Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

MSA For­mula squad JTR is still look­ing for driv­ers to com­pete in the cat­e­gory af­ter run­ning a sin­gle car for Dane Pa­trik Matthiesen so far in 2016.

The team won the series in its fi­nal two years as For­mula Ford in 2013 and 2014 but has strug­gled since sin­gle-seater pow­er­houses like Car­lin, Ar­den and Fortec joined last year when it be­came Bri­tain’s FIA F4 cat­e­gory.

“We are still look­ing for other driv­ers,” said team man­ager Nick Madge. “It just seems quiet. It’s hard to find peo­ple with bud­get.”

The team has there­fore de­cided to put one of its three My­gale chas­sis up for sale. “We’ve got three cars and there’s no point hav­ing them stand­ing around do­ing noth­ing,” added Madge. “We can sur­vive eas­ily enough with two.”

Matthiesen has had a dif­fi­cult start to his first sea­son in sin­gle­seaters and has been strug­gling with en­gine is­sues. Madge is con­fi­dent the team has now got to the bot­tom of these and there should be an im­prove­ment.
