Single-seater man Moore gets Mclaren gig
Former BRDC Formula 4 star Struan Moore will move into GT racing this year after securing a place on the Mclaren GT Driver Academy scheme.
Moore, 20, will handle a Mclaren 650S GT3 in a European series alongside fellow newcomer Alex Fontana from GP3, and Mclaren scheme returnee Andrew Watson.
While Moore’s exact campaign has yet to be determined, Mclaren has a history of running its young drivers in Britain. It placed Northern Irishman Watson and Scotsman Ross Wylie in British GT with the Von Ryan Racing team last year.
Moore was fifth in BRDC F4 in 2014 before contesting the Japanese F3 Championship last year.
Mclaren GT boss Andrew Kirkaldy said: “Despite being young, drivers hungry for a new challenge are moving from single-seaters with a wealth of experience and a very high level of skill.”
