The demise of FKS has left a ques­tion mark over whether Ross Martin ( right) can com­plete the Bri­tish F4 sea­son.

The Fortec Mo­tor­sports driver was Su­per FKS cham­pion last year and won a fully funded drive in F4 as part of a re­la­tion­ship be­tween the cat­e­gories.

“His seat is se­cure for now,” said Fortec team man­ager Dan Mitchell, who added that Martin would have to raise the bud­get to en­sure he fin­ishes the sea­son.

“There are four weeks un­til the next round and a gap af­ter the next two so there’s a long time to try and sort it out. We are con­fi­dent we can keep him.”

Al­lan Mc­nish pro­tege Martin said: “I’m dis­ap­pointed [that FKS has col­lapsed] but I’m very grate­ful for how they’ve helped my ca­reer.”

He fin­ished third in the fi­nal race at Don­ing­ton Park but had a tough time at Thrux­ton, with a brace of ninth place fin­ishes.
