RP Motorsport Racing Reveals Rookie Competitors

By  | 

Set for their first season of Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires competition, RP Motorsport Racing revealed their pair of rookie drivers for their Tatuus PM-18s.

“We want to face our first season in the Pro Mazda Championship in the best way and we have chosen two drivers that we know well and who will certainly be able to show off their quality,” RP Motorsport Racing team principal Fabio Pampado said. “It will be a very exciting adventure: the championship has a wide visibility thanks to the partnership with INDYCAR, and being together with the new Tatuus chassis, the bearer of our country in this competition, makes us very proud. We know that the road will not be easy, but our team is ready to face this new challenge in the best way.”

Harrison Scott reunites with the Italian group after winning the EuroFormula Open title with 12 victories and 11 poles in 14 events.

“It’s great to land in America and arrive in such an exciting context as the Pro Mazda Championship, a series that has launched so many young drivers over the years and I hope I can take with the team a lot of satisfaction,” the 21-year-old said. “Last year was fantastic, but now we will have to start again with the same hunger of successes: we are aware that there will be a lot of work to do because everything will be new for us, but we are ready and determined to face this new challenge!”

He will be joined by Lodovico Laurini, who will become the first Italian driver to race in Pro Mazda.

“Being able to race in America is a fantastic opportunity and for me it’s a dream that comes true,” the 20-year-old said. “I have worked so hard over the last few years and this chance is an important step for my career. My main goal will be to grow further, gain valuable experience and learn all the new circuits, working hard day after day. Also being the first Italian to participate in this championship is another reason of pride, and I wish to thank RP Motorsport Racing team for the trust, my family and all those who support me in this adventure. I can’t wait to start!”
