Gill takes Fortec Motorsport seat
Fortec Motorsport has confirmed talented British youngster Alex Gill as the team’s first signing for the 2014 Protyre Formula Renault Championship.
Gill, a podium finisher in the ultra-competitive category during last November’s Autumn Cup, will embark on his first full season in cars this year with the Daventry team and the 16-year-old is aiming to fight at the sharp end from the very first round of the campaign.
After winning the 2009 Super 1 Cadet Karting Championship and then adding the hotly-contested MSA British KF3 Karting title in 2012, the Doncaster youngster focused on educational commitments last year before arriving in Protyre Formula Renault for the final two rounds of the main season.
Going on to take two podiums from three races in the Autumn Cup, with a best result of second place, Gill firmly established himself as one of the UK’s top young single-seater prospects and the Red Bull Racing affiliated driver will undoubtedly be a major threat this season.
