Roman Shane de Beer (born 6 October 1994) is a South African racing driver.

Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

Born in Johannesburg, de Beer began karting in 1999 and raced primarily in his native South Africa for the majority of his karting career, working his way up from the junior ranks to progress through to the Rotax Max category by 2010, and ultimately, winning the ROK Cup International Final.[1][2]

Formula Abarth[edit]

In 2010, de Beer graduated to single–seaters, moving into the newly–launched Formula Abarth series in Italy, with Scuderia Victoria World. He scored podiums at Imola, Varano and Vallelunga and finished the season ninth.[3][4] De Beer stayed in Formula Abarth for a second season in 2011 with the same team, when the series was split into two distinct sub-championships – European and Italian championships.[5] But after three rounds he ended his racing season with a podium at Misano. He finished the season eleventh in the Italian championship standings.[6]

Italian Formula Three[edit]

In 2012 De Beer continued his collaboration with Scuderia Victoria into the Italian Formula Three Championship.[7] He finished the season twelfth in the Italian championship standings.

GP3 Series[edit]

After missing the 2013 racing season, de Beer will drive for the Trident team in the GP3 Series in 2014.[8]
