Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

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.”
