first year competing full-time outside the United Kingdom. Now we’ve taken another big step to head to another continent to live and race. I’m really happy with how the Indianapolis test went and if that’s a reflection of how our year could go, I’m really looking forward to the challenge. The team is really friendly and well organized, and I’m excited to work with them more in the off-season to build on what we’ve achieved already.”
“Louis did a fantastic job in Euroformula Open in 2021,” enthused Michael Duncalfe, Team Principal. “He tested very well with us at IMS this past October. We are honoured that he chose to run with Exclusive Autosport for his first year competing on U.S. soil and are looking forward to getting the season underway next month.”
Exclusive Autosport will continue its extensive off-season testing with Louis and other 2022 prospects at scheduled events in the southern states, ahead of the official Road to Indy Spring Training event at Homestead-Miami Speedway on February 14-15, 2022. The new season officially kicks off at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in Florida on February 25-27, running alongside the NTT INDYCAR SERIES.
