Double R Racing sign Indian teenager for MSA Formula

1 Mins read

Seventeen-year-old Tarun Reddy has become Double R Racing’s first signing for the inaugural MSA Formula championship season.

The Indian driver moves from the Protyre Formula Renault series where he claimed three podium finishes in 2014, including a best finish of second at Snetterton. He made his single-seater debut in the Indian-based MRF 1600 series at the age of fifteen, and was a part of the Sahara Force India F1 Team Academy for a time.

Double R Racing are hopeful of entering three cars into MSA Formula this season, and the series gets underway at the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit on the opening weekend of April, with thirty races across ten events supporting the British Touring Car Championship.

“I’m very pleased to sign with a prestigious team like Double R Racing which has had a tremendous amount of success in Formula 3”, said Reddy, “The goal is to win from the get-go and with the experience and resources the team holds, I’m sure this is very possible.”

Double R Racing Team Principal Anthony Hieatt welcomed Reddy to the team, and believes they have a very talented youngster on their books for the 2015 season.

“Tarun is an exceptionally gifted young driver and everyone at the team is thrilled to be working with him this year in MSA Formula”, said Hieatt. “We kept a close eye on his progress last year in Formula Renault where he did an incredible job during his first season in the UK, I’ve got absolutely no doubts Tarun will be a serious contender in MSA Formula this year.”
