Fortec signs Danish star for MSA Formula
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.”
