28.02.2017

A young “Flying Finn” will contest Euroformula Open´s Winter Series in Le Castellet with a Campos Racing-entered Dallara F312


Campos Racing will enter its four-car squad at Paul Ricard HTTT once again but the Alzira-based team will have its main novelty in the driver line-up. Petru Florescu, Matheus Iorio and Thiago Vivacqua will be joined by Simo Laaksonen on French soil.

18-year-old Laaksonen will make his debut in a Formula 3-based car in Le Castellet after spending the last three seasons in several Formula 4 series such as the ADAC Formel 4, the French F.4 or the SMP F.4 championships. Simo has multiple wins, podium finishes and pole positions under his belt and, with his debut in the Euroformula Open, this new case of Flying Finn will make another step towards the progression of his motorsport career.
