Mitchell gets Ligier for OSS chal­lenge

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
