Olli Caldwell stays with Prema for new Formula Regional European Championship

Infinity Sports Management and Prema Powerteam are proud to announce Olli Caldwell as the first confirmed driver for the 2019 Formula Regional European Championship. Graduating from a stellar debut season with Prema in both the ADAC Formula 4 and Italian Formula 4 Championships.

Showing great momentum in the closing part of the past year, the talented young Brit remained in contention for the Italian series title until the final round at Mugello. Ending the season with four wins and seven more podium finishes but also secured one more win and a total of four podium finishes in the German ADAC-sanctioned championship.

Moving to the next chapter of his career, Olli remains highly-motivated as both him and the team look forward to making a positive debut in the new European series, which will feature brand-new machinery. The Tatuus-built racecars will be powered by 1.75-litre Alfa Romeo engines and will present the drivers with a great challenge. Having entered both the Italian and German Formula 4 championships Olli has good knowledge of venues featured in the 2019 schedule, which will enable him and the team to speed up the car development.

Angelo Rosin – Team Principal:

“We are looking forward to the coming season and having Olli with us again will provide us with the stability we need to face a brand-new challenge in the Formula Regional European Championship. He really surprised us in 2018 in terms of speed and consistency which is definitely what we need this year too. We hope to see him carry that consistency and momentum into the season ahead in order to be highly competitive right from the start.”

Olli Caldwell:

“I am super excited to be staying with Prema Powerteam for the new season in FIA Formula Regional European Championship after my success with them in Formula 4. We will be looking forward to the same and more!”
