Martin loses Bri­tish F4 seat with Fortec

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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).
