Mitchell gets Ligier for OSS challenge
Craig Mitchell will return to the BRSCC’S OSS series this season driving a Ligier JS49S.
The 22-year-old was second in Class B and fourth overall in 2014 – finishing on the podium in every race – but took a break from racing last year to complete his degree.
Mitchell, based in South Lanarkshire, is a previous Scottish kart champion and has also competed in Scottish Legends and Sports 2000.
“We chose OSS as there’s less long-distance travelling,” he said. “Also there’s more race time on any event weekend and a great selection of cars. We also had a chance of the ex-if Motorsport Ligier race car, which is superb.”
Championship coordinator Alan Jenkins added: “We’re pleased to have both Craig and the Ligier back on the grid. This year is proving to be one of our best ever for open regulation class racing and it’s especially pleasing to see youngsters getting into aero and slicks sportscar racing.”
