Sørlie joins Mark Burdett Motorsport for Formula Renault UK Championship
Former Formula BMW UK Championship competitor, Stian Sørlie has switched to Mark Burdett Motorsport for his step up to the Formula Renault UK Championship.
Stian joins the team aiming to continue his race winning form from 2005. Team Principal Mark Burdett said "Stian impressed us with his performances last season so we are delighted he has chosen to race with us this year. Our first test last week went well and Stian has gelled with the team very quickly."
Stian was equally pleased to have joined the team, commenting "I se Formula Renault as a great opportunity to step up, but at the same time have a budget that is not a lot higher than Formula BMW. Mark Burdett Motorsport gives me what I need to succeed in Formula Renault. Already the first day I felt there had the same goal as me to win races. Whit 2 new cars and Puddy joining the team, I think everything is down to me for getting the result."
Stian's 2006 racing is supported by: First Hotels, Tronrud Auto, The Norwegian Automobile Federation, Spydeberg Sparebank, Puma and Norfloor.
The team are now busy preparing for the first official Formula Renault UK Championship test of the season at Silverstone on 1-2 March.
