Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Dan­ish teenager Ni­co­lai Kjaer­gaard has been an­nounced as Fortec Mo­tor­sports’ first driver for the 2017 BRDC Bri­tish For­mula 3 Cham­pi­onship.

Kjaer­gaard fin­ished 13th in the Bri­tish F4 points in what was his first season of car rac­ing in 2016 with Fortec, record­ing a best fin­ish of fourth, and will re­main with the team in Bri­tish F3 next year after agree­ing to race one of its three ma­chines.

He has al­ready had a taste of the Bri­tish series’ Tatuus F3 car, hav­ing run with Fortec dur­ing the cham­pi­onship’s Au­tumn Tro­phy test ses­sions at Snet­ter­ton in Oc­to­ber.

“After a good first season in sin­gle-seater cars with Fortec Mo­tor­sports in the Bri­tish F4 Cham­pi­onship it felt nat­u­ral for me to stay with the team for an­other season,” said the 17-year-old. “I hope to con­tinue my de­vel­op­ment as a rac­ing driver and get some great re­sults dur­ing our 2017 Bri­tish F3 cam­paign.”
