A week earlier, Shannon Lugassy could not have taken part in the Formula V Challenge because of the age limit, but today, Thursday, he celebrates the required 13th birthday. And yesterday, Wednesday, the long journey from Geneva to Cham was worthwhile for him: Shannon easily managed a time that entitles him to participate in the field of the top 64 drivers in the qualification.
The young racer has already dedicated himself to racing as a child and regularly drives go-karts. With his racing in Formula V simulators, he takes another step up the sporting stairs.
13 years and two days: Shannon Lugassy is the youngest racer in the field of the 64 challengers.
