About Nico

In the spring of 2016 at the tender age of 11, Nicholas (Nico) Roman Christodoulou burst onto the competitive kart racing scene after winning the Intrepid Kart scholarship from Goodwood Kartways for top points in their popular Arrive and Drive series.  That same year, he claimed several accolades including Pfaff Motorsports Junior Driver of the Day, Professional Racing Ontario’s Most Improved Driver of the Year and the Team FMR 2016 Rookie of the Year award.

 

By the summer of 2017, Nico was the #1 ranked Briggs and Stratton Junior lite driver in North America, taking home 2 championship titles, over 12 podium finishes and a slew of cash and prizes.  That same summer, he was scouted by a Ferrari-affiliated development coach who recognized his talent and began to foster his learning in open-wheeled cars, namely F-1600 and Formula 4.

 

At 12 years old, Nico learned fast and quickly drew attention as the youngest F4 driver in North America, possibly even worldwide.  In November 2017, CBS News Austin dubbed him as an F1 Prodigy and the Future of Formula 1 in their televised coverage of one of his test days. Travelling to various tracks around the US, track owners and fellow drivers are continually impressed with not only his speed and innate talent for handling the track, but his mature, cheerful and humble nature.  Nico currently holds the title of 4th fastest lap time ever recorded at Harris Hill Raceway, Texas, and is still committed to usurping the top seat driver, Max Papis, for the #1 spot.

 

Currently, Nico is participating in the F2000 Championship Series in the United States, having already racking up 2 poles and a win at Virginia International Raceway on June 2 & 3, 2018.  He is preparing for his official F4 debut in the US or Mexican F4 Championship Series next year.

 

Destination:  Formula 1.  Stay tuned as Nico makes his way up the ranks!
