British F4 racer Alex Quinn steps up to the BRDC British F3 Championship with front-running outfit Lanan Racing.
Quinn, in his second full season of single seater racing, has secured three victories in British F4 so far this season and lies fourth in the standings. Prior to this year, he enjoyed a very successful maiden single seater campaign in 2016, securing the British F4 Rookie Class championship with 16 class wins alongside three overall wins.
The 16-year-old started karting in 2011 in the Honda Cadet class while also racing in the MSA Super One Championship as a guest driver at the Clay Pigeon round, where he impressed by finishing fifth overall.
Invited to join the Fusion Motorsport team at the end of 2011, Quinn competed in the Formula Kart Stars and Super One British Championship with the team in 2012, finishing both championships in seventh overall and was the British Cadet Rookie champion, as well as securing the South West Championship in the Cadet class.
He secured championship glory in 2013 with dominant victories in the Kartmasters GP Plate and British Open Championship with further success in the Little Green Man Championship, while just missing out on two titles in Super One.
He moved up into the Junior category of karting in 2014 with Coles Racing, and was a multiple race winner in Super One Minimax, taking the title race to a final race showdown, while finishing fifth overall in the Rotax Euro Challenge and second in the Rotax International Open, firmly establishing himself on the European scene.
Moving up to the KF-Junior category in 2015, Alex raced for CRG-SPA in the CIK-FIA European Championship, CIK-FIA World Championship and the WSK Final Cup, finishing fifth in the pre-final for the World Championship and seventh overall in the WSK Final Cup.
At the tail end of 2015, his karting form saw him invited to participate in the Racing Steps Foundation selection process, which he won, allowing his graduation to cars in 2016, which has seen him continue his front-running success.
