Indianapolis, October 27, 2010: O2 Racing has added engineer Dave Buschemeyer to its team for the 2011 Firestone Indy Lights season.

Buschemeyer, who most recently worked with KV Racing Technology in the IZOD IndyCar Series, is the latest addition to the team's engineering staff, which includes veteran engineer Dave McMillan and has a working relationship with Thomas Knapp.

Among the drivers Buschemeyer has worked with are: Sam Hornish Jr., Kenny Brack, Max Papis, Tomas Scheckter, Paul Tracy, A.J. Allmendinger, Raphael Matos, James Hinchcliffe, Greg Mansell and Takuma Sato.

"With the recent addition of engineer Dave McMillan to the team and the continued relationship with Thomas Knapp, we've been able to make some key hires early in the off season that will dramatically improve our already formidable bench strength," said team owner Mark Olson. "I can't think of a more talented group of guys, all focused on building a program that is bigger than themselves individually. The team chemistry combined with the engineering expertise has O2 Racing poised to be one of the premier teams for 2011 and beyond."
