Double R Racing has partnered with Argenti Motorsport to run as Double R F4 with Argenti in British Formula 4 this year.
The tie-up between the title-winning F4 operation and Michael Meadows’ recently created karting team will include the GT racing star taking the role of F4 team manager.
Meadows, 32, was a race-winner in British Formula 3’s National Class before switching to sportscar racing.
He was Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion in 2012 and ’13, and won the coveted Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup title alongside Raffaele Marciello at Mercedes-Benz customer team AKKA ASP two years ago.
?Having spent the past 15 years racing myself, it?s exciting to now be taking on the reins [at Double R],” said Meadows.
“Double R has a fantastic track record in this championship and with their full support, I have no doubt that this season we will continue that.
?Argenti Motorsport are extremely proud to be working with Double R and, with our three drivers, I am excited for the season to begin.?
?I?ve learnt a lot throughout my career and I hope that our drivers and my team can take something from that.
“It?s interesting being on the other side and having the responsibility for the team, but the ambition is always the same, and that?s to leave everything on the track.?
British F4 Scholarship winner Casper Stevenson, who finished sixth in Ginetta Junior last year, is expected to be one of Double R’s three signings, and Reema Juffali has expressed interest in returning to the team for a second season.
Double R took Kiern Jewiss to the 2018 British F4 title, and added the teams’ title last year with Sebastian Alvarez, Louis Foster and Juffali. Team principal Anthony ‘Boyo’ Hieatt intends his team to continue that success under Meadows’ tenure.
?It is important for new faces to continue to arrive in the junior formula paddocks, which makes introducing Michael as the British F4 team manager this year an exciting announcement,? Hieatt said.
?Michael has already demonstrated just how valuable his knowledge and experience of 15 years of driving are and I am sure that this will be proven in his teams results over the season.?
