Haverkort joins VAR for 2022 season
Dutch driver Kas Haverkort joins team Van Amersfoort Racing for 2022 Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine. The 18yo from Overijssel, confirms its participation in the feeder series for a second-year campaign.
Haverkort entered the FRECA last year after becoming Spanish F4 Champion in his Formula racing debut in 2020, racing in 2021 for MP Motorsport and claiming a best 4th position in the closing race at Monza and the P2 Rookie.
“Last year, my first season in FRECA, was all about learning”, Haverkort commented. “The car is very different to a Formula 4 car and has a much higher level of complexity to it. Obviously it’s much faster, but especially the grip levels are spectacular. I really enjoy the characteristics and look extremely forward to race with this car for another year. To me, joining Van Amersfoort Racing is key to reaching my goals for the upcoming season. I have tested with them, both in F4 and recently FRECA, and the team’s professionalism and track-record are impressive, not to mention that I feel very much at home with them!”
VAR’s CEO Rob Niessink is clearly happy about the joining of the young Dutchman: “It’s great to see another Dutch driver climbing the ranks, but what’s even better is that we have him in our team for the upcoming season! Kas is clearly very talented, something he proved by winning an F4 Championship title coming straight from karting. We certainly were already aware of his capabilities, which was once again confirmed during the recent post-season test at Mugello. It still is a long run to the first race weekend in April, giving Kas and the team valuable time for the best possible preparation.”
