Cowley heads stateside for F1600 assault
BRSCC Pre-’90 Northern and National champion Matthew Cowley will compete in F1600 in the United States next year with Team Pelfrey.
The 19-year-old, who won the Northern and National titles in 2015, has tested with the outfit twice before signing with the team that ran Brit Jordan Cane – now in BRDC British F3 – in 2015.
“With race and championship winning teams all the way up to Indycar, Team Pelfrey was our first choice after deciding to race in the States,” said Cowley. “We did a mid-season test last year, and I was impressed with their professionalism. I can’t wait to go racing.”
Pelfrey F1600 team manager Geoff Bushor said: “Signing Matthew to our programme solidifies Team Pelfrey’s intentions to bid for yet another championship.
“Matthew’s experience in British Formula Ford will be one of his biggest assets in the coming season.”
