Bastiaan van Nieuwenhuijzen

Bastiaan van Nieuwenhuijzen (born 5 April 1990 in Maaskantje, Netherlands) is a Dutch professional racing driver, who currently drives for Scuderia Lancia Alitalia in the Formula 2 Rejects World Race Series.

History

Van Nieuwenhuijzen started his single-seater career in Dutch Formula Ford, winning the title in 2011. He then progressed to Formula 3 Euroseries, spending two seasons driving for Motopark Academy.

Bastiaan van Nieuwenhuijzen is now a member of the Scuderia Alitalia young driver programme, and as a result was placed at their junior team Parma Corse for the 2014 Formula One Rejects Big Car Championship season. However, the series folded before he was able to make his race debut.

After Phil McCracken was sacked by Scuderia Alitalia, Bastiaan was called up to replace him at Kit-Kat Warriors' F2RWRS team for the Zandvoort Grand Prix. After struggling initially, he finally found pace in the last three rounds of the season, scoring his only points of the season in Spain, and unlucky not to finish in the podium during the season finale crashfest at Indianapolis.

With Kit-Kat Warriors quitting F2RWRS, he moved to his employer's own team Scuderia Lancia Alitalia for the 2015 season.
