23 Mar Fernando Urrutia joins Douglas Motorsport
Mexican driver to compete in the 2015 Duo BRDC Formula 4 Championship.
Douglas Motorsport today announced that they have signed Mexican driver Fernando Urrutia to drive for them in the 2015 F4 series. This completes the race winning team’s line up, with Akhil Rabindra having signed recently.
Having won the National Kart Championship in 2008, Urrutia went on to win the Cuautla Championship in 2010 and was selected to represent the State of Morelos two years later in the ‘Mexican Heading to F1’ (Mexicano Rumbo a la F1) racing programme. Graduating into cars, he was named Rookie of the Year in 2013 after ending the F2000 campaign fifth overall. In 2014, Urrutia finished second in the PanamGP Spring Series, just being pipped for the title having taken pole position at every round. At the end of last season Fernando made his F4 debut, coming 6th in the Winter Series in preparation for this championship campaign.
