Eddie Cheever will be joining the already-confirmed Brandon Maisano in the PREMA line-up for the Formula 3 Italia 2012. Cheever, son of former F.1 racer Eddie Sr., is back to the series for his sophomore season but, together with Angelo Rosin and His team, is now ready to raise the bar even further.
Born in 1993, he made his open-wheel debut in 2009 by entering the Italian and Swiss F.Renault championship. During the following season, he provided an impressive performance in the F.ACI CSAI Abarth Series before stepping up to an equally positive F.3 season in 2011.
Angelo ROSIN – Team Principal
"Eddie had a very early open wheel start when he was just 15. His improvement is evident when we look at his seasons in F.Renault, Abarth and F.3. He's now ready to prove his full potential and showcase the experience gathered through a lot of racing activity, thus becoming one of the main stars in this season's series.”
Eddie CHEEVER Jr.
"I'm very proud of the agreement reached with PREMA POWERTEAM for the 2012 Italian Formula 3 Championship. The team, which is based in Vicenza, is one of the world's benchmarks in F.3 racing and being part of their group is something that makes me proud and motivated. I cant't wait to be on-track to start this brand-new program. I hope to gather some great results this season."
