Jordan Cane announced as first 2018 Eurocup entry with Fortec

by Ida Wood


BRDC British Formula 3 race-winner Jordan Cane has been announced as the first driver for the 2018 Formula Renault Eurocup.

Cane, who finished sixth in this year?s British F3 standings with Douglas Motorsport, will drive for Fortec Motorsports, who were rivals of Cane in 2017.

?We had a lot of offers for next year, but I?m really happy to confirm that I will be racing for Fortec in 2018 in the Eurocup,? announced Cane.

?The team did a great job in testing and have shown that we will be able to compete at the front.

?I have work to do, Fortec have put their faith in me to get results and for that I?m very grateful. It?s a tough series but with the people around me, I?m confident we will get results.?

16-year-old Cane already has three years of experience in car racing, having made his single-seater debut in the F1600 Formula F championship in America in 2015.

He won seven races that season, and became the youngest ever British winner of a single-seater race in the process.

He stepped up to USF2000 for 2016 with little success, before returning to Britain for this year to race in British F3.

Having missed the first two rounds because he was still 15, Cane went on to win three reverse-grid races and finish sixth in the standings.

He joined up with Fortec for the official Eurocup rookie test at Barcelona.

?We are ecstatic to have Jordan join Fortec,? said Fortec?s team manager Martin Young.

?We have been keeping a close eye on him since his impressive performance in America and we look forward to a strong competitive 2018 season?

Fortec fielded a four car team in the Eurocup this season, winning one race with Alex Peroni at Pau.
