Olson confirms to take on 2014 season once again armed with BELL
After going from 10th place overall in 2012 to 3rd overall in the coveted ‘International Category’ in 2013 after moving from Champ Motorsports to PS Racing from 2012 to 2013. The ‘International Category’ is reserved for the highest-level drivers in the series– in the very same car that took World Champion Kimi Raikkonen directly to Formula One.
While equipped with BELL racing gear, the California native aims to earn the distinction of being the first American driver to win a professional racing series in China.
“I’m honored to continue to be an ambassador for the BELL family and represent the company through next season, especially with its high-quality racing equipment line” said Olson. “BELL outfits champions - so its just added confidence to be equipped with the top race gear in the world.”
BELL helmets is currently providing head gear for Formula One [F1] World Champion Kimi Raikkonen, Red Bull driver Jean-Eric Vergne, and others.
“We’ve made huge strides this season, my second full season of Formula Renault....its amazing to go from struggling to make top 10 to get to top 3, thanks to the support, coaching, and setup knowledge of a triple champion, Pekka [Saarinen].
Next spring, we are looking to start on top and stay on top - to really rock 'n roll - to win the series. I have every confidence we will perform at the highest level both on the driving and technical side, thanks to PS Racing and the guidance of triple Formula Renault Champion, Pekka Saarinen.”
