Reign­ing For­mula Kart Stars cham­pion Ross Martin will race for Fortec in MSA For­mula this year.

The Al­lan Mcnish pro­tege won a fully-funded drive in the se­ries as a prize for claim­ing the For­mula One Man­age­ment­backed kart­ing ti­tle.

The Scot has com­pleted a sig­nif­i­cant amount of test­ing for the team at the end of last year and was quickly on the pace. “I’m look­ing for­ward to work­ing with Fortec, it is a cham­pi­onship-win­ning team,” said Martin. “The test in Va­len­cia was a great way to get to know ev­ery­one.”

He added that the prize drive to com­pete in MSA For­mula is a great op­por­tu­nity.

“There’s no other thing like it at any level in Bri­tish mo­tor­sport,” Martin said. “The MSA and Ford have put to­gether a great cham­pi­onship with phe­nom­e­nal driv­ers.”

Martin be­comes the se­cond driver con­firmed as part of Fortec’s line-up, with Rac­ing Steps Foun­da­tion-backed Alex Quinn al­ready an­nounced.
