¡Hola!

Franco Colapinto is a 17-year-old racing driver from Argentina, racing in the Formula Renault Eurocup. 

Franco was only 9 years old when he first turned the wheel of a kart, and it didn’t take long for him to realise that this is what he wanted to do.

Colapinto won the Argentinian Championship in 2016 and again in 2018, alongside a victory in the 2018 Youth Summer Olympics

In 2018 Franco landed in Europe to begin his single seater journey, by entering only the final round of the FIA Spanish F4 season and took a win and a second place, proving he was ready for a full season attack. Fernando Alonso’s team FA Racing by Drivex spotted the then 15-year old’s talent and signed him up for the 2019 season.

One year, eleven victories, 13 podiums and 10 pole positions later Colapinto was crowned Spanish F4 champion, proving that he is definitely one to watch.

During the 2019 season Franco became a Bullet Athlete that allowed him to focus only on his racing, and helped him to secure a seat in the 2020 Toyota Racing Series.

The young Argentinean has started his 2020 season by securing his second single seater title after taking the rookie championship win in the 2020 Castrol Toyota Racing Series, adding another race win, a pole position and eight further podium finishes to his tally.

For the second leg of the 2020 season Franco Colapinto returned to Europe to compete in the Formula Renault Eurocup with MP Motorsport.
