The 16-year old Réunionese racer joins the Banbury-based outfitoff the pack of two seasons in the French F4 Championship; first in the junior category, where four class victories and 12 podiums secured the Vice-Champion honours.
He would repeat the feat in the overall championship in 2019,taking four wins – including victory at the iconic Pau Grand Prix, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and a double win at former F1 venue Magny-Cours, to end the season as runner-up.
De Gerus also represented Team France in the F4 category of theFIA Motorsport Games in Vallelunga, Italy, last autumn and that experience,combined with a thorough winter testing programme, will put him in good stead ahead of his rookie campaign in the Eurocup.
In 2020, the series will continue to visit a host of Europe’s most-renowned and challenging venues, including Monza, Silverstone,Nurburgring, Barcelona and a support slot at the world-famous Monaco Grand Prix.
Arden head into the campaign on a high after registering a third finish in the Teams’ standings in 2019, with the aim to build on that result this time around.
The season kicks off at Monza on 18-19 April, 2020.
