Robert Vișoiu (born 10 February 1996 in Pitești) is a racing driver from Romania.[1][2]

Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

At the age of six, Vișoiu first sat behind the wheel of a kart, the beginning of his karting career. He raced primarily in his native Romania up to 2009, becoming a two-time champion in the Mini Class and champion in the KF3 category. In 2009 Vișoiu switched to International KF3 competitions.[3]

Formula Abarth[edit]

In 2011, Vișoiu graduated to single-seaters, racing in the Formula Abarth series for Jenzer Motorsport. Race victory in Misano[4] and another two podiums saw him finish on sixth position in the Italian series.[5] In European Series the Romanian driver finished on fourth place with two race victories,[6] including win in series' finale at Circuit de Catalunya.[7]

GP3 Series[edit]

Vișoiu continued his collaboration with Jenzer Motorsport into the GP3 Series in 2012.[8] He finished the season fourteenth overall with twenty-four points, including a podium finish in Barcelona. In 2013, he will race for MW Arden alongside series debutants Daniil Kvyat and Carlos Sainz Jr.[9]

Formula Three[edit]

Despite his GP3 committents, Vișoiu also took part in the 2012 Italian Formula Three Championship with Ghinzani Arco Motorsport.[10] He finished the season ninth overall, scoring two podiums at the Hungaroring and winning the sprint race at the Mugello Circuit round. Vișoiu did not take part in the Misano or Imola rounds, owing to clashes with the Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps rounds of the GP3 Series season.

GP2 Series[edit]

Originally intending to leave motorsport to focus on his education, it was announced that Vișoiu will partake in the 2015 season, racing with Rapax.[11]
