Frank Bird joins Arden for Formula Renault Eurocup in 2019

Infinity Sports Management are proud to announce Frank Bird will join Arden for his third season in Formula Renault Eurocup in 2019. Hot off the back of a sensational victory at the Dubai 24 hours event earlier this year, Frank joins the British team alongside Patrik Pasma and Sebastian Fernandez, for the new-look championship season.

Beginning his racing career in the Ginetta Junior Championship in 2015, Frank graduated to single-seater racing in 2016. With experience gained, his abilities developed quickly over the course of the season, earning three top-ten finishes in his Rookie campaign – ahead of a one-off appearance in the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup Championship at the end of the season, graduating to a full season in 2017.

Joining Infinity and Tech 1 for 2018, Frank built upon his talent, to become a regular points scorer – ending the season strongly.

Keen to continue his success, Frank looks to the season ahead:

“I’m delighted to have signed with Arden Motorsport for Formula Renault Eurocup in 2019. It’s going to be a really exciting year, with a new car and new team. We had a good first test at Magny-Cours, so I know I’ve got a good bunch of people around me which will give me a great opportunity to build on my progress from last year. I’d like to thank everyone who made this possible and I’m really looking forward to the next test at Paul Ricard!
