PREMA Powerteam wishes to announce that Danish driver Oliver Rasmussen will remain with the team for the 2020 season and will move up to make his debut in the Formula Regional European Championship. The 19-year-old racer is set for a key step in a driver’s career, moving away from Formula 4 competition after a 2-year stint.
Last year, Rasmussen scored multiple podium finishes which highlighted a season-long improvement, and his 2019 performance left good expectations and chances for further gains.
He will start preparations for this new challenge within a friendly environment and with good knowledge of the team’s work methods. His goal will be to quickly master the 270-horsepower Formula Regional machinery and gain a head start.
Angelo Rosin – Team Principal: “It is great to retain Oliver for the 2020 Formula Regional season. It was a pleasure to work with him last year and we look forward to seeing him grow up even further as he moves up the FIA ladder after Formula 4. We will do our best to assist him through this passage and we are confident that he will prove an extremely valuable resource for the team in its title defense.”
Oliver Rasmussen: “I am thrilled to continue the collaboration with Prema stepping up to the 2020 Formula Regional European Championship. I had a positive progression last season with the Team and was able to learn a lot. This will be a new championship and therefore a new challenge for me but adapting to this car already knowing the Team can only be an advantage. As a Dane, I will do my best to keep the Danish flag at the top of this category. I would like to thank everyone who was involved in making this possible.”
