Pau entry confirmed for Rougier and Fortec

Pau entry confirmed for Rougier and Fortec

· Formula Renault Eurocup racer Arthur Rougier set to contest NEC season opener at Pau next month [11-13 May].




· Triple NEC Champions Fortec Motorsport aiming to use the weekend to prepare for a support race slot at the world-famous Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix.


· Announcement follows a raft of recent news, with Fortec working hard to secure a deal to run a second entry on the grid.






Arthur Rougier and Fortec Motorsport will compete at the 2018 Formula Renault Northern European Cup curtain-raiser at Pau.



The Frenchman has made the step up to international competition with the Formula Renault Eurocup for this season, taking three consistent finishes so far at Circuit Paul Ricard and the Autodromo Nazionale Monza.



Rougier is no stranger to Pau, either, having taken a brace of pole positions and race victories at the historic street venue in 2017 as part of his title-winning French F4 campaign.



In Fortec Motorsport he aligns himself with one of the NEC’s most decorated outfits, with the British squad claiming three consecutive titles in 2012, 2013 and 2014 in the hands of Jake Dennis, Matt Parry and Ben Barnicoat respectively.



The team are pushing to complete a deal that will enable them to field a brace of 2.0 litre Formula Renault machines at the season opener, with a second driver yet to be announced.



The team also consider Monza, an event ideally placed during the break in the Eurocup’s calendar, as an attractive proposition pending a deal being put together.



After the double-header at Pau, the NEC takes in further stand-alone events at Monza and Hockenheimring along with three shared events alongside the Eurocup at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Hungaroring and Nurburgring.




Martin Young, Fortec Motorsport said,
“Pau is always a great event to be part of, especially over the last few years. Being a street circuit, it’s also excellent preparation for Monaco for both the team and drivers.



“Street circuits are a completely different challenge from permanent venues; drivers won’t be pushing fully until the last few minutes of second practice, and the same again for qualifying.



“As a team we’ve got very fond memories of Pau, having claimed pole position and the race win on our last venture there with the Eurocup last season. We’d like to get two cars out and we’re pushing to make that happen, we’ll see what comes of it.



“Coming into a rookie season in the Eurocup from regional F4 series’ can be difficult, and at the moment Arthur [Rougier] needs seat time. Pau is a calm circuit in the sense that there aren’t many opportunities to overtake. It’ll be a good confidence builder and the objective has to be solid top ten finishes and then we’ll push onward to Silverstone and Monte Carlo.”
