Tatuus JR-23

The Tatuus JR-23 will make its competition debut in 2023, utilizing the same base chassis as the first two steps of the Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires with some modifications to conform to an entry level step. Drivers and teams can begin with the JR-23 chassis and continue to advance up the world’s most complete driver development system with a forward-thinking three-step concept.

The Tatuus JR-23 will utilize the same monocoque and main components of both the USF-22 and IP-22 chassis, which launched this year in USF2000 and the Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires respectively. Upgrades include a new, wider monocoque with the addition of a Halo-type device as well as new sidepods, underfloor, engine cover, air ducts, damper cover and fuel cell.

Modifications for the USF Juniors series include the uprights, brake package, dampers and wheels. The USF2000 2-liter MZR powerplant prepared by Elite Engines will use a different restrictor plate producing 150 horsepower. The Cooper tire-shod chassis will feature the latest Magneti Marelli data logger and ECU.

“We are very pleased to announce the new Tatuus JR-23 as the chassis the USF Juniors championship will use starting with the 2023 season,” said Dan Andersen, Owner and CEO of Andersen Promotions. “Tatuus has been an amazing manufacturer to work with since 2017 and this car completes a three-step lineup using the same basic design. The JR-23 combines the highest small formula car quality in the world with the economic advantages of our three-step concept, and we expect to see wide team and driver acceptance. Coupled with an Elite engine and Cooper tires, this car will be strong.”
