Pieter Schothorst enters Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0

18 year old rising star Pieter Schothorst has become the one to watch as the Dutchman achieved early success as vice champion of the 2010 Dutch & Benelux Formula Ford (15 races, 3 wins, 9 podiums, 5 pole positions). Beginning his career in 2008 he went on to win the 2009 Dutch Champion Suzuki Swift Cup (12 races, 6 wins, 11 podiums, 3 pole positions). Previous success allowed him to move to single seater for Formula Ford, achieving a series of impressive race results including a podium place finish at the Formula Ford Festival in Brands Hatch.

The World Series by Renault 2011 season is forecast to be another opportunity to further increase Pieter’s race craft and ability, competing in the single seater class Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup. The mix of international circuits and a car with increased down force will provide an exciting new set of challenges for Pieter to excel.

New to the R-ace GP team, Pieter felt comfortable from the beginning, as they share his passion, professionalism and motivation for the sport. Driving for R-ace GP, a team closely associated to ART GP, Pieter will be alongside three competitive team mates who will help him push him to the next level in his career.

Look out for this contender. He will be the one to watch.

“2010 has been an amazing learning year for me. I have gained enough experience to be comfortable and fast in the Formula Renault. Thanks to the good winter testing program I’ve had with the team, I feel ready for the season. During the Winter I improved a lot on several aspects, physical, mental and driving points! And I am convinced that, with the help of R-ace GP, I can be very competitive during the season. I’m mega excited to drive and I’m strongly motivated to show what I’ve got. Racing on this level, with these cars on these tracks, is a dream come true for me. Thanks to my loyal sponsors McGregor and Ouwehands Dierenpark, I am able to do this. I have got high expectations for this season, and I want to compete with the best!

Pieter Schothorst, 2011.
