Brazilian driver Thiago Vivacqua has been named as Italian outfit JD Motorsport’s second driver for the 2015 Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 season.
The 18-year-old Brazilian first appeared in FR2.0 racing in 2013, taking part in the final two rounds of the NEC championship.
He then joined forces with Fortec Motorsport for a full-time campaign in FR2.0 Alps. With a best finish of 14th, he ended up 26th in the standings.
Besides taking part in the Eurocup series, Vivacqua will also return to Alps for a sophomore year.
Vivacqua will join Russian driver Matevos Isaakyan in the team, while Formula Ford Denmark driver Mathias Kristensen is widely expected to complete the lineup.
