1 Mins read

Former Formula 1 driver Martin Donnelly and his son Stefan will compete in the MSVR-organised Elise Trophy, Lotus Cup UK and Lotus Cup UK Speed Championships in 2014.

20 year old Stefan will be making his motorsport debut this season, and will race in the Elise Trophy on his own, as well as teaming up with his father for the Speed Championship and mini-endurance races in the Lotus Cup UK.

“It has been a long ambition of mine to be a racing driver, but unfortunately due to his [Martin’s] career being cut short in F1, as a family we didn’t have the financial capability to allow me to get into a racing car. However this year with the backing from IDSystems it has allowed me for the first time to race alongside him in the Production class of Lotus Cup UK,” said Stefan.

“This is my first year of car racing, and I have to be realistic with my ambitions for the season, as there are many quick and much more experienced guys that I am racing against. However, I hope to come on leaps and bounds during the course of the season with dad’s tuition, and we believe that with more race experience under my belt, we can start to challenge for podiums in the second half of the season.”
