Damani Marcano: Spa Francorchamps, 8th/9th July

Damani Marcano, is unable to take part in the 8th & 9th July race weekend at Spa Francorchamps due to limited funding. In order to facilitate continued participation in the rest of the season, Damani’s team and management have made the difficult decision to withdraw him from the Volkswagen Racing Cup races at Spa, the most expensive race weekend of the year.

Damani’s next race is scheduled for Brands Hatch in the VAG Trophy on 23rd July.

Damani wishes all fellow competitors the best of luck for the weekend and looks forward to racing again towards the end of the month.

Damani was spotted by Team-HARD. Racing in 2014 and became the youngest driver they had ever signed. Despite being too young to hold a driving license and never having raced a car before he went on to set records in 2015. Aged 16, he became the youngest driver to finish in the points in the first round of a Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup season. He ended the year in the top-7 on pace, challenging experienced adult drivers who had spent the season leading the championship. As a guest driver in the VAG Trophy, Damani also became the youngest driver to qualify on the front row and obtain fastest lap in a race.
