In 2015 & 2016 Connor was the UAE X30 Cadet Champion and UAE MicroMax Vice – Champion, and in 2016 finished the SWS Junior Cup World Finals in 3rd Place.
Team Owner Josh Evans: “On behalf of the team, I’m happy to say that everyone is excited to welcome Alex onboard and we are thrilled to be part of his career. We have been talking to him for some time and know he’s been eager to take things to the next level. These last two rounds provide him a perfect opportunity to do so“.
Alex Connor: “Of course I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the F3, especially as I live here but I haven’t actually tested the car until a couple of days ago nor raced in Dubai. And, this series is the perfect opportunity to learn and build experience against world class drivers, with a front-running team“.
