Last month, we reported on an unfortunate incident regarding the Hungarian organisation FuturEsports (FES) with regards to signing James Doherty into their ranks, which caused quite a bit of upset in the community (here is the link to the article for more details). The controversey was strong enough that caused their association with Future Racing Team (FRT) to split from FES and go their own way, however FES have made moves in the last couple of weeks that could put them in a strong position to rebuild. So who have they got on board recently?
We had a chat to Jeffrey back in May when he signed for Race Anywhere (here is the article) for their ACC line-up for the SRO season, and he hinted at the time that he was in talks with several teams for F1 22 to make a bid for the Challengers series. Jeffrey is also a coach for Simracing Centre, so his knowledge of setups will be a huge asset to any team he will be part of.
Not only has FES signed new drivers, but also a change to the management structure is on the cards. To replace the founder of FES t1mb0, who departed the team on the 14th of June, Hungarian driver Zoltán Boda has joined the management ranks of FES, as well as trying to make his way into the F1 challengers grid this year.
A huge signing for FES is the Dutch legend that is Floris Wijers. We had a chat to him when he announced his return to league racing in May (here is that article), who had returned in VSRs colours, but has made the switch to the Hungarian squad.
Another huge signing is the Turkish driver Can Akinci. Can has been going from strength to strength in the F1 league racing scene for several months, and now will fly the Hungarian colours of FES moving forward.
What an incredible way to start a new chapter for FES, to move away from previous issues, and with well respected names to bolster the future of FuturEsports. We look forward to their successes.
