The 18-year-old from Milton, Ontario is returning to both the team and series where he made his European debut in 2013, a season which saw Chudleigh introduced to some of the continents most renowned circuits such as Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps and Italy’s famed Autodromo Nazionale Monza.

2014 will prove to be no exception as the Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS Series schedule includes a return to both Grand Prix circuits as well as rounds in Imola (Italy), Pau (France), Red Bull Ring (Austria), Mugello (Italy) and Jerez (Spain).

“I’m thrilled to be back racing in Europe in 2014,” enthused Chudleigh.

Chudleigh is managed by Trevor Wickens and mentored on-track by his brother, former Marussia Racing Formula One test driver and 2013 Mercedes DTM race winner, Robert Wickens.

The 2014 Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS Series kicks off with a double-header round on the 6th April at the illustrious Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola, Italy.
