℗PRESTON HIRE Racing Formula 4 Driver Luis Leeds has been selected by Redbull as a member of the 2016 Redbull Junior Team

“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity that has been given to me by Redbull and Dr Marko. It has all come as a suprise and I’m grateful for this chance” Luis said. ” This is only a first step, it’s no guarantee that I will make it to F1. It’s now up to me to make something of this opportunity and return the faith that Dr Marko has see in me”.
“I also want to say a big thank you for everyone who has given me support in 2015. To Preston Hire and Peter O’Shea for their generous sponsorship and to Dream Motorsport for all the development this year’.
The next step for Leeds will be two day’s of testing in Valencia next week, then home for Christmas.
