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.
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. Since 2016 they've regularly won races in Britain's top single-seater category and challenged for titles, while also propelling Tom Gamble and Johnathan Hoggard to the McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award.
“GB3 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 GB3 Championship.”
