Vaidyanathan to compete in FR 2.0 Nurburgring NEC round

Indian driver Ameya Vaidyanathan will make his Formula Renault 2.0 NEC debut at Nurburgring this weekend in the sixth round of the championship.

Vaidyanathan will be driving for the British team MGR Motorsport which currently fields driver Colin Noble in the series.

MGR team owner, Mark Godwin, announcing the Indian's entry said: "Ameya [Vaidyanathan] began testing with the team recently in the Formula Renault and we saw some immediate improvements with his driving and results in the UK."

"Whilst we have sensible expectations for the coming weekend at the famous Nurburgring circuit, we are confident that Ameya [Vaidyanathan] will make a good impression and hopefully enjoy his first experience of racing a Formula Renault outside the UK," he added.

The 19-year-old Indian already competes in the BRDC F4 and MSA Formula championship in the UK and FR 2.0 NEC will be his first single-seater appearance outside the British territory.

Vaidyanathan comes off to Nurburgring after two good weekends in MSA and BRDC, where he scored his best finish (10th) and two third-place finishes (race one and race two) respectively.

The MGR driver joins fellow Indian Jehan Daruvala in the NEC championship. However, there was no confirmation whether Vaidyanathan will also compete in the season finale at Hockenheim next month.
