Novato’s Jason Alexandridis will start his career in professional motor racing in earnest this weekend, starting a full season campaign in the Pirelli World Challenge at Circuit of the Americas near Austin, Texas. He will drive the TRG Aston Martin Racing No. 09 Rebounderz Aston Martin Vantage V8 in the GTS class.

Although he’ll drive solo in 10 of his 13 races on the season, the unique format for the WC this year means that he and teammate Derek DeBoer share the car but not in the same race. On each of 10 race weekends there will be two races without a driver change. One driver will qualify the car and race on Saturday. His finishing position will determine the starting position for the second driver in the same car on Sunday. Alexandridis will qualify and start the Saturday race every other race weekend, starting with the second round next week at St. Petersburg, Fla., on the street circuit as part of the opening IndyCar race weekend.
