Brazilian Thiago Vivacqua will continue his association with JD Motorsport into 2015, and will race for the team in both the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup and ALPS series’.
The eighteen-year-old joined JD Motorsport for the season finale of the Eurocup championship in 2014, having spent the year racing for Fortec Motorsports in the ALPS championship, finishing a best of fourteenth place in a point-less season.
Vivacqua had made his Formula Renault 2.0 debut back in 2013, racing two rounds of the NEC championship for the ART Junior Team before joining Fortec.
“I’m delighted with having the opportunity to race in both the Eurocup and ALPS championship with JD Motorsport,” insisted Vivacqua. “I immediately felt comfortable with the Team and the car from the first test we have done together.
“Now I want to learn as quick as possible and improve my competitiveness: the Eurocup will be very demanding and a step forward for me after one year in ALPS. I will do all my best and I look forward to starting the season!”
Vivacqua joins Russian Matevos Isaakyan in the team, with Team Principal Roberto Cavallari insisting it was a target of the team to hire the Brazilian after seeing him bond with the team quickly.
“Thiago immediately established a good working and human relationship with JD Motorsport’s engineers and mechanics and so it was one of our targets for this season to have the Brazilian driver in our Team,” said Cavallari.
“The double program in Eurocup and ALPS will allow to Thiago to acquire the necessary experience to develop his driving skills and show his potential”.
