Sports 2000 star moves across to OSS
Former Sports 2000 champion Patrick Sherrington will compete in the Open Sportscar Series this season with a new MCR Sports 1600 Turbo car.
Sherrington won the Sports 2000 Duratec title in 2014 and 2015 having previously raced in Formula Vee.
“Having worked with MCR to develop their successful Sports 2000 car into a multiple title-winning package the time seemed right to take on the challenge of the ultradeveloped OSS machines,” he said. “I am looking forward to the extra power matched to extra downforce and of course the added fun of racing against my old school friend Mike Jenvey [2015 OSS champion, who had previously also raced in Sports 2000].”
OSS coordinator Alan Jenkins added: “MCR is the 13th manufacturer to register this year, demonstrating the benefit of open regulations. We offer drivers an almost unrestricted ability to work on their cars, race by race, and to improve.”
