The Green Mountain Racing snocross team has announced its lineup for the 2022 season, and it includes the latest in a line of Scandinavian drivers crossing the Atlantic, plus competitors from the U.S. and Canada.
The truly international effort will also be led by a new leader, as recently retired snocross racer Bradley Tatro takes over a team that his father Nate Tatro started to support his son’s racing efforts. The team’s efforts will be primarily focused in the Pro-Lite division on the ISOC Amsoil Championship Series this year, though they also have one young racer who will compete full-time in the Sport 16/17 class.
The big new signing to the team is Lukas Johannson of Sweden. He competed last year in Europe on a Lynx snowmobile and finished fourth in the World Championship event in Finland. Although he beat out some competitors there who will race in the Pro division in North America next winter, he’ll start his first season in Pro Lite over here.
Johannson will be joined in the Pro-Lite division for 2022 by teammates William St-Laurent and Adam Levi.
Levi is a carryover for Green Mountain after competing for the team for the past four years. He’s won several class titles racing in the East, but the Inlet, New York, native will be focused full-time on the national circuit for 2022.
St-Laurent, meanwhile, will be returning to the Amsoil Championship Series after being trapped in his native Canada last year due to COVID restrictions. He’s from St. Bruno, Quebec and just 20 years old.
Thomas Levi is the 16-year-old who will compete in the Sport 16/17 class. In a press release from Green Mountain Racing, he was described as “part of the long-term future at GMR” and, like his brother, he’s been a part of the team for four years.
Back to the team ownership, Bradley Tatro competed for 13 years in snocross but retired last spring after some rather serious injuries in recent years. He’ll be the team manager, but “with Nate stepping aside this does not mean he won’t be around,” the team said in a press release. “We look forward to seeing him on race weekends throughout the upcoming snocross season.”
