Alex Quinn continues Arden partnership into FREC

by Ida Wood

Alex Quinn will follow Arden into Formula Regional European Championship this year, after two Formula Renault Eurocup campaigns with the team.

The Briton has spent almost the entirety of his time in car racing with Arden, first as one of its drivers in British Formula 4 and then as one of its driver coaches in the series.

He briefly switched to sportscars before a part-time Eurocup campaign in 2019 that was then followed by a full season in 2020 when he was called up to replace Jackson Walls.

“It’s great to announce my plans to race in the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine for the season ahead, and to be continuing with Arden Motorsport,” said Quinn.

“It’s a perfect opportunity to build on what we learned together in 2020; winter testing was positive, it’s going to be an exciting season ahead and I’m really looking forward to it.

“I’d like to put on record my thanks to Garry Horner and the whole Arden team for this opportunity – I’ll do my best to make the most of it.”

For 2021, FREC uses the same Tatuus T-318 car and Renault engines as the Eurocup, where Quinn won a race in the championship’s final season.

“Everybody at the team is delighted to have retained Alex’s services for the 2021 season ahead – our first in FREC,” Arden’s FREC team manager Ben Salter added.

“He’s an incredibly gifted driver, and last year he really showed a versatility to his driving, adapting in remarkable time to several new circuits and consistently delivering results.”

Quinn joins fellow ex-Eurocup racer William Alatalo in the team’s line-up.
