Priaulx Jr to look at single-seaters
Sebastian Priaulx says he is considering a move into British F4 for 2017 instead of contesting a second season in the Ginetta Junior championship, despite winning the Winter Series at Brands Hatch last weekend.
Son of three-time World Touring Car champion Andy, Priaulx won the event with two victories last Sunday ( see racing reports, p27), with the title giving him a half price entry for a campaign in either the Junior championship or the GT5 Challenge next year.
But after winning the title, Priaulx said he was still weighing up his options for 2017, admitting he had hopes to race in F4.
“Even after this I’m not sure I’ll be here next year,” he said. “The Ginettas are great, but I would like to do F4.
“Unfortunately it’s just so expensive, and you have expenses like tyres which you just throw money at. You don’t have that in the Ginettas, so that’s always a factor.”
