James & Schmidt Peterson Motorsports added fellow Canadian Robert Wickens to the Team & within the first 4 races, five-time Verizon IndyCar Series race winner and Indy 500 pole qualifier James Hinchcliffe is having an exciting season! This placed James 5th overall in the Series with 2 top 5 finishes / 4 top 10 & 50 laps lead!
Having raced karts successfully until 2002, James graduated from our three-day race license course and finished 3rd overall in the Bridgestone Racing Academy's Series in 2003 with five wins, four poles and 11 podium results. From 2004 to 2010 James ran in Formula BMW, Formula Mazda, A1GP, Formula Atlantic and Indy Lights.
Jeremy Hinchcliffe carefully chose the Bridgestone Racing Academy as his son's initial training ground for race cars due to the Academy's 33-year injury-free safety record, comprehensiveness of the programs, and purpose built training track (with very few walls and guard rails).
We're already very excited to follow James through 2018 as he races for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports!
Captured the TKC Junior Rotax Class Karting Championship with seven wins in seven starts in 2002. Earned Junior Rotax Canada Cup title and won TKC Winter Series Championship in 2002. Competed in several regional and national karting series and championships throughout the United States and Canada.
