Fossey wins Next Big Step award ahead of 2016 tilt
Junior F1000 driver Ed Fossey is the latest driver to win the Next Big Step award previously won by Aaron Mcclure and Sam Bilham.
Fossey will be supplied with Yokohama tyres, tuition from past winners and money towards entry fees, and will step up to the BTRDA Mixed Surface Championship in 2016.
“I am delighted to win such a incredible prize,” said Fossey. “The support is not only financial as the knowledge and experience from the Next Big Step team is very important. This has allowed me to put a programme together and it will help me develop as a driver, making the transition from the Junior series into a mixed surface National campaign.”
Next Big Step founder Ian Arden added: “Ed has the whole package; he is quick behind the wheel but is also extremely dedicated to the sport. Having to come across from Jersey adds another challenge and we wanted to help him put a good season together.”
