Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Fi­esta Ju­nior run­ner-up Bradley Burns will switch to the Re­nault UK Clio Cup Ju­nior se­ries for his sec­ond full sea­son of car rac­ing this year.

The 15-year-old was nar­rowly beaten by Harry Good­ing to the Fi­esta ti­tle at Brands Hatch last year and will now join Jam­sport – which ran Good­ing in Fi­es­tas – for his Clio as­sault this sea­son.

“The UK Clio Cup Ju­nior car marks the next step for young driv­ers in per­for­mance, tech­nol­ogy and engi­neer­ing and if I can get a year or two of that un­der my belt be­fore pos­si­bly mov­ing into the se­nior UK Clio Cup then great,” said Burns.

Jam­sport boss Jamie Go­ing added: “Bradley pushed our driv­ers all the way in last year’s Fi­esta Ju­niors – it’s ob­vi­ous just how ex­cit­ing a young tal­ent he is, which is why we’re de­lighted to have signed him.”
