Leading Formula Renault UK team CRS Racing have confirmed their fourth driver ahead of the 2010 Championship.
Joining the returning Harry Tincknell and Michael Lyons and series debutant Robert-Foster Jones at the 2008 Driver Champions is former British Formula 3 National Class runner Victor Correa. Correa has decided to look at Formula Renault UK to carry on his single seater career, with the new for 2010 cars and the competitive grids.
The 19 year old Brazilian commented on signing for CRS: “Formula Renault will be a good challenge for me, the new car looks very interesting and it will be a good opportunity for me to show what I can do in an equal car. I chose CRS because I think it is the best team with a very good structure and I think that, as a team, we can fight for the championship. I think we will have a good year together and hope that we can go out there and compete for victories.”
Correa took a single British Formula 3 National Class win en route to third overall in the National Class, and backed this single win up with 10 podium finishes.
“We are very happy to have signed Victor,” said Team Director Andrew Kirkaldy. “He is an experienced driver and with a new car it is good for the team to have that experience to help us move forward. We've been going well in pre-season testing so we are all feeling optimistic about the season ahead of us.”
Correa will join his new CRS Racing team mates at the first official test at Brands Hatch on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
