Campos Racing is pleased to announce that Finnish driver Simo Laaksonen will be one of their full-time drivers for the program of the Alzira-based team in the Euroformula F3 Open.
Despite his youth, whilst still only 18 years old, Laaksonen spent three season in several Formula 4-based series such as the Championnat de France F4, the SMP F4 championship or the ADAC Formel 4. The young gun has an extensive list of achievements to his name over this period. On his official debut with Campos Racing in the Winter Series, which took place at Paul Ricard, Laaksonen displayed remarkable talent fighting for a top-5 finish against much more experienced drivers.
With Laaksonen joining Thiago Vivacqua, Petru Florescu and Matheus Iorio, Campos Racing completes a line-up which is particularly strong to defend titles clinched last year.
Adrián Campos, Team Principal of Campos Racing, explained: “I´m delighted to have Simo at Campos Racing. His performance was outstanding at Paul Ricard and I´m sure he will be a regular podium visitor. Besides, I´m convinced he will be fighting for the title at the end of the season.”
The four-driver line up will contest the final Winter Series event to take place at Circuito de Jerez on 21-22 March.
