Campos Racing has announced Francesco Braschi as its second driver for the upcoming inaugural season of Eurocup-3.
The championship, which will use a car based on the Tatuus T-318 chassis but with updated, lighter bodywork and with a tuned up engine, has been created by the promoters of the Spanish Formula 4 championship and will take place in Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands. Four of the five teams signed up to the series are also Spanish.
Braschi started his car racing career in Italian F4 in 2020, then contested four different championships in the category during 2021. Last year he stepped up to Formula Regional, coming 22nd in the Asian championship and 26th in the European one, then began this year by doing two FRegional Middle East rounds.
“I am obviously very excited to join Campos Racing,” said Braschi. “Adrian [Campos Jr] has the highest culture of motorsport and experience as winning team principal. This is a great opportunity for me, because Campos Racing has shown many times that it is one of the best place for a young driver to be.
“I intend to make the most of this opportunity, while doing the best possible job for the team. I would like to thanks Adrian and all the team and I’m sure it is going to be an intense and successful season for us together.”
The 18-year-old Italian is the team’s second signing, following FRME podium-finisher Tasanapol Inthraphuvasak, and Campos is expected to announce at least one more driver for Eurocup-3.
“I would like to extend a warm welcome to Francesco as new driver of Campos Racing for the first season of the Eurocup-3 championship,” Campos team principal Adrian Campos Jr said.
“It’s a huge challenge for everybody as we will be facing up a new car, a new series but we feel confident to immediately fight success. We are putting together a strong team and Francesco is an important part of this aim. We are already working in our facilities to rise to the top in the Eurocup-3.”
