Dutch team Van Amersfoort Racing has signed 17-year-old talent Keyvan Andres for the upcoming season of FIA Formula 3 European Championship. It will be the second season for Andres in the highly competitive junior championship.
Andres´ career started in karting before he went to North America to make his debut in single seaters. In 2016 he moved to Europe to compete in EuroFormula Open, followed by his first season in FIA Formula 3 European Championship in 2017. With the experience of one full season in FIA Formula 3 European Championship under his belt he is now aiming for more. “I’m ready for the next step in my racing career,” he said. “Last season was very useful in getting used to the latest spec Formula 3 car and learning the characteristics of the different tracks. Now I want to use this experience to be competitive together with Van Amersfoort Racing. I’m very much looking forward since Van Amersfoort Racing is one of the best teams in FIA Formula 3 European Championship.”
Frits van Amersfoort is happy to have Andres in his team. “We like to give Keyvan a warm welcome in our team. Considering he is only 17 years old, he has collected quite some experience in single seater racing around the globe. It is our goal to help him using his experience and talent to be competitive in the forthcoming European F3 season.”
