Mclaren Au­tosport BRDC Award win­ner Will Palmer will step up to the For­mula Re­nault Eurocup this year with the ART Ju­nior Team.

Palmer, who dom­i­nated the BRDC For­mula 4 Cham­pi­onship last term, will con­test the full Eurocup 2.0 con­test as well as the North­ern Euro­pean Cup se­ries with the French out­fit.

The 18-year-old won 12 of the 24 F4 races he con­tested last sea­son and made his Eurocup de­but dur­ing the Sil­ver­stone event.

Palmer said: “I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to rac­ing in Europe next year for the first time, es­pe­cially in a se­ries as com­pet­i­tive as the Eurocup.

“By com­bin­ing a pro­gramme in Eurocup with one in NEC I will have the op­por­tu­nity to learn a huge num­ber of high-pro­file cir­cuits in Europe, in­clud­ing Monaco, which will be an in­cred­i­ble track to race at.

“I have ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing with ART from Sil­ver­stone last year and it’s great to be with them. They have a long and suc­cess­ful his­tory in the se­ries and I am con­fi­dent we can hit the ground run­ning when the sea­son gets un­der­way.”
