Fittipaldi name returns to the UK as Enzo joins Ginetta Junior class
The grandson of double Formula 1 champion Emerson Fittipaldi will compete in Ginetta Juniors this year.
Enzo Fittipaldi, 14, was a finalist in the Ginetta Junior Scholarship last year and will now make the step up from karting into cars. He has won numerous karting races in the USA and was second in the Rotax Grand National Championship in 2013.
Fittipaldi will partner Ginetta Junior Winter Series champion Stuart Middleton at Douglas Motorsport.
“Switching from karts into cars will be a challenge,” said Fittipaldi. “Ginetta Junior allows young drivers like myself to familiarise with all of the UK’S tracks, while also being a highly competitive and well-televised series.”
Fittipaldi’s brother Pietro has also raced in the UK, securing the Formula Renault BARC title in 2014. He also won the MRF Challenge last weekend.
