SOUTHWICK teenager Max Cornelius will make his BRDC (British Racing Drivers’ Club) F4 debut at Donington Park later this month, after securing a deal with Chris Dittmann Racing.
The 19-year-old, a former runner-up in the Autosport Young Guns category in 2010, completed a successful test with the team at Snetterton earlier this month and has signed up for the final round, with a view to also competing in the series next year.
Cornelius secured seven wins from 14 Autosport races, as well as five pole positions.
The former Midlands Mini Max, and Clay Pigeon Mini Max karting champion, saw his success land him test drives with the Carlin and West Tec Formula 3 teams.
He said: I tested with the car and the team at Snetterton two weeks ago and I made really quick progress, built up my lap times and got to know the car and the team really well.
“I’m feeling really confident of my chances.”
Team principal Chris Dittmann added: “It was his first time in a car for three years, but he got up to pace really quickly. I think it’s going to be a package with a lot of potential for Donington Park.’’
