After spending 2015 competing in the WSK Karting Series, Danish karting sensation Nicolai Kjaergaard will make his debut in the MSA Formula series, racing for Fortec Motorsports, who themselves managed an early championship campaign with Dan Ticktum last year.

Kjaergaard also spent the year competing in Danish Super Karts, where he picked up 4 wins and a number of podiums throughout the season. His success has already turned many heads as he heads into the season as one of the most anticipated international talents.

“I am delighted to have signed for Fortec in MSA Formula and I am really excited about my maiden season in cars.” said Kjaergaard. “I feel really at home with Fortec and see the team as playing a key part in my development during the season. I know it will be a really tough championship but I am looking forward to the challenge ahead and cannot wait to get started.”

Fortec team manager Dan Mitchell said it was Nicolai’s potential which helped secure him a seat with the Northamptonshire team: “We tested Nicolai throughout November and December in Valencia and he showed promising signs. He learned and adapted quickly.” 

“Importantly, he really showed he can be on the pace. He’s gone away over January and February to work on a few things including his fitness, but if he puts the work in over the remaining winter months he can be a really good driver and someone to watch out for this season. There’s no reason why Nicolai cannot run at the front.”

Fellow rookies, Alex Quinn and Ross Martin have already been announced for the team that will be hoping to make the most of the young talent at their disposal. The season will commence at Brands Hatch on the 2 April.
