Boya joins FA Racing for 2021 season
Spanish racer Mari Boya has joined FA Racing to compete in the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine this year. The 16-year-old from Lleida graduates from a race-winning debut season in motorsport, having claimed the second place in the 2020 Spanish F4 championship.
Boya steps up on the back of a season that saw him take three wins and 14 podium finishes. He joins Andrea Rosso and Alexandre Bardinon in a three-car effort by Fernando Alonso’s FA Racing.
“I’m really happy to be in Formula Regional European with FA Racing this year”, Boya said. “It feels good not to hesitate and quickly graduate to a higher category in single-seaters, and it’s especially rewarding to join FA Racing for that. Driving for my countryman Fernando Alonso, a living legend in motor racing is an honor and a dream come true. I hope to repay his faith in me by continuing the form I have shown in Spanish F4, and hopefully even better.”
“It’s excellent news that Mari has joined our Formula Regional team”, FA Racing’s Paul Anthony commented. “In his first year in single-seaters, he’s shown that he is an exceptional talent, and I’m certain that he won’t be fazed by turning up another notch. In Andrea, Alexandre and Mari, we have a superb mix of experience and raw speed that will undoubtedly translate into all three shining as front-runners in the category.”
