04 Mar Callan O’Keeffe joins Fortec for NEC and Eurocup Championships
Callan O’Keeffe is set to compete in the Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup and Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup with Fortec Motorsports during the 2015 season.
The 18 year old was a strong competitor last year in the ART Junior Team supported by Lotus. He enjoyed a competitive season in both Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup and in Formula Renault 2.0 NEC, where he was successful in achieving three podium finishes and a race win.
Racing in both Formula Renault NEC and Formula Renault Eurocup, O’Keeffe will be able to continue to progress throughout the season, building on last year’s experience in both Formula Renault Championships.
“It was a difficult winter filled with uncertainty, but thanks to the help of a group of people in South Africa I’m back on the grid and thrilled to be joining a team as highly regarded as Fortec” commented O’Keeffe. “More exciting news about my support team will be announced soon, including support from Francois Pienaar, Captain of the victorious South African Rugby World Cup Team in 1995, who is now involved in sports management! I think we have put together a team and driver package which will, I have no doubt, see us being competitive from the first round, giving myself the best chance of fighting at the front and making 2015 a season to remember!”
“I’m really happy to have Callan in the team” added Martin Young, Team Manager at Fortec. “I’ve known Callan for many years now and he has always been a driver that can win races and Championships when it matters. With Callan racing with Fortec in the Eurocup and NEC team he will only further strengthen the team; I am looking forward to the season ahead!”
