Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish F4 squad Dou­ble R Rac­ing has signed Swede Li­nus Lundqvist as its first driver for the se­ries this year.

The 17-year-old won the For­mula STCC Nordic Championship last year in For­mula Re­nault 1.6 ma­chin­ery and im­pressed team boss An­thony Hieatt with his pace when test­ing at Sil­ver­stone at the end of last year.

“I have to say I’m gen­uinely im­pressed by what I’ve seen of Li­nus this win­ter,” said Hieatt. “Test­ing went in­cred­i­bly well. He turned up for the first time at Sil­ver­stone, a tough track, and im­me­di­ately set the pace.

“He comes highly rec­om­mended and I firmly be­lieve that we’ll be run­ning right at the front with Li­nus this year. I’d ex­pect us to fight for race wins and the ti­tle, and we’re all ex­cited to have Li­nus on board.”

Dou­ble R took four wins last year in the se­ries with Aus­tralian Zane God­dard.
