Norris announces packed programme in Formula Renault 2.0 and BRDC F4

MSA Formula champion Lando Norris will contest at least four different championships in 2016, having added campaigns in Formula Renault 2.0 and BRDC F4 to his plans for next season.

Norris, 16, clinched the world title in karting in 2014 and took the crown in British FIA F4 category MSA Formula this year.

It had been confirmed on Sunday that he'll contest the off-season Toyota Racing Series in the winter months of 2016 - and Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup, Formula Renault 2.0 NEC and BRDC F4 have now been added to the list for the main season.

In the two Formula Renault 2.0 categories, Norris will race for Josef Kaufmann Racing - the team that took Louis Deletraz to the 2015 NEC title and clinched the teams' trophy in the Eurocup.

"We’ve done some testing with Josef Kaufmann which I really enjoyed and was always in the top three, so I’m looking forward to continuing with the team next season," he said.

In BRDC F4, he will continue with the Carlin squad that helped him to the MSA Formula crown and will compete in the rounds that do not clash with his FR2.0 schedule.

Provisionally, this means Norris should be able to contest six of BRDC F4's eight 2016 weekends, bringing the total number of his outings for next year to 25.
