The latest news and stories from Roman De Angelis and De Angelis Racing.
At 9-years-old, Roman was victorious in his very first race. From that moment on he was destined to become a star in motorsports. As most superstar drivers do, Roman started his career in karting during which he participated in all major North American series.
In 2016 Roman made the leap to F1600 with Brian Graham Racing. His debut season in cars was impressive, seeing him capture five wins, Ontario Championship runner-up, third in the Quebec Super Series and taking home Rookie of the Year honours.
In 2017, Roman took another significant leap in his career as he moved up to the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Series Gold Class in both Canada and the United States with the renowned Mark Motors Racing team. In doing so, he became the youngest driver in GT3 Cup history at only 16-years-old. Roman’s season was epic as he captured the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada Gold Class Championship and was third overall in the GT3 Cup Challenge USA.
Roman’s 2018 season started out with a massive, career highlight win at Daytona in the IMSA Prototype Challenge Roar Before the Rolex 24, driving the No. Ligier JS P3 for Ansa Motorsports. 2018 also saw Roman graduate to the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Platinum division where he piloted the #1 Kell-Moss Road and Race entry in the US and the #78 Mark Motors Racing entry in Canada. In both the US and Canadian series he consistently finished on the podium giving him overall-runner up position.
Roman started out the 2019 season running in his first Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona with Audi Canada. He’s also returning to campaign the full US and Canadian Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge series in the Platinum division with teams Kelly Moss Racing and Mark Motors Racing.
