The new BRDC Formula 4 Championship has attracted leading
Formula Renault 3.5 team Comtec Racing to the series, with the
Norfolk based squad running three cars next year.
Comtec was originally founded as the works Van Diemen Formula Ford team in 1973, before moving to Formula Renault 2.0 and building impressive junior racing credentials with numerous British and European titles to their name.
Now an independent team based near Snetterton circuit, Comtec first entered the Formula Renault 3.5 Series in 2006 and made an immediate impression by running Alx Daniellson to title glory in their very first year.
Since then they've enjoyed success with drivers including Jon Lancaster, Max Chilton, Stefano Colleti and, more recently, Nick Yelloy who currently lies fourth in the standings heading into the penultimate rounds next weekend with two wins and four podiums.
Roly Vincini from Comtec Racing said: "We're really looking forward to the new BRDC Formula 4 Championship as it will allow young drivers to develop the skills required to compete at higher levels."
Jonathan Palmer, Formula 4 Series Director said: "I'm very pleased to welcome Comtec Racing to F4. The presence of such a successful and internationally-recognised team is a great endorsement of the package we've so carefully put together. I look forward to seeing what they can achieve next year."
