Eduardo Barrichello will join DC Autosport and partners with Steve Bamford for the 2018 Formula 4 United States Championship "Powered by Honda".
After gaining first experience in the race car after testing, the 16-year-old can't wait for the season to get underway. „I love driving the F4 car. F4 is the beginning of everything for me and I want to do well at it“, explained Barrichello.
The Brazilian started his motorsport career in 2010, first gaining experience in national and international karting events. Most recently, the 16-year-old became Senior ROK vice-champion in the ROK Cup Florida Winter Tour.
In addition, Eduardo is the son of former Formula 1 driver Rubens Barrichello, who is also very excited for his son. „He is really talented in karts and I am sure he will do great in formula cars as well“, he said.
Furthermore, DC Autosport is a new team joining the US grid, founded by Don Conner. Conner, a key staff member of the successful Cape Motorsports operation, is a paddock veteran, and extremely motivated to continue Cape’s level of performance with his own team.
Conner will still work closely with Dominic and Nicholas Cape in a technical collaboration for 2018.
With two drivers signed for the year, the team still has one place available for its inaugural 2018 season. (please click here for further information if you're interested in joining the team.)
The duo began testing in January with the team in preparation for the season opener at Virginia International Raceway on April 27-29. The team will travel to NOLA Motorsports Park for an official
two-day test over the Easter weekend.
