Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
