BOSS GP driver Luis Michael Dorrbecker is on his way to the Verizon IndyCar Series.
The 24 year old Mexican, who has relations to Germany as well, will be testing for Schmidt Peterson Motorsport (SPM) at Sebring on the 1st of March.
Dorrbecker won the Auto GP Championship in 2016, where he did a double programme, and finished in P2 in the BOSS GP Formula rankings with Team Torino Squadra Corse in a Lola B05/52 car.
So far it’s just one test, but SPM is aiming at entering a third car in addition to their already announced two-cars programme. And this third car could be Dorrbecker’s, in case everything goes well with the test.
Like so many other Mexican drivers, he is sponsored by Telmex, and they could throw in quite a good chunk of Peso for the IndyCar seat. He started his driving in Mexico, where he won several Karting Championships between 2005 and 2007. Then he went on to Skip Barber Southern Regional Series, where he finished as runner-up in 2009, followed by several seasons in Europe, where he has participated in Italian Formula Renault 2,0, Spanish F3 and latter, the Auto GP and BOSS GP Championships.
It will be very interesting to follow him on the test day, and hopefully in a race seat later in the year in Verizon IndyCar Series 2017.
