Mon­ger moves up to MSA For­mula berth

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Ginetta Ju­nior race win­ner Billy Mon­ger will switch to MSA For­mula this year with JHR De­vel­op­ments.

The 16-year-old fin­ished fifth in the Ginetta stand­ings last sea­son, but will now grad­u­ate to sin­gle-seaters af­ter im­press­ing in a test at the end of 2015.

“I’m de­lighted to sign Billy to our MSA For­mula team,” said JHR boss Steven Hunter. “We had Billy rac­ing with us last year and he cer­tainly showed some se­ri­ous prom­ise. He tested in an MSA For­mula car at the end of last sea­son and his pace was at that of a very ex­pe­ri­enced sin­gle-seater driver. I’ve no doubt Billy will be very quick this year as he showed ex­cep­tional pace in that test.”

Mon­ger will join Sen­nan Field­ing and Jack Bu­tel at JHR in MSA For­mula this sea­son and Hunter adds it should “be a very good team” with all of them hav­ing ex­pe­ri­ence of rac­ing with the squad al­ready. ● Fel­low Ginetta Ju­nior grad­u­ate Frank Bird will join Mon­ger in MSA For­mula this year. The 16-year-old will drive for Fortec Mo­tor­sports, com­plet­ing the squad’s four-car line up.
