Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
