Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Dan­ish karter Ni­co­lai Kjaer­gaard will drive for Fortec Mo­tor­sports in MSA For­mula this year.

The 16-year-old has a strong record in the Dan­ish Su­per Kart se­ries and has also starred in Ger­man cham­pi­onships.

He will now step up to cars, rac­ing along­side fel­low kart­ing grad­u­ates Alex Quinn and Ross Martin at Fortec in the TOCA sup­port cat­e­gory.

“I feel re­ally at home with Fortec and see the team as play­ing a key part in my de­vel­op­ment dur­ing the sea­son,” he said. “I know it will be a re­ally tough cham­pi­onship but I am look­ing for­ward to the chal­lenge ahead and can­not wait to get started.”

Fortec team man­ager Dan Mitchell added: “We tested Ni­co­lai through­out Novem­ber and De­cem­ber in Va­len­cia and he showed promis­ing signs. He learned and adapted quickly. Im­por­tantly, he re­ally showed he can be on the pace.”
