Tatiana Calderón’s historic maiden season in the Japanese-based Super Formula will see her supported by ROKiT, the same brand that supports the Williams Racing teamin Formula 1.
Calderón, who in 2020 will become the first full-time female racer in Super Formula history, will drive for the returning Drago Corse with ThreeBond team, and will be promoted by ROKiT Drinks brand Bandero Tequila.
The twenty-six-year-old will also compete in the European Le Mans Series in 2020 for Richard Mille Racing alongside fellow female racers Katherine Legge and Sophia Flörsch, and Calderón will be supported by ROKiT Cities as well as singer-songwriter Maisy Kay.
“I’m very grateful to the ROKiT Group and in particular to Jonathan Kendrick for this fantastic opportunity and for believing in me,” said Calderón. “To have partners like this is the best recognition I can have, as it allows me to focus on being the best I can be in racing.
“For a while I faced the prospect of having my career in single seaters stall, but the ROKiT Group has believed in my project and I can’t thank them enough for their faith. We will ROKiT together!”
