British Racing Driver Frank Bird will join Arden for his third season in Formula Renault, lining up alongside Patrik Pasma and Sebastian Fernandez for the new-look 2019 championship season.

Frank started his racing career in the Ginetta Junior Championship in 2015, before graduating into single-seater racing in 2016. He developed quickly over the course of the season, bagging three top-ten finishes in his Rookie campaign – before making a one-off appearance in the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup Championship at the end of the season.

2017 saw Frank claim victory at the season opening 24 Hours of Dubai event, before taking part in his first season in Formula Renault Eurocup.

He later joined Tech 1 Racing in Winter testing, before confirming a full season with them in 2018 as he continued his development in the hugely competitive junior championship.

In his second season in the championship, Frank became a regular points scorer – ending the season strongly and gaining momentum into the 2019 season.

Frank Bird - Arden Formula Renault Eurocup Driver:

"I am delighted to have signed for Arden Motorsport in the Formula Renault Eurocup for 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! Thanks to everyone who made this possible. Looking forward to the next test at Paul Ricard!”

Ben Salter – Arden Formula Renault EurocupTeam Manager:

“We are really pleased that Frank has decided to join Arden for the 2019 Formula Renault Championship. I’m sure with his experience he will a regular front runner and we can challenge from the off."

The Arden Formula Renault Eurocup squad has been confirmed as the team heads into the second pre-season test in Paul Ricard, in preparation for the season opener at Monza, on the 13-14 April.
