Jack Hawksworth has got his bid to make it back-to-back successes across the other side of the Pond off to the perfect start in the 2013 Firestone Indy Lights Championship – and after triumphing on his series debut in the curtain-raising St. Petersburg 100, he has warned his rivals that he is only going to get better.
Jack Hawksworth made an instant impression stateside by dominating the fiercely-contested Star Mazda Championship as a US racing rookie in 2012, and as he maintains his pursuit of the American Dream, the talented young Bradford-born single-seater ace has graduated to Indy Lights this year with the benchmark Schmidt Peterson Motorsports (SPM) outfit. He admits that he headed down to Florida in optimistic mood.
“We had a very positive pre-season, completed plenty of laps and learnt a lot from testing,” Jack Hawksworth affirmed. “It all ran extremely smoothly, and arriving at St. Petersburg, I felt we had done everything we could and had created a very solid foundation to build upon. I knew we were in good shape.” – Jack Hawksworth
