AMBITIOUS Warrnambool driver Jamie Veal believes his knowledge of the American sprintcar landscape will benefit his charge for international racing glory.
The 28-year-old is set to jet off to America in a fortnight to prepare for the World of Outlaws series.
Veal plans to follow the prestigious series across the United States from July onwards.
It will mark the third consecutive season the Warrnambool-based driver has raced in the United States during the Australian off-season.
“You go there to keep up your race fitness. Some of the tracks you’re racing on are totally different,” Veal told The Standard.
“You’re always learning different things here and there, and working so you’re never stuck in the same hole.
“There’s some things you think you’ll never learn, but going over there, you just keep learning and learning. It should be great.”
Veal, who signed to replace Brooke Tatnell at Krikke Motorsport in April, said the deal meant he could have the same mechanic working on his cars in both Australia and the United States.
“It worked in that I can run my car in America, and run the Krikke car here,” he said.
“Everything that I’ve got in Australia is going to be everything I’ve got in America. It’s one big team wrapped up.
“I’ll be heading over there soon to sort everything out and then we’ll be right to start following World of Outlaws in July. We’ll follow that and get as much experience as we can.”
