Norwegian driver Martinius Stenshorne, born in February 2006, joins R-ace GP for his first season in Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine. Stenshorne’s racing career started exceptionally early, when he received his first karting as a 4th birthday gift and started racing in Norway. The first national title arrived when he was 9, then international titles came after. His early accomplishments got him the attention of the F1 World Champion Nico Rosberg and a spot in the prestigious Rosberg Racing Academy.
In 2021 Stenshorne debuted in single-seater racing with UAE F.4, before moving on with the Italian F.4 Championship. In both series the Norwegian has been a revelation, bringing home amazing results.
Martinius Stenshorne’s racing abilities certainly have not escaped the watchful eyes of Thibaut de Merindol, Team Principal of R-ace GP, who signed the Norwegian to close the line-up, along with previously announced Tim Tramnitz and Matias Zagazeta, and be the first Rookie of 2023 season for the French Team.
The news was published today in R-ace GP official social media pages.
“R-ace Gp has proven themselves to be a good and consistent team fighting for top positions in FRECA. I’m looking forward to improving myself as much as possible this season and hopefully have a good season. Preparation week was good, got to know a lot about the car as well as the other team members. I’m really looking forward to the first official test, to get back in the car and get the season started.”
Thibaut de Merindol – R-ace GP’s Team Principal:
“Rookie of our 2023 line-up, Martinius has shown great performances last year in F4 and during UAE. He has a true instinct and is a very good racer. We are confident that once he gains some experience and understands the intricacies of the FRECA category, he will be able to compete with the best in the championship”
