Rudy Camarillo

20 year old mexican Rodolfo “Rudy” Camarillo is set for an endurance racing debut at the Rolex 24 Hour race at Daytona International Speedway, Florida, at the end of the month of January. Camarillo, who raced in the Panam GP Series from Ferrari Driver Academy and in the Latam Challenge Series in 2012, will drive a Mazda RX-8 in the GT category at Daytona, with three other mexican young talents: Carlos Peralta from the NASCAR Toyota México Series,  Ricardo Pérez de Lara, who raced at the Súper Copa Telcel SEAT León and young-gun Martín Fuentes, who did a few races with Camarillo both in the Panam GP Series and the Latam Challenge Series. The team behind these mexican racers will be Racers Edge Motorsports.

Camarillo finished third in the Latam Challenge Series standings behind champion Francisco Cerullo from Venezuela and André Solano. He was fourth in the Panam GP Series behind Sebastián Merchan from Ecuador, Cerullo and Gerardo “El Grillo” Nieto from México.

“This is a very important race that puts together drivers of very high reputation with young drivers like us, so we are going to deal with it with a lot of dedication and effort” said Camarillo.

We just want to tell Camarillo that he better stays far from the Ocean Deck and the WingHouse at Daytona. One never knows.
