Mikhail Aleshin Joins Superleague Formula Grid

1 Mins read

Mikhail Aleshin will race in Superleague Formula from the next round of the season at Zolder on July 16/17.

The Russian will race a car in his nation's own colours prepared by the AtechReidGP squad.

The 24-year-old won last year's Formula Renault 3.5 Series title, and began 2011 racing in GP2 with Carlin. However, budget issues restricted him to just two events. He has also made one-off entries in FR3.5 and German F3.

“It is great to be coming to Superleague Formula and to race for Russia,” said Aleshin. “I've watched the series on TV and I've been told how good the cars are to drive.

“I know some of the guys on the grid and there are some very good racers in the championship. I'm confident that I will be quick straight away, and I hope to be challenging from the very beginning.”

Team Manager Anthony Reid said: “Mikhail is a great signing for AtechReidGP and Superleague Formula. Anyone who can match results with, and then beat a driver of the calibre of Daniel Ricciardo is certainly going to be a contender. It's great that as a championship we can attract drivers like Mikhail, who is young, hungry, fast and ambitious.”
