ST. LOUIS – DC Autosport with Cape Motorsports has tabbed Teddy Wilson to pursue the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda.

The 17-year-old finished seventh in the series last year as a rookie in his first year of car racing, scoring seven top-five finishes in the F4 US Championship, including a pair of runner-up finishes at Virginia Int’l Raceway and New Jersey Motorsports Park.

“I’m super excited to be able to put Teddy in one of our cars this year,” said team owner Don Conner. “He’ll be a fantastic addition to the team, and I believe we can bring each other what we need to go after the 2019 F4 championship.”

Ahead of his move to car racing in 2018, Wilson enjoyed a successful karting career that included titles in the MSA British Cadet Championship and impressive performances at the international level with factory teams like CRG and Energy.

The Englishman was on the sidelines for all of 2017 due to budget restraints, but a re-focus on American motorsports resulted in immediate success in the World Karting Ass’n, as Wilson won the headline category at the organization’s annual Kartweek event at Daytona Int’l Speedway in December of 2017. This triumph set the tone for 2018 and Wilson’s first year in open-wheel formula cars.

Despite it being his rookie season in F4, Wilson was immediately up to speed and scored two poles and two podiums in his debut outing at Virginia Int’l Raceway last April. The remainder of the season featured seven top-five finishes among 11 top-10 results.

“I’m really pleased to join DC Autosport and, with their proven track record, I’m confident we are going to be fighting for the championship,” Wilson added. “I can’t wait to get the season started and I’m thankful for the opportunity that has arisen. The F4 US Championship has such a large field of competitive drivers and after my successful first season, I can’t wait to get back out on track again.”
