Irish Combo of Turn 3 Motorsport and Jonathan Browne ready to tackle Mid-Ohio

Turn 3 Motorsport is set for Rounds 10 and 11 of the USF Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires this weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. The four car program—made up of drivers Michael d’Orlando, Ireland’s Jonathan Browne, Louka St-Jean, and Jackson Lee—will run two 30-lap races on Saturday on the 2.258-mile, 13-turn road course as part of the popular NTT IndyCar Series Grand Prix event.

Turn 3 Motorsport has claimed victory on the Ohio circuit in previous years, winning both the final USF2000 and USF Pro 2000 races at the end of 2021 and earning a top-five result last year. Coming into the weekend with a win from d’Orlando and a podium from Browne at the previous round at Road America, the team looks to carry that momentum forward into the Cooper Tires Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio.

“Mid-Ohio comes just after the halfway point in the season,” said Browne. “The last couple of races have been good to me, so I’ll be looking to carry this run of form forward into the weekend. Qualifying well will be important around here as passing opportunities aren’t the same as Road America. I’m ready to see what we’ve got!”

Pre-event testing will take place today with two on track sessions. Tomorrow will host an official practice and two qualifying sessions with both races taking place on Saturday.
