Fortec signs Huertas for 2012 season
28 November 2011 – Carlos Huertas will be stepping up to Formula Renault 3.5 with Fortec in 2012. The Colombian makes the switch from British Formula 3, where he has competed for the last three years before winning for the first time in the 2011 finale. Having raced in F3 with Carlin, he makes the move to Fortec after impressing in a test session.
“We’re thrilled to have Carlos with us for next season,” says Fortec Team Principal Richard Dutton. “He has proven his racing credentials time and again and to be a top three finisher in such a competitive series is a fantastic achievement.
“He ended his British F3 season on a high, enjoyed a successful weekend in Macau and, after four days of testing, we’re very pleased with Carlos’ performance. I’m looking forward to a strong season in 2012 and I’m confident that Carlos will shine."
