The four-race, two-event weekend Formula Pro USA Winter Series came to a close this past weekend and it was Doran Motorsports Group (DMG) that ended on top. Earning two pole positions, two race wins, and four podium results, DMG drivers went on to finish first and second in the F4 points championship as the team shifts their focus this weekend to a single entry at the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda at NOLA Motorsports Park.
“We are very proud of our drivers and the entire team,” expressed Francois Doran. “This had to be the most demanding two weeks of racing I have seen in a long time. With very treacherous track conditions changing hourly and a couple of on-track incidents, the entire team was put to the test, and I feel our drivers and the crew succeeded.”
Leading the way on the results sheet was F4 young gun Daniel Quimby. Claiming two pole positions and two race wins, Quimby became the youngest driver to ever win the Formula Pro USA Winter Series Championship.
“A huge thanks to Doran Motorsports Group for giving me a car to win in,” explained Daniel Quimby. “I’m grateful to be crowned the 2023 Winter Series Champion and couldn’t have done it without my team. I would like to thank my sponsors Galvaniize Insurance, Shell Rimula, Liftronic, GANT Karting Gloves, and MIR Raceline Australia.”
Pushing Quimby to the end was Braydon Arthur. Arthur piloted his DMG prepared Ligier JSF4 to a second-place effort in qualifying, maintaining that position for race one on Saturday to earn a second-place result, and doubled up on podium finishes on Sunday crossing the line in third.
“The Winter Series was a learning experience. I feel in the end it was a true success, pushing myself the hardest I ever have both mentally and physically,” added Braydon Arthur. “I had never gone through that amount of ups and downs in that short of time before. It seemed every session had something new in store for me and the team. Regardless, I had a crazy amount of fun and I have a ton to look back on and reflect on, but I wouldn’t change a thing. I am looking forward to getting back in the car and pushing for wins! I’d like to thank Francois and the DMG team for all the hard work and for giving me a great environment to work in. I’d also like to thank all my sponsors: Speed-Fanatics Motorsports, IWE Rear Ends Only, Road 2 Racing, OSIF Racing, and Arthur Motorsports. Without them, I’d be nowhere near where I am today!”
On the F3 side of the program, David Burketh was back in action and flexing his muscles in practice. Earning the quickest time and building momentum toward the weekend, Burketh was unable to finish the weekend due to some unfortunate circumstances.
Shifting their focus to the national campaign, Alex Berg will fly the Doran Motorsports Group colors this weekend in the first round of the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda at NOLA Motorsports Park.
