Since the final checkered flag of the 2022 season in Portland, Illinois resident Christian Weir has had his sights set on the 2023 campaign. With a program that has undergone big changes in both a series upgrade and a team change, the same determined and motivated Weir is primed and ready for a new season of competition to begin this weekend at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
“I am ready to go,” explained Weir. “A new team in TJ Speed and a new series in the USF Pro 2000 Championship has reenergized me as I look to continue my climb up the motorsports ladder. We had a good off-season of testing and now it is time to put all that new knowledge and experience to use when the green flag flies in St. Pete.”
Leveling up from USF2000 to the USF Pro 2000 Presented by Cooper Tires program with the potent TJ Speed program, Weir is hoping to not only add to his resume but continue the team’s success as well. Racing alongside Franceso Pizzi and Lirim Zendelli, the trio of competitors is one of the strongest combinations on the grid as they look to fight for race wins, podium results, end-of-year championship, and advancement scholarship to the next level.
Weir continued, “My goal is simple, I want to be a professional in the NTT INDYCAR Series, and I am two rungs away from the top level of motorsports in North America. While that is the long-term goal, I am 100% focused on this season and doing the best job possible. I feel I am ready to learn, and battle at the front of what could be the strongest USF Pro 2000 field in series history and have learned to take nothing for granted.”
Christian Weir will officially begin his 2023 season March 3-5 on the barrier-lined circuit in St. Petersburg, Florida.
