After living and working in Europe in 2019, American female motorsports driver Sabré Cook will return to the United States in 2020. Set to continue her competition in W Series, Cook will also compete in a partial Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires program with Team Benik as she readies to jet set her way around the globe this coming race season.
“I’m very excited to rejoin Team Benik and my Road to Indy campaign,” expressed Sabré Cook. “I think supplementing my second season in W Series competition with another great open wheel series like the Indy Pro 2000 Championship will only accelerate my development as a driver. Benik, my partners, and I have been working very hard to make a feasible program for this season, and I really appreciate everyone’s efforts to make this happen.”
Set to compete in six events, Cook will see action March 12-14 on the Streets of St. Petersburg, April 23-26 at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, May 7-9 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the Grand Prix weekend, Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin over the June 19-21 weekend as well as the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca August 14-16 and September 18-20.
“Sabré was with us in a partial USF2000 season in 2018, and we are happy to have her back in 2020,” added Nick Mitchell. “She has a lot of racing planned in 2020, and we look forward to supporting her in her six events in North America and can’t wait to get to St. Pete. She has worked for this opportunity, and we are very happy to be part of it with her.”
Cook continued, “I’m very excited to have Apple Motorsports, GJ Home Builders, Alpine Bank, Grand Junction Motor Speedway, and Bell Helmets on board for another season of competition. I’m also ecstatic to welcome Xtract Technologies and Iron Neck as new partners to my program. Without all these wonderful people to support me I wouldn’t have this opportunity in 2020. We’re all excited for a great season!”
With programs from karting and into the Road to Indy, Team Benik is looking to put their USF-17 cars on track in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship to run alongside Sabré and her Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires.
