You all know that the Toyota Atlantic's Championship has come and gone with the movement of its father series Champ Car gone to IRL. Yet you remember when the series was huge while it followed Champ Car and took in some of America's top drivers. The 2004 Atlantic's Champion Brook Johnston has recently lead the Championship points standings for the newly founded Formula BMW International series and been asked to test for F1's STR team this August. I remember Johnston back when he first started Atlantics with G-Racing and the terrible first season he had with them, almost dropping off the racing grid itself. Yet he was given the perfect chance to redeem himself for another season from Team HDI Racing and placed third that season and won the championship the next season. This guy has been to the bottom and almost been gone from racing itself and has earned himself a top spot in STR's eyes. Just wanted to recap the memories dating back to what I thought would just be another rookie dropout, that ended up turning to gold. He just won a race in Monaco the other day for the first race on the European tour and is suprising the hell out of everyone. Who is this guy? Well he is the young man that went from Atlantics screw up to Formula BMW International golden boy. Not sure how he will do in F1, but he has my vote.
