Matt Bell Joins Formula 4 As Privateer

1 Mins read

Hampshire’s Matt Bell has become the second driver to announce his participation in next year’s BRDC Formula 4 Championship as a privateer.

The 22 year old joins the series on the back of a successful debut season in the Radical Clubman’s Cup in 2012, finishing third overall with six wins, six podiums and two new lap records.

The former karter has some single-seater experience under his belt, racing in the Formula BMW UK series in 2007, before competing in selected races in Formula Palmer Audi over the next few seasons as budget constraints hampered his racing.

Matt, who will be run by his father Trevor, said: “We’re really looking forward to racing next year and can’t wait to get our hands on the new F4 car. Having little single seater experience is going to make things a steep learning curve for us against some stiff competition, but our goal is to win and we’re certainly not here to make up the numbers!”

Bell joins James Greenway as a privateer in the series.
