Fernando Alonso’s FA Racing with Drivex is among the 10 teams confirmed for the 2019 Formula Renault Eurocup championship, the series has revealed.
Seven returning teams and three new teams have been listed for the first year of a new generation of Formula Renault championship, with the series running the new halo-clad Formula 3 car for the first time.
FA Racing, which already competes in Formula 4, karting, and eSports, will make the step up to the championship after partnering with Formula Renault regular Drivex.
“This series has provided some of my toughest competitors in F1 and this highlights its very high competitiveness level!” said Alonso.
“After karting, eSport, and F4, Formula Renault is for FA Racing the logical step in our development. The arrival of the new car was the opportunity to start on the same level as all the teams and we are now eager to be on the starting grid to show what we are made of!
“On a more personal note, it is a great pleasure to continue my history with Renault.”
Also joining the championship this season will be Italian F4 regular BhaiTech, which ran championship runner-up Leonardo Lorandi in 2018, and Toyota Racing Series team M2 Competition.
Returning to the championship will be reigning champions R-ace GP, MP Motorsport, Josef Kaufmann Racing, JD Motorsport, Tech 1 Racing, Arden Motorsport, and AVF by Adrian Valles.
Absent from the pre-selection list is Fortec Motorsport, which finished seventh in last year’s teams’ championship.
