Mexican Jorge Cavellos has signed with Mtech Lite to compete in the 2012 Protyre Formula Renault BARC Championship.

The 17 year old former Pan-American and Team Mexico kart racer will be embarking on his first full car racing season, after limited car racing experience in one-off appearances in the US Skip Barber Series and the Mexican Latam F2000 Championship.

High School student Cevallos is a newly enrolled member of the Escuderia Telmex Driver Development programme, which has produced drivers including F1 star Sergio Perez. Cevallos is the second young driver from the programme to be competing in Formula Renault BARC this year, with Diego Menchaca running with Fortec Motorsport.

Cevallos said: “I am very pleased to have signed to drive with Mtech Lite and am really looking forward to making my Formula Renault debut with them next weekend at Snetterton. I am under no illusions though that it will be easy and I am grateful that the team has many experienced people on-board to help me.

“To come to Europe to race as a member of the Escuderia Telmez Driver Development programme is a dream come true and I am especially grateful to my sponsors Tijuana, Baja California Mexico, Caliente Casino, Grupo Tersa and Marti for making this possible.”

Mtech Lite Team Manager Lee Jones added: “We are delighted to have secured Jorge's services and I'm very pleased to welcome him to join Sean Walkinshaw in our Formula Renault team.”
