Having built his craft in karting from a young age, Hunter Yeany is rapidly becoming one of America’s next great racing drivers.
At 11 years old, Hunter stepped up to compete on a national-level, with strong performances in USA SuperNationals Mini Swift and KA100 Junior class, before stepping up to X30 Junior karts in 2019. His talent caught the interest of Velocity Racing Development co-owner Dan Mitchell, this relationship spearheaded Hunter’s acceleration into car racing.
Joining the Velocity Racing team as development driver in Formula Regional Americas and US F4, the young Virginia-based racer built his experience both ingrained within the team at races, but also by taking part in several tests in F4 and F3 machinery. Making his single-seater racing debut, Hunter immediately impressed by scoring a hattrick of victories in his first time behind the wheel in the 2020 YACademy F4 Winter Series.
His winning ways only continued as he contested the FIA Formula 4 US Championship in 2020. Finishing the season with eight wins, six podium visits, five pole-positions across 15 races, Hunter became the youngest ever FIA F4 champion at the age of 15. Wrapping up the title before the final event, Hunter made the switch to contest the final round of FR Americas where he earned a respectable 4th place finish.
2021 sees Hunter tackle a full season in Formula Regional Americas Championship, together with a partial campaign in Indy Pro 2000.
