Race car driver David Richert has signed with Team Torino Motorsport in Italy for the 2011 race season. Richert will contest several events in the very quick Formula Renault 2.0 race car at some of the most prestigious race tracks in the world, including races at Imola and Monza.
“I’m excited to climb back into a single-seater race car,” Richert says, “And to be able to do that in Italy is a dream come true. This is a great opportunity to advance my racing career, and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
The Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari is near the Italian town of Imola, east of Bologna and just 80 kilometers from the Ferrari factory in Maranello. The circuit has hosted many years of Formula 1 World Championship events and was the location of a weekend of tragic events in 1994 which took the life of F1 legend Ayrton Senna.
“We are very happy to have David with us for the 2011 season,” says Marco Braghero, Team Manager of Team Torino Motorsport. “He’s a successful Canadian race car driver with a lot of experience and we’re honoured to have him.”
The Formula Renault 2.0 race car has been the race car of choice for many of today’s top drivers in launching their careers. The race car is capable of accelerating from 0 to 160 km/h in 4.85 seconds and braking from 200 km/h to a stop in 4.6 seconds.
Most notably, Formula 1 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen advanced directly from a F. Renault into Formula 1. Other successful Formula 1 drivers to have raced in a Formula Renault include World Champion Lewis Hamilton, and Grand Prix Winners Felipe Massa and Robert Kubica.
David Richert was recently selected by Volkswagen as one of the best up and coming young race car drivers in North America. After winning accolades as a race car driver over the last few years with Volkswagen, David is ready to take the next step forward in his racing career.
