American Alexander Rossi has signed with Fortec Motorsport for the 2011 World Series by Renault.

Rossi, 19, spent last season in the GP3 Series where he logged two wins and five podiums, finishing fourth in the final point standings.

The California native made his WSR debut last year at Monaco with ISR, where he qualified fifth. He also completed two test days at Motorland Aragon (Spain) in a Formula Renault 3.5 machine this past fall — posting impressive times right off the bat.

He will make his 2011 debut with Fortec on April 16-17 at Motorland Aragon when the series opens its 17-round championship.
