Das to race with Carlin
Cameron Das has confirmed he will compete in the 2018 Euroformula Open with team Carlin. Following a winter campaign in the TRS New Zealand, the 17-year-old American driver has already been testing with his Carlin race team in Barcelona. Das, who already has a good relationship with the team after a season racing in the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship, will continue the partnership as he embarks on a pre-season test programme continuing with Paul Ricard later this week.
“I am elated to announce my involvement in Euroformula Open with Carlin this year,” Das said, “The championship is incredibly strong, and it offers a platform which I believe will prepare me well for other European championships in the future. I’m glad I have the opportunity to work with Carlin which has had an incredible influence in my development thus far. I have no doubts that we will be championship contenders from the start. They truly have an A-list group of people working on our 2018 effort. I am especially excited to work with Harvey Spencer as my engineer, so I feverishly anticipate our results this year. Personally, I’ve been working incredibly hard during this off-season to best prepare for this championship. I believe my participation in the Toyota Racing Series, recent winter tests, and off-track physical training have put me in better form ahead of a season than ever before. I am incredibly grateful for my sponsors, the Bertil Roos Racing School and Autobahn Indoor Speedway, for helping to make my wildest dreams a reality.”
Trevor Carlin added, “We are thrilled to welcome Cameron to our Euroformula Open team for the 2018 season. We’ve enjoyed working with him since he first starting testing with us before he raced in the BRDC British F3 Championship in one of our cars. He’s already had a taste of the Euroformula Open car in racing conditions so we’re very much looking forward to the upcoming season working together where we know he will be a podium and race winning contender throughout.”
Das will be on track later this week for the second Euroformula Open test in France.
