Group-A Racing is very pleased to announce its second full-time driver for the 2020 Formula 4 United States Championship Powered by Honda season. Jamaican international talent William Myers will drive the No. 62 Group-A Racing Formula 4 car outfitted in a special Jamaican themed livery to proudly represent his Jamaican supporters.
“I am so excited about having William join us this year,” said Group-A Racing team manager Jonathan Scarallo. “He was really quick in his first test back in November and he literally never dropped a wheel off or anything. He’s been able to provide our incredible engineers good feedback to help push the cars along and is a very welcomed addition. He will have a lot to learn as a rookie, but will be a very strong first year driver.”
Myers got his start in racing during the 2008 season at the age of 11, racing Rotax Minimax karts. He progressed throughout the karting classes racing in national series such as Rok Cup, Florida Winter Tour etc. In 2015, Myers made the jump to cars, racing a Honda Civic EG, winning his first race. From there, he moved up to Modified production 2 class, winning both the 2016 and 2018 Championship. Most recently during the 2019 season, Myers jumped up to the Radical SR3 class in the Caribbean championship. In only his rookie year, William won the championship. Now for 2020, Myers will make his pro debut and race full time in the United States with Group-A Racing.
“I am extremely happy to join the F4 U.S. Championship with Group-A Racing,” stated Myers. “With limited seat time before the beginning of season as well as it being my first time racing at any of these tracks means I will have a lot of learning to do this year. I have no doubt the Group-A team and I will work together to be great competitors this coming season. I’m looking forward to a lot of learning, racing and fun!”
Group-A Racing has reinvested into the team with a new Indy Car transporter for its F4 program. From all aspects of equipment and personnel, the New York-based team has been aggressive in the off season to ensure its drivers have every tool needed to succeed, and best experience for their sponsors.
Group-A Racing will have another full-time driver announcement being released soon, leaving only 1 more seat available for the season. The team has been scheduling more testing for other participants.
