ART Grand Prix is pleased to announce the addition of Victor Martins to its new Formula Renault Eurocup line up.
2016 CIK FIA Karting world champion, Victor Martins began his racing career the following year in the Formula 4 France series. With 4 wins, he easily won the best rookie title, scoring twice the amount of points of his rivals and only missing out on the national title in the final round.
In 2018, Victor continued his progression in Formula Renault Eurocup by recording several victories and finishing his first season in a promising 5th place. Last year, Victor was one of the main contenders of the new Formula Renault Eurocup and after a record of 6 victories and 9 pole positions (which was a category record), he concluded the year as vice-champion.
Victor Martins :
“First of all, I would like to thank ART Grand Prix for placing its trust in me, because it is an extremely professional team with a persuasive record. My goal will be to exploit all the team’s resources to progress, learn and fulfil our common goal, which is to win the championship. It will be a win-win situation: I will give the team the benefit of my experience in the series and in the car as they return to the series in 2020. We will set up the best working environment possible to achieve great success and write a beautiful page in the history books that should allow me to climb the ladder even higher”.
Sébastien Philippe (Président d’ART Grand Prix) :
“ART Grand Prix is keen to start our career in Formula Renault Eurocup with Victor because he has been one of the best drivers in recent years and his experience in this championship will be invaluable for the entire team. Without a doubt, our objective will be to aim for the title and enter the Eurocup Formula Renault Championship on the right foot while helping Victor continue his progression in the motorsport hierarchy.”
