Arden return to the 'Ring' for Formula Renault Eurocup

Arden Motorsport drivers Dan Ticktum, Zane Goddard and Ghislain Cordeel will tackle the Nürburgring as the second half of the FR 2.0 Eurocup Championship gets under way.

Arden Motorsport will return to the celebrated Nürburgring circuit this weekend as the second half of the Formula Renault Eurocup season begins in Germany. Red Bull Junior Dan Ticktum took the teams maiden pole position and race victory at the Hungaroring in Budapest last time out, giving the team and drivers a huge boost going into the second part of their inaugural FR 2.0 Eurocup campaign.

The Nürburgring has always been a favourite among the drivers, who will race this weekend in support of the FIA World Endurance Championship. On this undulating layout, finding the right compromise will be vital to join the club of winners and defending Formula Renault Champions. Drivers who have mastered this circuit and gone onto win the championship include Jack Aitken, Stoffel Vandoorne, Daniil Kvyat, Valtteri Bottas, Roberto Merhi and Lando Norris.

Leading Arden Motorsport driver and Red Bull Junior Driver Dan Ticktum goes into this weekend 6th overall in the Driver's Championship and leading the Rookie Driver's Championship after his great run of form stemming from Silverstone to Hungary. He will be keen to add more silverware to his trophy cabinet this weekend after impressing in testing here earlier in the season alongside teammate Zane Goddard.
The young Aussie managed to score his first points of the season after overcoming a torrid run of luck earlier in the campaign -the aim is to carry on his point scoring form into the second half of the season. Teammate Ghislain Cordeel just missed out on getting his first points haul last time out and will be gunning to ensure that he gets his name of the scoresheet as soon as possible in the hugely competitive Formula Renault Eurocup Championship.
