Campos Racing has announced that Simo Laaksonen will join Petru Florescu, Matheus Iorio and Thiago Vivacqua for a full-season campaign in the Euroformula Open.

Adrián Campos, Team Principal of Campos Racing, explained: “I'm delighted to have Simo at Campos Racing. His performance was outstanding at Paul Ricard and I'm sure he will be a regular podium visitor. Besides, I'm convinced he will be fighting for the title at the end of the season.”
