Haarlem, NL - Fly You Racing will be running Dutch drivers, Ricardo van der Ende and Hugo van der Ham in the formula Renault 2000 Europacup finals in Valencia.
The 1999 Formula Ford Festival winner will partner regular driver Hugo van der Ham who finished second in the last European round at Magny Cours. Ricardo has already tested with the team on Zandvoort the previous month.
Ronald Heiligers, team director; "Ricardo did a very good job when he tested with us on Zandvoort, so that's why we invited him to do the last round in Valencia. If he does well, we will be very interested in him for next year."
Ricardo was very happy that the team called him; "When they asked me to do that race, I immediately said yes. It is a great opportunity as I didn't do a lot of racing this year. I know the team well and I hope I can impress them".
FLY YOU Racing, also known as A.R. Motorsport, ran Ricardo's brother Jacky in six formula Opel races in 1999 where he won two races. They won the championship with Tomas Scheckter who is now official test driver for Jaguar in Formula 1.
58 drivers will be entered for the Formula Renault Europacup race. The first 18 drivers of each semi-final will go to the Final.
