Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Ford MSA For­mula rookie driver Alex Quinn se­cured his maiden car rac­ing win at Doning­ton Park last week­end, in only his fourth race.

The 15-year-old Fortec Mo­tor­sports driver claimed a lights-to-flag vic­tory in the open­ing race in Le­ices­ter­shire hav­ing started on pole po­si­tion, de­spite a hail­storm just be­fore the start of the race cre­at­ing dif­fi­cult con­di­tions.

“That was amaz­ing to take my first win,” said the Rac­ing Steps Foun­da­tion-backed driver. “It was re­ally tough with the weather chang­ing and I was a bit ner­vous. But I was quick in test­ing and that gave me a con­fi­dence boost.”

Fortec boss Richard Dut­ton added: “It was very im­pres­sive con­sid­er­ing it was only his sec­ond week­end in cars.”

Quinn was one of the driv­ers in­volved in an in­ci­dent in a chaotic sec­ond race and was sixth in race three. He is sixth in the points and leads the rook­ies.
