Linus Lundqvist rejoins Double R Racing for Euroformula Open title attack

Infinity Sports Management are delighted to welcome reigning BRDC British Formula 3 champion Linus Lundqvist to their growing roster of talented young driver talent. Ahead of the 2019 season, Infinity are excited to announce that the Swedish driver, will contest the Euroformula Open series, together with Double R Racing. Joining the team with whom he claimed his title victory last year, Linus will mount his attack on the title, in the F3-based series.

19-year-old Linus recently experienced the Euroformula Open format during the championship’s mini winter series at Paul Ricard (France), winning one of the two races in the process. This success provides good grounding for his full-season campaign which kicks off at the French circuit just next month.

Extending his relationship with UK-based team Double R Racing, who he has raced with in British F4 and F3 respectively in the last two years, Linus looks ahead to his latest challenge:

I’m really excited to have this programme in place and to continue working with Double R for another year. We have formed a strong relationship over the last two years and managed to pull off a successful title bid last season, and I head into this new challenge determined to keep up that momentum.
It will be my first season of racing on the tracks of continental Europe, but my clear aim is to fight for another championship. I would like to thank Double R for keeping me on and my backers for their continued support. Let’s bring home some more silverware!

Gary Catt, Director of Infinity Sports Management adds:

We are delighted to welcome Linus to our stable of drivers. Linus’s track record speaks for itself, he was a race winner in the British F4 series and then he won the British Formula 3 title in 2018. Linus has had great success with Double R and we are sure it will continue in the F3 Open category this season.

Team Principle, Anthony Hieatt welcomes Linus to their 2019 title campaign:

Everyone at the team is ecstatic that Linus will be a Double R driver again this year. We’ve achieved so much together over the past couple of seasons, culminating in winning British F3 last year, so it’s going to be great to continue that partnership together into Euroformula Open. He’s a fantastic driver, bags of commitment and ability, and I’ve got every confidence he will be one of the true frontrunners from the first round.

Boasting an 18-race calendar, which takes place across many of the European Formula 1 tracks.  The 2019 Euroformula Open season launches at Paul Ricard on 27-28 April, with the campaign reaching its climax at Italy’s famed “Temple of Speed” Autodromo Nazionale Monza, in October. The calendar also includes the esteemed Grand Prix de Pau street race in northern France, in which Linus will get his first-ever taste of street-circuit racing.
