Pre-season preparations continue at full speed


Joel Granfors continues to prepare for his imminent F4 British Championship debut, testing at a host of series venues across the past couple of weeks with Fortec Motorsport.

Testing has taken place at Donington Park, Snetterton, Silverstone, Oulton Park, Brands Hatch and Thruxton, with Joel and the team finding good pace while gradually improving car set-up and engineering direction.

Meanwhile, Joel has now moved to the UK in order to be closer to his team on a full-time basis.

“It’s been going well so far,” says Joel. “I’m getting to grips with the car and the circuits. Everything is pointing in the right direction, but of course there are still things to work on. We’ve got a few more days of testing coming up and I hope we’ll continue to make positive steps then.”

The F4 British Championship gets underway at the high-speed Thruxton circuit, not far from Southampton, on May 8-9.
