Fluid Motorsport Capture ‘Fast Fred’

Fluid Motorsport have signed up 24-year-old Fred Martin-Dye as a works driver for the forthcoming Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship.

Martin-Dye competed in the series last year, securing an impressive podium in only his second race. It was the Surrey racers first taste of motorsport after a five-year sabbatical in which he gained a masters degree in automotive engineering.

Despite only racing in the latter part of the 2012 championship, Martin-Dye turned enough heads at Fluid Motorsport to earn a full-season shot at the prestigious championship.

“I’m absolutely delighted to have signed a deal with Fluid to race the brand new Sinter chassis this year and I’m really looking forward to getting out there and building on everything we achieved last season,” said Fred.

“We really weren’t sure what to expect last year, especially after such a long time away from racing, but I was quietly confident we could take some good results. Everything is new again this year with the addition of the wings, but I’m really looking forward to the challenge. With the bonus of live TV coverage, it should be a fantastic season.”

Fred is the second driver to publicly commit to the Sinter chassis for the 2o13 season, with Radical’s James Abbott being the other.

The opening rounds of the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain are three weekends away at Brands Hatch (30/31 March), where the series will take up its new slot as a BTCC support event in front of ITV4’s live cameras.
