Phoenix Motorsport is a British racing team currently competing in the 2015 FV2 Series season.

History

Phoenix Motorsport was founded in 2014 by Alex Easton; who is a motor racing enthusiast from Manchester, United Kingdom. Easton started the team with the goal of helping young English drivers get their chance to prove themselves in virtual motorsport.

2015

In 2015, Phoenix were accepted into the FV2 Series and confirmed they would be running English drivers Callum Brandon and Dominic Hanson.

In late 2015 Phoenix applied to join the 2016 Formula Virtual grid as a 13th entry, but their application was unsuccessful as FIRST, one of many other teams to apply, was accepted onto the grid. Easton commented shortly after the news broke, congratulating FIRST and Team Principal Adam Blocker. He then went on to say that Phoenix Motorsport will continue to improve and possibly expand into other junior formulae, depending on certain circumstances.

Sponsorship

Phoenix, being a small FV2 team, have initially struggled to find sponsors. However, PG Tips were announced as the teams first big sponsor, quickly followed by local company Premier Foods. Team Founder and Principal Alex Easton was quoted as saying that "If Phoenix are ever to compete in the top tier of Formula Virtual, we would most likely need a title sponsor."
