The 19-year-old youngster from León, Mexico made his single-seater debut in 2020 after winning the prestigious Richard Mille Young Talent Academy competition, proving to be the best out of seventeen talented karting drivers to secure himself a seat in French F4.
Following a fruitful learning year in Formula 4, Rafael moved on to Formula 3 machinery for the 2021 season, running a double campaign in Euroformula Open with Van Amersfoort Racing, securing 5 podiums to date and FIA Formula 3 with HWA Racelab.
Villagomez is now ready to take the next step in his career and has turned to Bullet to support him on this journey.
“I could not be happier to be joining the Bullet team and I look forward to working with them, the success they have achieved with all the drivers in 2021 is incredible. I am sure we can achieve the same together.
I would also like to personally thank Tom Claessen and all his work as a Manager with me over the past seasons. As I look back at our time together, I feel incredibly grateful and proud for everything we have accomplished. I look forward to watching him achieve great things as a Team Manager with VAR and hopefully collaborate again in the future.”
Maria Catarineu, Director, Bullet Sports Management:
“We are delighted to welcome Rafael to Bullet Sports Management. He’s an exciting young talent with great potential and a perfect addition to our team. We can’t wait to start working with him and see what we can achieve together.”
Rafael’s 2022 programme will be revealed in the coming weeks.
