New Zealand’s Billy Frazer Joins Exclusive Autosport For 2021 USF2000 Campaign

New Zealand’s Billy Frazer Joins Exclusive Autosport For 2021 USF2000 Campaign

SASKATOON, SK (February 11, 2021) – Exclusive Autosport is excited to announce that 18-year-old Billy Frazer will be joining the EA team for the 2021 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship season. Fresh off his New Zealand Formula Ford F1600 championship title and valuable experience in the recent Toyota Racing Series, Frazer is poised and ready for the next step of his racing career, the Road to Indy. Frazer will join the team in March, when he will take to the track for his first experience in the Tatuus USF-17.

 

“I am super excited to have teamed up with Michael Duncalfe and the Exclusive Autosport operation for this year’s Cooper Tires USF2000 series,” said Frazer. “I am really looking forward to the challenge of racing a different car on different tracks in a new country. Heading to the States to race has always been a dream of mine and now that it is almost a reality. I can’t wait!”

 

Frazer got his start in karting at the young age of nine in 2012. He was successful in grabbing wins in his home country of New Zealand and he also went on to represent his country at the 2015 ROK Cup Superfinal in Italy, as well as the 2015 Superkarts! USA SuperNationals in Las Vegas, running against some of the stiffest competition in the world. In 2017, Frazer made his first jump into cars by competing in a half season of Formula Vee before committing to a full season in 2018 and 2019. In 2018, Billy would finish fifth in the championship, but he would come back in 2019 to place third in the title chase. The 2020 season brought on new challenges as he moved up to the New Zealand Formula Ford F1600 series, where he won the championship in impressive fashion with 25 wins and 32 podiums in 36 races. The young New Zealander is currently racing in the Toyota Racing Series in preparation for his 2021 Road to Indy debut at Barber Motorsports Park in mid-March.

 

“I’m extremely happy that Billy has chosen to race with Exclusive Autosport this season,” enthused Michael Duncalfe, Team Principal. “He is coming into the program with a lot of positive momentum from winning the 2020 New Zealand F1600 championship and competing in the 2021 TRS championship. Billy’s experience and winning attitude will be a valuable asset as he makes the move to the USF2000 Championship. I am looking forward to seeing Billy compete in an EA prepared Tatuus USF2000. I believe it’s going to be a great season for the EA team.”

 

Exclusive Autosport has continued its extensive off-season testing with confirmed drivers Braden Eves (Indy Pro 2000) and Christian Brooks (USF2000). The team will continue its testing schedule up until the Road to Indy’s Spring Training event at the beginning of April.

 

Exclusive Autosport is pleased to be able to partner with great companies, such as Cambridge Global Payments (https://ca.cambridgefx.com/exclusive-autosport/) and AERO™ Advanced Paint Technology (www.rethinkpaint.com), which is used on all their race cars.
