Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Fi­esta Ju­nior cham­pion Harry Good­ing will switch to the Re­nault UK Clio Cup Ju­nior se­ries for 2017.

The 15-year-old be­came the youngest ever win­ner of the Fi­esta cat­e­gory last year and will re­main with the Jam­sport squad that took him to the ti­tle. He will join his main ri­val from last sea­son, Bradley Burns, in the team’s Clio line-up.

“When I first drove the UK Clio Cup Ju­nior car I im­me­di­ately knew where I wanted to be for 2017,” said Good­ing. “It gives you loads of con­fi­dence to go look­ing for new lim­its and it’s an op­por­tu­nity to move into much more mod­ern ma­chin­ery.

“This will also teach me a lot about the car ahead, I hope, for a move in a cou­ple of years into the se­nior UK Clio Cup. That’s the one all the tour­ing car teams are watch­ing for their fu­ture driv­ers.”

Jam­sport team boss Jamie Go­ing said: “It’s great to have Harry on board again. I think him and Bradley to­gether will work re­ally well.”

Go­ing added that the team could run up to five cars in the in­au­gu­ral sea­son of the cat­e­gory.
