Fortec Motorsports

Fortec Motorsports is owned by former racing driver Richard Dutton, who started working for the team in 1993 before buying the outfit two years later. Fortec began racing in the Formula 3000 series and has grown to become one of the biggest single-seater race teams in Europe. It has successfully claimed both drivers’ and teams’ championship titles in Formula Renault UK and Formula BMW UK, with Robin Frijns securing the Formula Renault 3.5 Championship, a major feeder series to Formula One, in 2012.

The Daventry-based squad has vast experience in competing in Formula Renault 3.5, plus Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0, FIA European Formula 3 Championship and British F3.

Fortec made a strong start to its BRDC British Formula 3 career by running Ben Barnicoat to the 2015 Autumn Trophy title, taking three wins from the eight races held. Ben Hingeley showed the team's strength in 2017 with four victories on his way to third place overall in the standings. Multiple wins came in 2018, with two for Manuel Maldonado, and another double for Tom Gamble, who was named as the winner of the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award.

Team Profile

“BRDC British Formula 3 fits really well with what we are doing as a team in developing professional drivers. There is definitely a need for a single-seater series at this level. It's a great championship, with very fast cars, and I think Jonathan Palmer has been very clever in putting this car together. It all makes sense so that’s why we run three cars in the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship.”
