BRDC F4 Champion and latest BMW Junior driver Jake Hughes will drive Strakka Racing’s new Formula Renault 2.0 car at the team’s debut in the Hungary Eurocup round on the 11th/12th September.

Hungary marks the start of Strakka Racing’s increased presence in the World Series by Renault meetings after the Silverstone-based team committed to fielding a pair of cars in both FR2.0 alongside the existing FR3.5 combination of Matias Laine and Will Stevens. “Strakka needs no introduction to young single-seater drivers and it’s been brilliant to be in at the beginning of the FR2.0 campaign,” says Hughes. “We’ve done some productive testing, the atmosphere in the team is mint and I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens in Hungary.””

“Strakka Racing has entered the final rounds of the Eurocup as a wildcard entry ahead of a full season in 2015,” says team principal Dan Walmsley. “Having Jake in the car brings valuable and current experience in these cars. We know the tracks and but we don’t under estimate that this is a category where we have some learning to do. Jake’s input will be a real advantage as we ramp up to 2015.”

Preparations for 2015 are well underway with Strakka Racing’s in house simulator now running a FR2.0 model and the team confirming it would have a third chassis available should drivers wish to look at taking in Formula Renault races in NEC or any new UK series. “We have the capacity to run the cars if the drivers want to do it,” adds Walmsley.

Strakka Racing will shortly announce the second driver for Hungary. Drivers wishing to discuss testing or 2015 options with Strakka Racing, please contact tim.sugden@strakkaracing.com
