Almost three months before the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine season start, the number of drivers grows up.
Following the last December announcement of Gabriele Minì renewal, team ART Grand Prix welcomes Mari Boya.
The 17-year-old Spaniard racer has won several national titles as well as the IAME Winter Cup in 2018 and the prestigious FIA Karting Academy Trophy the following season. In 2020 Boya made a remarkable debut in single-seaters as he fought for the Formula 4 Spanish title and took three wins and fourteen podiums in the process. Last season, Mari took the next step by joining the European series, where he became the 4th best rookie.
“From the end of last year, it was obvious to us that to complete in a second year we had to benefit from the best possible conditions. ART Grand Prix has often dominated the championship and so we decided to try our luck with them and their incredible track record. During the off-season tests, I was immediately won over by the team and I felt very comfortable behind the wheel. I am therefore very happy to work with ART Grand Prix and impatient for the season to begin, to find myself in race weekend conditions. The goal is always to win, but I’m waiting to see how the start of the season goes and how the season unfolds to assert my ambitions. A top 3 must be the minimum result. I want to thank Monlau Motorsport, RACC, Oeme and the Spanish federation.”
“Mari has had a steady and solid rise from a young age and his FRECA stunts in 2021 have made us interested in him. He did a high-quality job during winter testing and he used his collaboration with the technical team to display a high level of performance. It is therefore with much confidence we will accompany him for his second year in this championship, with the common ambition of aiming for the top positions.”
