Fortec confirms Pentus for World Series
30 January 2009 – Mofaz Fortec Motorsport has welcomed Sten Pentus to the team as part of their line-up for the 2009 Formula Renault 3.5 Series. Pentus from Tallinn, Estonia joins the team after two successful days testing in the World Series test at Valencia in November last year, following a season in the Formula Renault 2.0 UK Championship.
Team principal Richard Dutton commented: "Sten came to us at the end of last year and made great progress in testing. He worked well with our engineering staff and quickly settled into the team to learn the car and circuit. We're looking forward to a successful year and from what we saw in testing, I'm sure Sten will achieve some strong results."
Pentus will continue testing on 10 and 11 March at Jerez, Spain.
