Indian driver Tarun Reddy has signed with Fortec Motorsports for the 2016 BRDC British Formula 3 Championship. Reddy graduates to British Formula 3 from MSA Formula where he competed with Double R Racing in 2015.
The 18-year-old tested the new Tatuus-Cosworth at Snetterton in November, describing it as “the perfect step” in his career, and has now committed to the series for the season ahead. Reddy has previously raced in the MRF Challenge, becoming a race-winner in the 2014/15 season and finishing seventh overall in the latest iteration, whilst competing against a highly competitive field.
In 2014, Reddy competed in the Formula Renault Championship in the UK and dovetailed that with a campaign in the National MRF 1600 Championship in India, which he won. The Chennai-native was also a part of the Sahara Force India F1 Team Academy.
Reddy said: “I'm happy to sign with a leading team like Fortec for the 2016 BRDC British Formula 3 season. We had a couple of tests at the end of last year which went really well. The goal for the next upcoming pre-season tests is to work with the team and develop the car to my driving style so that we can hit the ground running to challenge for wins and podiums from the get-go.”
