Karter Oram-jones joins Ford Fi­esta field

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Kart­ing grad­u­ate Sa­muel OramJones will con­test his first full sea­son of car rac­ing af­ter step­ping up to the BRSCC Ford Fi­esta Cham­pi­onship this year.

Oram-jones, 18, han­dled a twolitre Fi­esta ST model for the 23 Rac­ing team in the open­ing rounds at Snet­ter­ton last week­end. A blown en­gine on Fri­day ne­ces­si­tated an overnight change, and con­tin­ued power is­sues re­stricted him to a best fin­ish of eighth.

The Mil­ton Keynes-based driver has ex­pe­ri­ence from rac­ing karts in the UK, Europe and South Amer­ica. He has also com­peted in the WSK Euro Se­ries and CIK FIA se­ries.

He hasn’t raced for a year due to his stud­ies. His last out­ing was in For­mula Re­nault BARC in ’14.

Oram-jones said: “We made a jump in both races and just need an­other for the next round. It was my first time in a front-wheel-drive race car and it is very dif­fer­ent to any­thing I have driven be­fore.”

Mc­mul­lan will race again
