Priaulx Jr to look at sin­gle-seaters

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
