Lynn steps up to British F3 with Fortec
21 October 2011 – Fortec Motorsports has confirmed its second driver for the 2012 British Formula 3 season, with Alex Lynn stepping up from their Formula Renault 2.0 UK arm as Champion in the lower category. The Englishman will partner Pipo Derani.
Lynn makes the climb after winning both the Graduate Cup and Winter Series of Formula Renault in 2010, before a dominant season in the 2.0 UK category this year.
“I think my decision to go with Fortec will prove to be the right one, especially as my engineer from Formula Renault, Russell Dixon, is moving up with me,” says the 18-year-old. “As long as we put in the same effort and hard work that we have this year, there’s no reason why we can’t challenge the boys at Carlin who have won the title for the past four years.”
Mick Kouros, Fortec’s Formula 3 Manager, also holds high levels of confidence.
“Alex has been with the Fortec family for two years now and it’s great to have him on-board for a third season,” Kouros says. “He has had great preparation in Formula Renault and he will more than cope with the step up to F3.”
