Closing out his rookie season in both open wheel racing and the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda, New York resident Dylan Tavella is set to compete at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) alongside some of his Formula One World Championship idols. Taking place in Austin, Texas this coming weekend, Tavella will pilot the #14 RideWithDylan.com / Diversified Wealth Management / Miller Vinatieri Motorsports machine in his quest for strong results in the season finale.
“I am really looking forward to COTA,” explains Tavella. “We had a bit of a breakthrough at the last round in New Jersey and if it wasn’t for some bad racing luck while running in the top-five, a podium result could have been in store.”
Tavella continues, “We are heading to Texas with the complete car covered with faces of people that donated to the Ride With Dylan program. It is a great feeling to see the donations come pouring in and the amount of money that we have raised for Children’s Leukemia. I can’t wait to announce the final amount.”
With the event taking place over the October 19- 21 weekend, Dylan will hit the track on Friday morning for the one and only practice session of the weekend. Qualifying will take place that afternoon before two separate races commence on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.
Following the event, Dylan Tavella will immediately begin preparation for the Richard Mille Young Talent Academy driver search. Taking place on December 11-12 in Italy, the program is aimed to help springboard a career of a young racer into the FIA French F4 Championship. More details will be forthcoming following the final round of the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda.
With 2019 racing plans yet to be determined, Dylan Tavella has confirmed that his Ride With Dylan efforts will continue next season.
