Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

Along­side Dave New­sham, the Power Maxed Rac­ing team will also run a sin­gle­make Swift Sport cat­e­gory car for MSA Academy mem­ber, Jake Tay­lor.

The Retford-based driver grad­u­ated from the Ju­nior Swift cat­e­gory for 2015 and fin­ished sixth over­all in the Swift Sport se­ries, claim­ing a podium fin­ish at the fi­nal round at Croft.

“I’m very much look­ing for­ward to this sea­son and I’m very grate­ful for this new op­por­tu­nity with the Power Maxed Rac­ing team,” said Tay­lor.

“I’m go­ing to carry on learn­ing and de­vel­op­ing fur­ther, while get­ting to know the team and the car. I’m aim­ing for more podi­ums this year, and hope­fully a win. If we could get a win that would be fan­tas­tic. With this team, and with a bit more ex­pe­ri­ence, I don’t see why that’s not pos­si­ble.”

and there were some se­ri­ously tal­ented en­trants on the day.

“His abil­ity in dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines and cars was im­pres­sive and his whole at­ti­tude in and out of the car was just what we were look­ing for. I am de­lighted our judge­ment was cor­rect back then and that he has proved such a valu­able as­set to BTRDA.”

Fox is some­thing of a poster boy for the BTRDA. He showed as soon as he be­gan his com­pe­ti­tion ca­reer that the club of­fers ac­ces­si­ble mo­tor­sport, and any­one with tal­ent can make their way through the ranks, gain ex­pe­ri­ence and ul­ti­mately chal­lenge for the BTRDA’S bench­mark awards. His suc­cess should be an in­spi­ra­tion to oth­ers. ■
