Finnish racer Atte Lehtonen will continue in Protyre Formula Renault with SWB Motorsport this year.

The 19-year-old took part in four of the six race weekends in 2013 with the Simon Baldry-run squad, scoring two tenth-place finishes.

Lehtonen began racing cars in 2011 in Finnish Formula Ford, and moved to the UK to compete in the 750 Motor Club F4 series. He will partner single-seater debutant Jack Butel at SWB this year.

“It?s fantastic to see Atte returning to Protyre Formula Renault this year and we?re delighted SWB has two cars on the grid this season,” said championship promoter Simon North

“It?s yet another endorsement of the category?s stature and continued cost-effectiveness we are continuing to attract so many international drivers.”
