Thompson sets sights on Canadian F1600 glory with Exclusive Autosport

Parker Thompson is pleased to announce a one race deal with Exclusive Autosport, in an effort to etch his name into the history books as the winner of the 50th Anniversary of the Xstch F1600 Formula Tour at the Montreal F1 Grand Prix.

“I couldn’t be happier that this one race deal came together last minute to be apart of the Formula One Grand Prix in Montreal. It has been such a pleasure working with Exclusive Autosport this year in the USF2000 Championship, so when the opportunity arose to pilot one of their rocketship Spectrum F1600 cars – I couldn’t decline,” enthused Thompson. “I am grateful for the opportunity from Michael Duncalfe (Team Owner – Exclusive Autosport), and owe the guys in the shop huge credit for working overtime to get a fifth car fully prepared in such short notice,” said Thompson with a smile. “I also wanted to thank Spectrum Race Cars and Elite Racing Engines, for both pulling strings in order to make this deal move forward and get the #90 Exclusive Autosport car on the grid.”

While Thompson may be in the same #90 Exclusive Autosport entry that you have come to know and love in 2017, this weekend the car will have a very different look and feel to it. The #90 race car that Thompson will be piloting is a brand new 2017 Spectrum. The livery for the #90 this weekend will be dedicated to the 50th Anniversary of F1600 at the Montreal Grand Prix – with a white and red scheme provided by AERO Paint Technology. Parker has partnered with two brand new partners for the Montreal F1 Grand Prix, and they both couldn’t be more excited to be involved with making this special one-off event happen.
