As his website notes, by the summer of 2017, Christodoulou was the number one ranked Briggs and Stratton Junior lite driver in North America, taking home two championship titles, more than 12 podium finishes and many prizes.
After that, Christodoulou was scouted by a Ferrari-affiliated development coach who recognized his talent and began to foster his learning in open-wheeled cars, namely the F-1600 and Formula 4.
The young Greek Canadian driver is presently participating in the F2000 Championship Series in the United States, having already racked up two poles and a win at Virginia International Raceway in 2018.
His big dream? To make it to Formula 1, where world-class superstar drivers compete and mesmerize millions of spectators across the globe with their talent.
Formula 4 is an open-wheel racing car category intended for junior drivers. There is no global-scale championship, but individual nations or regions can host their own competitions.
