Lanan Racing snaps up BRDC F4 returnee Rabindra for full campaign
Frontrunning BRDC Formula 4 team Lanan Racing has signed Akhil Rabindra as its first driver for this season.
The 19-year-old Indian drove for Douglas Motorsport in the series in 2015 and finished 13th in the points in his first year of European racing.
He will now move to Lanan, which has won the drivers’ title with Jake Hughes and George Russell.
“Lanan Racing has been the most successful team in F4 so I am really happy to be joining them,” said Rabindra.
“Last year gave me the experience of racing in the UK that I needed and I am looking forward to fighting at the front this year.”
Team principal Graham Johnson added: “We saw how Akhil improved as last year progressed, so it’s great to have signed him. His record is strong and we are looking forward to working with him to push him forward and on to race wins.”
