Heading into the final weekend of the 2020 Formula Regional Americas Championship Powered by Honda, HMD Motorsports has added Marco Kacic to their lineup. The 17-year-old Canadian will be joining the HMD Motorsports trio in a fourth entry for the final event at Circuit of the Americas over the October 23-25 weekend.
While the upcoming weekend will be Kacic’s debut FR Americas event, he is no stranger to the HMD Motorsports team or car. Earlier this year, Kacic completed a series of private tests with the team at Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois in the Ligier JS F3 chassis. Over the course of multiple test days, Kacic settled into the car and was able to improve his comfort, speed and feedback to the engineering team.
“I am excited to join HMD Motorsports for the final event of 2020,” expressed Marco Kacic. “To watch their success this season with David Malukas, Logan Cusson and Kyffin Simpson, I am ecstatic to be part of HMD. A huge thank you to everyone who has helped me get here. Thank you, Jerry Kroll, Lordco Auto Parts, Meccanica, Live Life Full4ward, New Balance, Kartplex and of course HMD Motorsports for the opportunity.”
New to the series, he is certainly not new to open wheel formula racing. Just last year, Kacic was crowned Champion in the F4 Formula Pro USA Championship Presented by ExclusiveAuctions.com where he won seven of the ten races and earned nine podiums and five pole positions. Kacic has been successful in every series he has entered, winning multiple races and championships, and he is expecting nothing less in FR Americas.
While the event is closed to the public, fans of Marco Kacic and HMD Motorsports can still follow along all weekend. Live timing will be available on Race-Monitor.com or with the Race Monitor app. A live stream of all three races will also be available on FANRacing.live.
