02/04/15 AutoRacing1 is hearing from another source that Florian Latorre is going to re-join Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing to contest the 2015 Pro Mazda Championship. Latorre, of course, won the 2014 U.S. F2000 Series title, and recently tested with the team. We expect an announcement soon.

02/01/15 2014 Cooper Tires USF2000 Powered By Mazda champion Florian Latorre tested earlier this week for Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing at the Homestead-Miami Speedway road course. Although nothing has been made official Latorre drove for Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing in 2014, and has the scholarship money to 'move up' to Pro Mazda.

Toronto native Nicolas Latifi also got a taste of Pr Mazda this week, testing for M1 Autosport. The 19-year-old spent 2014 primarily in the FIA European Formula 3 Championship.
