Roy Nissany (born 30 November 1994), רוי ניסני in Hebrew, is an Israeli racing driver whom competes for Campos Vexatec Racing in the 2018 FIA Formula Two Championship.[1] Son of Chanoch Nissany, the first Israeli driver to take part at a Formula One Grand Prix weekend, Nissany arrived in F2 with a solid, if unspectacular, background in other junior series.[1]

Background

Nissany began karting at the age of four, before moving into car racing in 2010, joining the Formula Lista Junior series.[1] An eighth place finish in that Championship saw Nissany move into the ADAC Formel Masters for 2011, with Nissany proving to be a consistent points scorer.[1] A second season in the ADAC series saw Nissany register his first win, and secure a spot in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship for 2013.[1]

A Formula Focus

It proved to be a quiet debut season in F3 Europe for Nissany, with the Israeli racer only scoring points in the second half of the season.[1] Nissany was marginally more competitive in his second season, but ultimately decided to take up a seat in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series in 2015.[1] A stronger campaign there saw Nissany claim a maiden podium finish, prompting the Israeli racer to stay with the series into 2016.[1]

Nissany's second season in the newly renamed "Formula V8 3.5 Series" saw the Israeli racer claim his first wins since 2012, en-route to fourth in the Championship.[1] A third season saw Nissany claim another win, but slip to fifth in the Championship despite scoring more points.[1] Regardless, Nissany would gain a promotion at the end of the season, obtaining a seat in Formula Two for 2018.[1]

Formula Two History

Campos Vexatec Racing would offer Nissany a drive in the 2018 FIA Formula Two Championship, partnering the Israeli racer with Luca Ghiotto.[2] However, while Ghiotto proved to be a point scorer as expected, Nissany seemed to struggle on his debut weekend, not threatening the points at all in Bahrain.[3] It was an even less impressive display in Baku for Nissany, the Israeli racer retiring from both races with accident and gearbox damage.[4]
