Kennedy steps up with BMW tour­ing car out­ing in run at Sil­ver­stone

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Teenager Char­lie Kennedy made his se­nior race de­but at Sil­ver­stone in a BMW M3 that his fa­ther Ja­son has built over a 16-year pe­riod.

Kennedy, who will be 17 in March and lives in Sil­ver­stone vil­lage, has spent three years in Ju­nior Sa­loons and made his graduation in the All­com­ers race at the Wal­ter Hayes Tro­phy.

“I worked at Pro­drive for 15 years,” said Ja­son, who en­gi­neered M3s in pe­riod. He started build­ing the car at the time his son was born and it was fin­ished in time for them to tackle the Rock­ing­ham Stages Rally last De­cem­ber.

“It’s more for rac­ing,” said Ja­son and they now plan to race it more reg­u­larly in 2017.
