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.”
