MB Partners are delighted to announce that Vansdirect have continued their winning partnership with 2018 Ginetta Junior Rookie Champion, Louis Foster, as he takes the first step into the FIA single-seater pyramid as he takes on the British Formula 4 Championship this season.
A stellar rookie season in cars saw Louis dominate the Ginetta Junior Championship, drawing many fans in the process. The 15-year-old claimed nine superb wins across the season, including a record five on the bounce. Foster finished the year as highest points scorer but had to settle for the Rookie Champion’s title and the runner’s up spot as dropped points meant that he missed out on the championship title by just eight points.
Vansdirect supported Louis to new heights in 2018 and the UK’s premier independent van retailer have continued their partnership as the young Brit takes on his latest challenge. Offering their customers with brand new vans with cheap and flexible finance options from all the leading brands, stocking over 2,000 new commercial vehicles, Vansdirect’s skilled team are well placed to offer expert, impartial advice as well as an offering a range of finance options to meet all of their customers’ needs.
Hoping that Vansdirect’s support can help him towards similar on-track success this year, Louis is delighted to have the van retailers support again for the upcoming season.
“I’m thrilled to receive the backing of Vansdirect again. They were so supportive last year in my Ginetta campaign and played a huge part in what was such a successful campaign for us all. I’m hoping that their continued support this year will bring us the same success in F4. Obviously, it’s a big step into single-seaters, but I’m lucky that the support of the Vansdirect team will give me plenty of confidence going into the season ahead.”
Equally delighted to continue their winning partnership with Louis, Richard Simmonds, MD of Vansdirect, added:
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Louis again in 2019. It was incredible to see the success that he produced on track last year and it was wonderful to play a part in what was an incredible campaign. All of us at Vansdirect are hoping that our support can bring Louis and the Double R team the same success again this year in F4.”
Louis’ British F4 campaign gets underway on Saturday 6th April, at the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit.
