LINDENHURST, N.Y. – Group-A Racing has announced its second full-time driver for the Formula 4 U.S. Championship powered by Honda season.
Jamaican driver William Myers will race the No. 62 Group-A Racing Formula 4 car, outfitted in a special Jamaican-themed livery to proudly represent his home supporters.
“I am so excited about having William join us this year” said Group-A Racing team manager Jonathan Scarallo. “He was really quick in his first test back in November and he literally never dropped a wheel off or anything. He’s been able to provide our incredible engineers good feedback to help push the cars along and is a very welcomed addition.
“He will have a lot to learn as a rookie, but will be a very strong first year driver.”
Myers got his start in racing during the 2008 season at the age of 11, racing Rotax Minimax karts. He progressed throughout the karting classes racing in national series such as Rok Cup and the Florida Winter Tour.
In 2015, Myers made the jump to cars, racing a Honda Civic EG and winning his first race. From there, he moved up to Modified production 2 class, winning both the 2016 and 2018 Championship.
Most recently, Myers jumped up to the Radical SR3 class in the Caribbean championship last season. In his rookie year, William won the championship. Now for 2020, Myers will make his pro debut and race full time in the United States with Group-A Racing.
“I am extremely happy to join the F4 U.S. Championship with Group-A Racing,” said Myers. “With limited seat time before the beginning of season, as well as it being my first time racing at any of these tracks, I will have a lot of learning to do this year, but I have no doubt the Group-A team and I will work together to be great competitors this season.
“I’m looking forward to a lot of learning, racing and fun!”
