For the first time in M2 Competition’s history, the team founded by Mark Pilcher and Jonathan Moury will compete in Formula 4, the first step of training for young drivers in single-seaters.
M2 Competition will join the last weekend of Spanish F4 in Barcelona with French Emilien Denner, go-karting world champion and M2 Competition driver in Toyota Racing Series in 2020.
This round will serve as preparation for 2021 when M2 Competition will compete the full season, joining other international teams. By joining Formula 4, M2 Competition shows its ambition to be present at the first two steps of the FIA Global Pathway with Spanish F4 and Formula Regional Europe.
Jonathan Moury: We are delighted to announce our expansion to the Spanish Formula 4 championship. It is an ideal platform for drivers to transition from Karting to single-seater and offers one of the best value for money in Europe. M2 can now offer our drivers to train for their future careers in Formula 4, Toyota Racing Series as well as the Formula 3 regional level. By entering the final round of the series with Emilien Denner it allows us to learn as much as possible about the series and to be fully up and running for 2021.
Emilien Denner: It is a great opportunity for me! With the confinement and everything that happened this year, it has been really difficult to find sponsors. But I want to thank M2 Competition for the opportunity they are providing me and I am really excited to return to single-seater and to the team.
