CALAN Wil­liams will kick start his in­ter­na­tional racing ca­reer next month when he com­petes in the F3 Euro­for­mula Win­ter Series with Fortec Mo­tor­sports.

The series con­sists of a two-day of­fi­cial Euro­for­mula Open test on Fe­bru­ary 15 and 16 at the Span­ish F1 Cir­cuit de Barcelona-Catalunya be­fore head­ing to Wil­liams’ first in­ter­na­tional race meet­ing at Cir­cuit Paul Ri­card in France, the venue of this year’s French F1 Grand Prix.

The series then rounds off with another two-day of­fi­cial test at Jerez back in Spain.

All Euro­for­mula Open teams will be tak­ing part in the Win­ter Series, with Wil­liams rep­re­sent­ing Fortec along with Ro­ma­nian driver Petru Florescu and Amer­i­can Yves Bal­tas.

The Edge­wa­ter 17-year-old will leave Aus­tralia to base him­self in the UK early in Fe­bru­ary and will spend sev­eral days each week at the team base in Daven­try train­ing and prac­tis­ing on the sim­u­la­tor be­tween the sched­uled test­ing and racing.

“I am so ex­cited about com­menc­ing my For­mula 3 pro­gram in Europe and I can’t thank Mick Kouros and Fortec enough for the in­cred­i­ble op­por­tu­nity that they have pro­vided me”, he said.

“This is for­ward.” an amaz­ing step
