Career history[edit]

Single-seaters[edit]

Félix da Costa began his career in karting, and moved into racing cars in 2004 when he competed in the Formula BMW UK championship, where he raced for two years for Carlin Motorsport, finishing 13th and 10th in the championship standings.[1] He moved to Formula Renault for 2006, competing in the Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup (which his brother Antonio won in 2009) and the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0.[1]

Touring cars and GT[edit]

Having failed to win a race in single-seaters during three years, Félix da Costa moved to the Spanish SEAT León Supercopa in 2007, finishing ninth.[1] He moved to the new SEAT León Eurocup for 2008, where he also finished ninth.[1] His performances at Motorsport Arena Oschersleben were enough to win a guest drive with World Touring Car Championship team SUNRED Engineering for the Race of Italy at Autodromo Nazionale Monza. For 2009 Félix da Costa is competing in the Portuguese Touring Car Championship and the International GT Open. He will also compete in the European Touring Car Cup at Braga for British Touring Car Championship team Bamboo Engineering, in a Chevrolet Lacetti alongside team regular Harry Vaulkhard.
