Life’s pretty hectic when you’re a 16-year-old aspiring Formula 1 star, tearing around the racetracks of Europe. But for Italy-based Scot Gregor Ramsay it’s a case of hard work and skill sets beginning to pay dividends as he chases his ultimate goal. Ramsay is belying his youth by proving to be one of the front-runners in the hotly-contested Formula Renault ALPS Championship.
With more than 30 hot young talents from around the world – and even more on his forays into the Formula Renault Eurocup as a ‘wildcard’ entry – Ramsay is more than holding his own at the sharp end in his Euronova Racing machine. That’s no surprise, because his debut season in cars, the 2012 formula abarth FIA European series, saw him crowned as a race winner at Vallelunga with Jenzer Motorsport. He also scored a podium finish at Imola.
All this came after a lightning karting career, which included being signed by the ZIP Young Guns team of Martin Hines, driving for the official European Tony Kart junior team in World Series karting (at age 14) and then being assisted by no less than the Ferrari Driver Academy in gaining an international licence to race cars at the age of 15. Join Gregor’s main backers – Colin and Chris Weir – for what is bound to be an
action-packed ride to the top.
