US F1 Signs Supplier Partnership with ACG

From all the newly entrants in the 2010 Formula One Championship, US F1 team is the only one not to announce at least a single driver for their inaugural campaign in the series. However, that doesn't mean preparations for the upcoming season aren't going at full speed, as the North Carolina based outfit recently confirmed its new supplier partnership for the 2010 season.

According to the team's part-owner Ken Anderson, the Charlotte outfit signed a deal with Umeco's Oklahoma-based Advanced Composites Group (ACG) earlier this week.

USF1 Team is pleased to announce ACG as a technical partner in the design and construction of our 2010 Formula One car. The team faces a tremendous challenge to design and produce the first American-based Formula One car in more than 40 years, and ACG's composites expertise will be critical for us to meet our goals and expectations in 2010 and beyond,” said team principal Ken Anderson in a press release.

There is an exciting time of change in Formula One racing and this has created the opportunity for new teams to enter the grid. US F1 Team is the sole American entry, and we are proud to support them from our Tulsa facility. I’m confident that the new team has signed up with the very best support and service in the industry, and we will demonstrate that their confidence in us is well placed,” added Adrian Potts, President of ACG Inc.

Having announced their new partnership, US F1 are now in a good position to make the January 31st deadline for the group car launch in Valencia. The team is yet to issue a statement regarding its future lineup, with Alexander Wurz being again in pole position to secure one of those seats.
