Front-runners Enigma expand single seater programme

Following an impressive end to their F3 Cup season, Enigma Motorsport is expanding its racing programme this winter with a move into BRDC Formula 4 ahead of a dual assault on F3 Cup and BRDC F4 in 2014.

Following an impressive end to their F3 Cup season, Enigma Motorsport is expanding its racing programme this winter with a move into BRDC Formula 4 ahead of a dual assault on F3 Cup and BRDC F4 in 2014.

The Bedforshire-based squad claimed the final F3 Cup victory of the year at Snetterton last month following an imperious drive from Henry Chart and Olly Rae continued to excel, claiming fourth on the road on the way to another Trophy 01 Class win. Chart became this season's second winner during round two at Silverstone back in March.

Enigma, managed by multiple F3 Cup race winner and Snetterton F3 Cup lap record holder Linton Stutely and former MRF mechanic Tom Farquhar, have a wealth of experience in Formula Ford prior to making the move into F3 Cup.

The squad ran Antti Buri in the 2010 British and Finnish Formula Ford Championships, claiming the title in the latter, and they carried that winning formula into the next few years with Rae, George Blundell and Falco Wauer.

Norwegian Wauer is the man they've enlisted into the cockpit of their impressive-looking MSV F4-013 car, a driver whom they helped to six wins in the 750 Motor Club Formula 4 Championship to much praise.

Farquhar told Formula4.com they're not there to make up the numbers, but continue their fine form into the inaugural BRDC F4 Winter Championship.

"We have been closely following the BRDC F4 Championship having been at many of the rounds with the F3 Cup, and it's quickly become apparent that this is the leading series for young drivers to graduate to from karting. We can't wait to get racing!

"He's a very quick driver who is certain to challenge for the Winter Championship honours, and with Falco we expect to see the Enigma name running at the front during the two rounds."

Wauer added "It's great to be working with Enigma again, we had a lot of success last year and hopefully we can repeat that again during the Winter Championship."
