Fortec Motorsport continue their push for honours in the ROKiT F4 British Championship certified by FIA at Brands Hatch’s Indy circuit this weekend [6-7 May].

The Daventry-based team opened the new season with their first podium finish of the campaign at Donington Park a fortnight ago, on a weekend where the results otherwise didn’t quite tell the full story.

But that was then, and this is now, and the team’s duo of James Higgins and Alpine F1 junior Aiden Neate make the journey to the 1.2-mile Kent venue this weekend re-charged and ready to get their respective championship ambitions back on track.

The Indy circuit, by its short, sharp nature often provides ultra-close racing, and qualifying can be crucial, with the entire grid often lapping within the same second. Finding a space in traffic to get a clear lap in can often be the difference between starting up front, or in the midfield.

After two practice sessions on Friday, qualifying kicks off the competitive action at 10:25 on Saturday, with the opening race to follow at 13:40.

Sunday features another two 20-minute contests at 10:25 and 15:10 (all times BST), with live, free-to-air television coverage available domestically on ITV4.

James Higgins (#18) said:

“I’m really excited to get going at Brands Hatch this weekend. It’s the Indy circuit this time around, which should provide some really close racing.

“I know the team will provide me with a great car, and together we can work to bring home some strong results.”

Aiden Neate (#57) said:

“We showed so much promise, together with the team, last time out, and the plan is to build on that even more at Brands Hatch this weekend.

“The weather forecast is looking a little changeable at the moment, so it could be a bit of an unpredictable weekend. I can’t wait for the challenge that goes along with that, and hopefully we can leave with some solid points under our belts.”

Oliver Dutton, Team Principal said:

“We’re all really looking forward to Brands Hatch this weekend. It would be fair to say Donington wasn’t a true reflection of where we’re at, as a team, so we’re keen to get back to it and start putting things right.

“It’s such a competitive field, so qualifying is really going to be key. The weather looks a bit unpredictable, but we’re happy with the car we have in all conditions. All the ingredients are there, we just need to put it together.”
