Martin loses British F4 seat with Fortec
British F4 driver Ross Martin will not race for Fortec Motorsports again this season.
The Allan Mcnish protege won a fully-funded drive after being crowned as Super FKS champion last year.
But the series collapsed earlier this year, leaving Martin struggling for budget.
The rookie driver was unable to race at Oulton Park last weekend, despite launching a crowdfunding campaign. “Ross won’t be back with us as we have now filled the seat,” said Fortec team manager Dan Mitchell. “He had a good start but when FKS went bust there wasn’t anything we could do.
“We kept the seat open this weekend to give him a chance to find the budget but he couldn’t.”
Jamie Caroline will fill the seat vacated by Martin following his switch from the rival Jamun team (see separate story, page 15).
