PREMA Racing announces that Brazilian driver Rafael Camara will join the team for the 2022 Formula 4 season, making his debut in single-seater racing.
Born in 2005, Camara made his international karting debut in 2016 before moving to Europe and quickly impressing in the 60 Mini class. Moving first to OKJ and then to OK, he honed his skills in the following years, showing increasing promise as the races went by.
The 2021 season saw Camara make an outstanding breakthrough by winning the WSK Super Master Series and the WSK Champions Cup. Later in the year, he was also selected to join the Ferrari Driver Academy.
Camara's main program will be in the Italian Formula 4 Championship. However, more races will be added to increase his experience and maximize his learning opportunities.
Angelo Rosin - Team Principal
"We are delighted to welcome Rafael to our team. He achieved impressive results in karting, and we are looking forward to having him with us for his car racing debut. It is always challenging for a driver to enter a new form of competition, but the fact of having a brand-new car will maybe serve as an equalizer to level the playing field with the more experienced rivals. Still, entering such a competitive environment will be demanding, and we do everything in our power to help Rafael in the transition.”
"I am very excited in joining PREMA for the upcoming season. PREMA's tradition and numbers speak for themselves. There could not be a better place for my debut season in open wheel racing and I’ll do my best to learn as much as possible from the team. Racing for PREMA is a remarkable task and I'd like to thank Grazia, Angelo and Rene for giving me this opportunity.”
