McLaren Racing, a British auto racing conglomerate, has signed Nigerian-American Kart racing prodigy Ugo Ugochukwu to a long-term contract to help him through racing’s junior categories.

In a quote, the Formula One team said that the arrangement gives them the option to sign Ugochukwu to a race contract in the future.

 

“We’ve been watching Ugo’s success with curiosity,” said McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown.

 

“So when the opportunity to sign an agreement with him became available, we had no hesitation moving on it.”

McLaren describes the move as a multi-year contract with Ugochuku and could tie him to a further multi-year racing deal.

 

Ugochukwu, whose mother is Nigerian and father American, won the 2020 FIA OK-Junior European championship and has graduated to the senior class this season.

 

F1 has not had an American driver since Alexander Rossi took part in five races for the Marussia team in 2015.

The last American to win a Grand Prix was 1978 world champion Mario Andretti – at that year’s Dutch Grand Prix.

 

McLaren F1 team principal Andreas Seidl said: “Ugo is a promising young talent with strong development prospects.

 

“While he is still early in his career, it is clear he has the ingredients to be successful in the sport.

 

“This signing reflects our refocused approach to identifying and supporting new talent, away from a formal young driver programme to a more tailored basis.”

 

Ugochukwu said: “I’m honoured to be signed by such an iconic team as McLaren Racing so early in my career.

 

“To have the support of McLaren is fantastic and what any young driver dreams of. I’m focused right now on developing as a driver and racer, so having McLaren by my side can only help me on and off the track.”
