James Walker Confirmed For Oulton Park
In Fortec Mercedes

Following on from DSC's report of British GT testing at Rockingham (here), James Walker has been confirmed with Fortec Motorsports for the opening round at Oulton Park on Easter Monday.

“British GT looks like it is going to have one of its most competitive years in its history, so to be part of that is fantastic,” said the Jersey-based racer. “Richard Dutton at Fortec had literally just collected the car and asked me to shake it down at Oulton Park with a further run at Rockingham. Despite near freezing temperatures we were still able to get some productive running. Richard has put together a great team including experienced engineer Trevor Foster to run the car; it was an easy decision to make.

“It’s obviously going to be a massive learning curve [for the team] but we will be out to show what we can do. If we can have a trouble-free weekend, we can demonstrate the pace we know the car is capable of.”

The remainder of the Fortec line-up will be announced soon, while Walker is in discussion with several teams regarding potential racing programmes in the ELMS, ALMS and in Asia.
