World Karting Champion Charlie Eastwood joins F4 with Douglas Motorsport for 2014

BRDC F4 Winter Championship winning team Douglas Motorsport have confirmed their first driver for the 2014 season, after agreeing a deal with 2012 Rotax Max World Karting champion Charlie Eastwood.

Eastwood has spent nine years in karting up to a world championship level, becoming Ireland’s most successful karter with titles including Rotax Max World Champion in 2012, Florida Winter Tour Champion and European Rotax Euromax champion in 2013.

The Belfast-based driver is no stranger to the Douglas Motorsport squad, with Team Principal Wayne Douglas racing with Charlie’s family in the early years of his own racing career.

The 18 year old has already sampled the Douglas BRDC F4 car at a test at Kirkistown and is looking forward to making his car racing debut in 2014. He commented: "Wayne has been a big part of my family before I was even born! It’s great now that we have this opportunity to race with his team. He’s got lots of experience and I have a lot of respect for him as he’s a very quick driver which allows him to easily help people like me to make this transition.

"I’ve kept a close eye on the BRDC Formula 4 championship this year and it’s become really successful. The series requires a lot from drivers themselves to win and I certainly hope I can be in that position. Having spent nine years karting, I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the F4 car at Grand Prix spec circuits like Silverstone in 2014!"

Team Principal Wayne Douglas enthused: "Charlie was very impressive for a newcomer to cars. I’ve known the Eastwoods for many years now and enjoyed a lot of success in karting myself racing with them in the early days of my own racing career. We’ve always kept in touch and we all now feel that the time is right for Charlie to make his transition from a hugely successful karting career to the UK’s premier single seater championship. I believe there are some exciting times ahead for both the team and Charlie in F4."
