ADD Management are proud to announce the partnership with up and coming racing star, Ido Cohen. The 17-year-old driver joins ADD Management, fresh from his debut campaign in single-seaters, with an exciting career ahead of him.

“These past few weeks I’ve undertaken two major changes to set me up for a strong 2019 - partnering with ADD Management and signing with VAR. I really can’t wait to get started and I am confident that mixing both top teams and the experience and knowledge of ADD will lead me to a strong career”
