“US Open Rotax Junior Champion Trenton Estep set to contest second season with Team Koene USA”
“Trenton was a valuable asset to our Junior program in 2015 and we think he will be right at home in Rotax Senior as well,” explained Team Koene USA Principal Mike Maurini. “Trenton impressed us when he raced with other teams in karting but once he was under our team tent, we really saw his true potential. Since the first event back in February, Trenton was at the front of the field in almost every national event he has competed in and was part of a three-win weekend for Team Koene USA at the US Open of Dallas.”
Under the guidance of Team Koene USA and his engine builder and tuner, Estep went on to claim the US Open of Dallas and the US Open of Colorado victories. Battling for the overall US Open title until the very last lap on the temporary circuit at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, Estep emerged as the series champion and joined Team USA at the annual Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals (RMCGF) in Portimao Portugal. Showing his champion-like poise and determination, Trenton ran at the front of the talent-laden international field in the world class event representing both Team Koene USA and his country very well.
Maurini continued, “We welcome Trenton back to the team and he will be one of a few high-powered Senior drivers to compete under the Team Koene USA banner. Though he will participate in other motorsports events in 2016, Team Koene USA will show and support yet another driver that looks to make his mark on the motorsports community.”
Team Koene USA will announce additional drivers in the coming weeks as the team sets to embark on the 2016 season.
