26 Feb Dan Ticktum joins Fortec for debut season in MSA Formula
After karting for Zanardi Strakka Racing in 2014, Ticktum is ready to progress with Fortec to single seater racing. He will be competing in the all-new MSA Formula, a championship certified by FIA and powered by Ford Eco Boost.
Contests for MSA Formula will span 30 races as a single-seater support series to the British Touring Car Championship.
The 15 year old has enjoyed an excellent karting career, winning several British National Championships and becoming CIK-FIA Vice European Champion in KFJ.
“It’s amazing to make the step up from karting and I’m really happy to have signed with Fortec Motorsports to race in the new MSA Formula” commented Ticktum. “It’s the perfect place to kick start my single-seater career. I’ve already done a bit of pre-season testing and the car feels great”.
Daniel Mitchell, Team Manager at Fortec, added “It’s a great signing for Fortec, there’s absolutely no question of his talent so it’s down to us now to provide him the equipment. Pre-season testing so far has been positive but we feel as a team there is still a lot more to come.”
