Crack Clio Cup squad WDE Mo­tor­sport joins forces with kart team for Fi­esta Ju­nior en­try

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Kart­ing team BAB Mo­tor­sport will step up to the Fi­esta Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship as part of an af­fil­i­a­tion with Clio Cup squad WDE Mo­tor­sport.

Run by Bill U’ren, BAB bought a Fi­esta from Wayne Ea­son’s team last year but has held off from mak­ing its de­but in the cham­pi­onship, with karter Josh Steed pre­vi­ously too young to com­pete.

Now aged 14, Steed is el­i­gi­ble to race and has a car reg­is­tered for the fi­nal three rounds of the sea­son. The car could be en­tered for the sixth round at Sil­ver­stone on Au­gust 27/28.

WDE pre­vi­ously ran cars in Fi­esta Ju­niors and will be on hand to as­sist BAB with its ef­forts. Ea­son ex­pects BAB to learn quickly, how­ever.

“I missed do­ing Fi­esta Ju­niors and it just seemed like a nat­u­ral pro­gres­sion to help take BAB there,” Ea­son said.

“We’ll be there to help as much as needed, but they’re a very pro­fes­sional team and shouldn’t have many prob­lems. Once they get out and peo­ple see what they can do they’ll be im­pressed.”

WDE has a sec­ond Fi­esta up for sale, which Ea­son said he was keen to keep hold of un­til BAB was in a po­si­tion to take on a sec­ond driver for the cham­pi­onship.
