Fielding steps up to F4 with Douglas Motorsport
February 21, 2013 by Paul Grogan
Reigning Ginetta Junior Team Champions Douglas Motorsport are delighted to announce that 2012 Ginetta Junior Vice-Champion Sennan Fielding will join them for the inaugural running of the BRDC Formula 4 Championship.
Sennan Fielding graduated from Karting into Ginetta Junior in 2011 as his prize for becoming the debut winner of the Ginetta Scholarship. Quickly Fielding made his mark in the series as one to watch and returned in 2012 as one of the championship favourites. As the season unfolded, Sennan found himself locked in a three way battle for title honours with Niall Murray and eventual champion Charlie Robertson, a title that was only decided at the last weekend in Brands Hatch.
Fielding tested with Douglas Motorsport at the end of 2012 and commented: “Wayne has a lot of passion behind him and he is an excellent driver coach. We spent a lot of time in Ireland analysing camera footage that was very useful. Last season their cars were very well prepared and his team was always strong and running up at the front.”
Douglas Motorsport were among one of the first teams to commit to this new cost effective single seater championship spearheaded by MSV boss Jonathan Palmer. Team Principal Wayne Douglas is full of praise for this new series. “When we heard about this championship coming up for 2013, it sounded like the perfect next step for us. Being run by MSV and supported by the BRDC enables this championship to become one of the major stepping stones in any young racing drivers career. I am delighted to have secured Sennan for this season as he is an extremely talended driver and I would be disappointed if we don’t see him challenging for the title right from the very start of the season.”
