Fischer Steps Up To Formula Renault ALPS For 2015

1 Mins read

Former Protyre Formula Renault Championship racer TJ Fischer will move up to the Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS championship in 2015 with the newly formed Salvador Duran Racing team.

American racer Fischer will compete on the European stage for the first time following an impressive maiden campaign outside of his homeland this year in the BARC-run Formula Renault series.

Running with Cliff Dempsey Racing, Fischer improved throughout the 2014 season and a run of six top five finishes in the final seven races earned him a top six championship finish.

Fischer is looking forward to tackling the competitive ALPS series, which last season regularly hosted grids of over thirty cars and visits F1 tracks including Monza, Spa and the Red Bull Ring.

“I am so excited to get out to Italy and join the guys there,” said Fischer. “Salvador Duran is someone I’ve always looked up to and followed. I can’t wait to learn from him and take things to the next level.

“As the only American driver racing in this series, I’m psyched to be representing the Stars and Stripes. It’s going to be epic.”

The 2015 Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS season kicks off at Imola on April 12.
