Formula Nordic Junior champion Viktor Andersson has been signed by Jay Howard Driver Development for a season in United States Formula 4.

The 16-year-old graduated from the Swedish junior karting scene in 2018 to race in FNordic with MA:GP, and in his second season finished second overall in the points and as champion in the Sweden-based Junior classification.

Andersson’s title-winning Formula Renault 1.6 car is now for sale for any driver wanting to enter FNordic.

?I am really looking forward to starting my international career in United States F4 with Jay Howard Driver Development,? said Andersson.

?It?s a new country, new car, new tracks and new team so there will be many new things for me to learn.

“But I am super motivated and excited for the challenge and hopefully we will be fighting for podiums.?

JHDD has 10 race wins from three years in the series, and has signed race-winner Christian Bogle, Nick Persing and Nolan Siegel to form a four-car line-up this season.

Team owner Jay Howard said: ?Viktor is an excellent addition to our team. He?s clearly quick, and he?s got a great attitude which means he?s going to fit in perfectly with the team as a whole.

?I?m looking forward to all of our drivers pushing each other in a positive way this season, working together with the team and ultimately delivering positive results out on the track. Viktor is certainly going to be a factor this season.?

Also joining the US F4 grid is Mexican karting champion Gil Molina, who will make his full-time single-seater debut with Jensen Global Advisors. Molina has already raced the Ligier F4 car used in the series in a club event.
